From the symptoms you describe, the problem is the neutral safety switch.

My 1997 jimmy will start but when you put it in gear it turns off wont start in neutral


Could be. You could take the switch off, leave it in the park position, and see what happens when you shift into drive.

I have a 2005 chevy cavalier i was pulling up to get gas when all of a sudden my gear would not shift to park so i put hte emergency brake on and killed the car now it wont start what could be going on


The neutral safety switch will not let you crank the engine in anything but park and neutral. If something happens to the shift cable the trans may still be in drive.

Car is in park on incline, and will not start.


There is a neutral safety switch to make sure car is neutral.If that switch went bad or becase your parked on incline the switch is not made up because car rolled back when you put it in park.If you can depending on the situation,put key in ignition,turn key till one click before it starts,apply emergency brake,depress regular brakes and shift car from park to drive then back to park.then turn off key and restart.If for some reason you try to shift out of park and it wont move you need to roll car a little forward or backward(have someone else do the pushing and be carefull not to put anyone in a pinch point between another car if this car is parked between two cars)With older cars this is usally the case.If this fixes your problem i would have a mechanic change switch because this will probrobly happen again.Be carefull.......

My 1999 Rodeo won't start right away. Sometimes, you turn it and nothing happens, put it in neutral (this is an automatic by the way) and it will start. Other times, it won't make a noise when you turn...


2 things, first have the battery checked/replaced. if all is well with battery. second, very unlikely, its the switch that makes sure you are in park or neutral before engine will get contact.

1997 Pontiac Sunfire (automatic) transaxle


I do not know what you are looking at in the manual, but you probably heard a horrible noise when you put it into park, as the parking pawl tries to hold the car in place. Thist usually does not harm the transaxle. If the engine won't start then something else happened, perhaps the neutral safety switch was damaged or knocked out of adjustment. You might try to move the shifter back and forth and then back into park and then try to restart. If that doesn't work try to put the car in neutral to start. If you must have the car towed somewhere the repair should not be expensive, just have them reset the neutral safety switch.
