Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora
Other than blown to shreds inside, It is probably the linkage that got the damage and now it won't read the neutral safety switch. You can first try to start it in neutral, do not try to start it an any gear, but move the shifter up and down a hair while trying it, the switch is real sensitive and they have to be just right. To get it right, You have to loosen up the bolts, it is located on the left side of the tranny, where the shifter connects and a bunch of wires, the switch moves left and right when you loosen it up, Get somebody in the car with the car in park, and turn the switch very slight back and forth and see if it hits it. If it does, lock it down there, sometimes they use a pin to set it, not sure about your car. If that is not the problem, I'm afraid you might have done some damage to the inside, Hope this helps.
