Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The light on dashboard showing the transmission in park lights up so i am assuming there is a bad switch that doesn't see that the transmission shifter (automatic) IS actually in park is bad (?); I have moved the steering wheel and shifter about every way I can think of while trying to start it and I have charged the battery (plus the other electrical systems work - like lights) so its not a dead battery. looks at a Haynes manual but don't even see a description of there being a switch in the transmission but that sure looks like what the dash would be trying to tell me; can anyone confirm and can i do anything besides having it towed???
Try starting it in neutral.could be the neutral safety switch

Have you checked to see if there is power (12v) going to the small trigger wire on the starter? (with key turned to "start" position) If there is, it's possible that your starter is bad. If not, check the neutral safety switch and the ignition switch for power coming in and out with key again in start position. Before doing this, see if you can get the car onto level ground where it's safer to work.
