yes it can be bypassed, but I dont do it. if you crank the car up and its in gear and ypu runover someone, their lawyer will come looking for me because I told you how to bypass a safety item.

SOURCE: what wires do I need
The wires on the Transmission Range Sensor that control the ability to crank the starter are the BLACK/GREEN wire at Pin 6 and the wire at Pin 10 which is either BLACK/GREEN or BLACK WHITE depending on your model. (build - date and transmission type)
With all that said, I think it only fair to warn you that bypassing these wires will set codes in your Engine Control Module. It is not going to like it if there is power at pin 10 with the transmission in reverse or any of the forward gears. This may also cause your transmission to not shift properly because the ECM will not know for sure what gear you are in.

Testimonial: "thanks so much for the information I will install a switch and only use it when needed and to ensure that this is my problem."
You can bypass the switch; it's just not recommended.
If you get stuck somewhere, because of this NSS Failure, (make sure the transmission is in park) you can place the key in the crank position, and use a small piece of wire to bypass the starter relay under the hood. It will get you home.
I would NOT recommend this as a daily occurrence; but, if you are stuck and need to get home - it will work.
