There is a safety switch that disables the starter unless the trans is in Park or Neutral. If it is not fully in Park, that may not be activated. Try putting it in Neutral, you may be able to start it there. But you also need to find out why it won't shift fully into Park. Maybe the linkage is binding, or maybe it is just misadjusted.

SOURCE: I cannot shift my 98 Sable out of park into a gear

Sounds like a problem with the brake light switch. Do the brake lights work? It is a problem with the shift interlock system. It is controlled by the brake light switch on the brake pedal bracket.

Testimonial: "Actually the brake pedal switch must have been kicked so it was not aligned properly. A little realignment, no tools needed and everything works fine"

Starter wont crank ,engine wont start even when i cross starter and starter turns engine over, shifter wont come out of park what do i need to check


I can't help much w/o year--make--model? Do you have a security system on this vehicle?
Most starters have two voltage circuits, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the start position, may be wired through neutral switch, depending on the tranny, maybe you have a starter relay? The starter motor usually grounds through the engine block. The fact you can jump the starter motor and it cranks, sounds like the ground is ok. Use a test light, check for voltage on those two voltage terminals. Make sure tranny is out of gear and parking brake is set.
Some makes and models have shift-interlock, you can't shift it unless you step on the brake. Do the brake lites work? If not fix that first.
Some makes and models have a shift-interlock bypass button so you can press the button, then shift into neutral. Parking brake set.

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.

Engine wont start


check that the ignition fusible link is intact. There may be an inertia switch that has shut down as it would recognise the spin out as an accident. Check with a service centre of an accredited auto electrician

Wont start


the clicking noise is usually 2 things, step on try jump starting car and if starts have battery tested as it is probably bad (free testing at most chain auto stores), the other usual problem is that the starter has gone bad, when whoever tried turning off car while driving might have put into start mode and burnt out the starter when it engaged at high speed.

Car wont start


try to start it in neutral. the trans. has a safety switch that will not allow the car to start in anything, but park and neutral. sometimes the shift lever gets a little out of line with the gear indicator. also try firmly shifting into and out of park a few times. this may flip the switch. good luck

I put the key in the ignition and turn it forward i see my lights come on and radio comes on but when i try to turn key to start the car it wont turn


The solution lies in the interlock with the shift linkage. Make sure the transmission and therefore the shift colomn make it into park or neutral.
