Sounds like a bad ignition switch. The neutral safety switch keeps it from operating in drive or reverse. Wiggle the key after it's running to see if the starter quits running.

Car in park turn key starter engages engine starts and you can hear the Bendix still spinning in the ring gear put car into drive and then they stop spending


Does the starter engage again when you go back to park ?
Shifting from park to drive would cut the circuit from the key switch to the starter. The neutral safety switch prevents you from cranking the engine in drive or reverse.
I would say the key switch is not turning off power to the starter when you go from start to run.

Hello Richard,

Will it shift back in to reverse, or park? From what you are saying it sounds like a linkage problem, not a serious gearbox problem.

Also, just have a look underneath and make sure it's not dropped a load of ATM fluid overnight.
