Wow no year stated.. now that is a hard row to hoe.
engine will not crank, right?, no car starts unless cranked,!
(my car push starts or gravity starts, but not yours i bet)
mine is M/T.
step 1, check all fuse. first.
all below is generic answer, no year, no joy, no details.!!!

all modern cars , USA have a park lock out feature.
to start cars , (until newer, more on that later) no year, is pain.,
the brake pedal depressed and brake lamps glowing.?

then the PRNDL switch on transmission must work or the
The tranny lamp showing wrong, proves PRNDL failure.

on older cars, there is a bypass switch for park lock. (on console)
all operators guides show this and tell you what to do.!!
if not , ? that means not there. RTM!
on newer cars, they made the bypass switch ILLEGAL.
so is gone, (not posting year, makes all this so hard)
on newer cars they added a 3rd permissive, a cable to the key switch that loves to fail on many cars.
also the older cars can start in neutral and park
so why not try both. (and the bypass, if fitted)

the FSM covers this fully and how to test it. Buy it and read.
alldata.com will cover the permissive electrics on this feature.

here is a primer on this system.

Grounded out wires and it won't crank over


A/T or M/T transmission, they are wired diffr.!
I guess, you know flashing is bad wiring , right?

but this no crank page solves this.
takes only $20 voltmeter to be , effective.

to crank takes but 1 wire. (starter good)
the ST line or start line.
suzuki calls this 1 wire the Start line, (amazing fact)
at the key switch a black-red wire.
then after passing through the (clutch/ or A/T park switch)
the color changes, 1 time to blk-yell, then lands on the starter.
its very simple and fully show here, in details.

1998 Honda Accord Won't Start


Park neutral safety switch maybe be the reason for the no crank ! Try putting the vehicle in park ,then try to crank the engine . Testing the electrical circuit is the best way to trouble shoot this problem , along with do a voltage drop test on the starter circuit ! This will test the battery cables an connections .

Does it have a manual or automatic transmission ? Manual ? clutch switch . Looking at a wiring diagram I also see a starter cut relay !

Then click the search button , then click the blue link ! Check the starter cut relay also . Videos on youtube showing how to test a relay controlled circuit !

My Chrysler Pacifica(2004) doesn't seem to


when a car does not start in park or stay in park that is your neutral safety switch on the transmission. the latch can be the lock actuator.

Shifter shows in park but in reverse, button will not let shifter work


Linkage adjustment. As for the button you will have to take shifter apart to unlock it. Car won't start as the switch is not being engaged. Some start up in neutral, don't know if yours does this.

2008 Saturn vue won't go out of park and shows it being in reverse and won't start.


Broken shift cable ?
If the neutral safety switch is on the transaxle and the cable is broken, the switch could still be in the reverse position.

Put a new engine in a 1998 isuzu rodeo now it won't start. I thought it was the neutral safety switch because the R was on the dash and it was in park


This could be the problem. If your dash indicator is showing reverse but the transmission is in park it could be the safety switch. I'm not talking about the safety switch in the transmission though. In automatics they put a second switch to kill the starter from engaging. You need to adjust the linkage. If your shifter isn't actually on the column but the indicators are there is a cable that attaches the floor shift to the column and that is adjustable. Put the Floor shifter in Park and turn the column section nearest the dash by hand until you find park. Then adjust the cable length as needed. If all you have is the column shift it is still a cable adjustment. Set the emergency brake, drop the shifter to low 1 and adjust the cable linkage by loosening it on the transmission and manually move it all the way to low 1 then tighten it down then move the shifter to park and repeat teh adjustment process to verify that it is properly aligned. Lock the linkage back down and see if the vehicle will start, if it doesn't move the shifter to neutral and try to start the vehicle if the vehicle starts then check the column shift safety switch at the park position to make sure it is still in place and working. Typically, if the vehicle won't start in Park or Neutral it is more likely to be the Transmission neutral safety switch.

I have a 2008 dodge charger se. I try to start it and it wont start in park. I place it in neutral and it takes a few times to finally get it to crank. I replace the solenoid relay already and reset the...


The Neutral safety switch in the Transmission is the problem. If it doesn't send the signal to the computer when it is in park it won't crank over. Replace the Neutral safety switch and the problem should be resolved. Make sure you check the linkage for proper adjustment if you have a center console shift. That doesn't actually connect directly to the transmission except through a linkage and it may show to be in park but not actually be fully engaging in park. Sometimes you can turn the lower part of the steering column by hand to get it to lock fully in park if this is the case with your situation then for sure it is the linkage being out of adjustment.
