Your neutral safety switch is faulty or out of adjustment.when the car is in park,it thinks it is in reverse and will not let the starter work.the neutral safety switch is mounted on the transaxle.it has a plug on it.remove the plug and put some contact cleaner on it to rule out the chance that oil has caused a conductivity issue.if that does not work,replace the switch,it is worn out

If you start it in neutral, the auto locks don't auto lock. As an mechanic, I start in neutral out of habit because it technically reduces wear by avoiding going through reverse.shift out of park while in acc to nuetral and start

My suv won't shift gears what can i do?


if the shifter is moving then it is probably your trans. but if the shifter is not moving from the park possition (if it is an automatic) check to see if brake lights are coming on if not check fuse for brake lights,it also controls your shift lock.try turning key to possition before lights come on dash board and moving shifter into nuetral pos. then start car and put into gear give that a try, if it does the shift lock isn`t working.

1995 cherokee 4wd trouble starting must move gear shifter several times before it will start


try starting it in nuetral. if it starts everytime then the shifting switch is going out. If nothing changes then maybe the ignition switch is going bad and just by chance it starts by wiggling the shifter.
If this is a manual trans maybe the nuetral safety switch on the clutch pedal is going out.

2005 pontiac key won't start car


If you have a center console shifter make absolutely positve the gear select is all the way up into PARK, even the slightest thing in the way can cause the key to lock you from starting vehicle, if a coin or other object fell down into the slot of the shifter it could effect it. If you try to start in Nuetral place foot on the brake first, shift into Nuetral and try to start. The start/Nuetral safety switch could be bad as well, but hopefully it is something as simple as a penny in the way. wiggle shift lever all the way into park. I had a guest the other day who could not get her key out of the car, and she had a coke from wendys in the cup holder, the shift lever would not go all the way home by quarter of an inch, as soon as I moved the cup forward the shift lever fell into place on its own and the key came right out.
