My 2001 Pathfinder intermittently won't crank (turn key, radio and AC come on but no engine crank). If I push/pull gear shift, it starts - is there a sensor to make sure its in Park to start that may


Many cars do have a switch on the gear shift to ensure it will not start if not in park, turn on the reverse lights when in reverse, turn on the camera when in reverse, park lights, etc. Here is an article that mentions it a little bit, http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/transmission-drivetrain/154-0805-1987-2001-jeep-cherokee-neutral-safety-switch/.

HI Sandra

First let me start with explaining what they mean by " the inhibitor switch" . This device is really called the neutral safety switch. It's called that because the function of this switch is to prevent the vehicle from being started while the shift lever is in drive, reverse or any of the lower gears. Meaning that the car can only be started while the shifter is in park or neutral. This is only a safety device. What your problem sounds like is that this switch is not positioned correctly. When the switch is in the right position it recognizes if the car is in park or neutral or in gear. if adjusted correctly (and it's only a matter of millimeters) the car starts in park or neutral. if it's out of position (which is what your problem sounds like it wont let the car start). All that needs to be done is to position the switch correctly. Of course there is always the outside chance that the switch itself if faulty, still this is far from a costly repair. Go to a transmission shop and tell them you need your safety neutral switch adjusted because the car will not start in park sometimes. This should cost you at the most $30. Unless the switch is bad, the of course it could be as much as $200 to replace. I hope this helps you.
