Check the shift cable that goes between the shifter and the transmission. If it's damaged internally it will not move properly and the condition you stated will be a symptom. Easiest way to check it is to disconnect the transmission end of cable and see if it moves freely. If not, replace it.

It sounds like there is some slight wear in either the cable,(stretched a little), or the linkages themselves. The next time it doeasn't start try putting the car in neutral. If the N lights right up and the car starts then probably the Neutral safety switch is ok. Believe it or not it's one of those problems where if you're right there it's easy to determine but hard ti diagnose over the phone, so to speak. For the sake of argument, the neutral safety switch is probably alot less expensive to try first... Next time you're parked and it won't start try going all the way to low and back to park rather quickly. If it goes right in and starts I would have the linkage adjusted. Good luck

It's a fuse issue. Part of the shift interlock system.
If the radio is also not working, it's the cigarette lighter fuse. This one fuse controls the cigarette lighter, the radio, and the shift interlock system. It's in the kick panel fuse box on the driver's side.
If it's not that fuse, it's the "Stop" fuse in the same panel. Both blown fuses create the same behavior.
Easy fix! Don't bother with a mechanic. If the fuse continues to blow, take it to be checked.

shifter needs to be inspected. The shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has
to be open and realign.
are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and
suddenly this occurred then its shifter
assembly alignment issue.
i suggest you to refer these gear shift issues, which are mostly noticed. These
are direct links with appropriate solutions to
the specific problems of gear ****.
