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.

My 2007 gmc just stopped running one day so i replaced the starter and im stillvhaving the same problem. it wont even turn over

Try moving the shift lever in and out of gear and back to Park then try it. Have you tried starting the truck with the shifter in Neutral? If it turns over and starts, I would check the Neutral Safety Start Switch and it's connection down under on the side of the transmission? If you are experiencing lights and dashboard indicators coming on when inserting the key in the ignition but zero response from the solenoid on the starter or the starter turning over when turning the key switch to the start position, I would definitely check the Neutral Safety Start Switch. This switch is the one that allows you to start the vehicle by making sure you are in Park or Neutral. It's in a location on the side of the transmission where salt, sand and corrosive road debris can get trapped that eats away at wires and connections.

91 nissan sentra classic key is stuck in ignition

The tumblers have probably collapsed. They are brass and they wear out and fall into the space between the key stock and the cylinder. The switch may have a combination of functions and it is called a neutral safety switch. IT could control starting from park and neutral, turning on the back up lights in reverse.

What is a neutral safety switch?

The Neutral Safety switch monitors the position of your gear selector lever and either interrupts or allows the starting circuit in your car or truck to do its job. On newer vehicles it may also monitor the position of the brake pedal to make sure that the vehicle is in park or neutral AND that your foot is on the brake.

If your vehicle is equipped with a neutral safety switch, it should NOT start UNLESS the transmission is in Neutral or Park. On the other hand your vehicle SHOULD start when it is in Neutral or Park. If your car will start in Neutral but not in Park, you have a bad switch. Also, if your car or truck will only start by turning the key to the start position and wiggling the gear selector lever, your neutral safty switch is in need of replacement.

The nuetral safety switch is usually found near the gear shifter. If your car has the gear shift on the column, then the neutral safety switch is usully mounted on the steering column near the brake pedal. On floor mount or console mount vehicles you will find the nuetral safety switch mounted near or on the shifter mechanism.

Trying to locate the nuetral safety switch in 1990 GMC 1/2 ton

The back-up light switch is incorporated into the neutral/park safety switch. The neutral safety switch on 1988-94 models is mounted in the steering column.

Neutral Start/Back-Up Switch
The procedure is for switches that are mounted on the transmission only.
This adjustment is performed with the switch removed from the vehicle. Neutral position tool J 41364-A or its equivalent is required for this procedure.
  1. Position tool J 41364-A or its equivalent onto the park/neutral switch. make sure that the slots on the switch are lined up with the lower tabs on the tool.
  2. Rotate the tool until the upper locator pin on the tool is lined with the slot on the top of the switch.
Do not remove the tool from the switch.
  1. Install the switch and remove the tool.

Hope this helped (remember rated this post).

How to replace neutral saftey switch on a 1980 cadillac deville?

Use like reference guide for GM Cadillac 1967-1989 Repair Guide Neutral Safety Switch - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

All Except 1985-89 Eldorado and Seville
See Figure 1
The neutral safety switch prevents the engine from being started in any transmission position except Neutral or Park. The switch is located on the upper side of the steering column under the instrument panel on column shift cars, and inside the shift console on floor shift models.
  1. Remove the console for access on floor shift models.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors.
  3. Remove the neutral switch.

To install:
  1. Place 1967-70 column shift lever models in Drive, and 1971 and later models in neutral. Locate the lever tang against the transmission selector plate on column shift models.
  2. Align the slot in the contact support with the hole in the switch. Insert a 3 / 32 in. (2.38mm) diameter pin in place. The switch is now aligned in Drive position.

1973 and later neutral safety switches have a shear-pin installed to aid in proper switch alignment so that insertion of a pin is unnecessary. Moving the shift lever from Neutral shears the pin.
  1. Place the contact support drive slot over the drive tang. Install the switch mounting screws.
  2. Remove the aligning pin. Connect the electrical wiring, and replace the console.
  3. Set the parking brake and hold your foot on the service brake pedal. Check to see that the engine will start only in Park or Neutral.

Fig. 1: Installation of a common neutral safety switch

See Figure 2
1974 and later cars do not have a neutral safety switch. Instead, these cars have an interlock between the lock and the transmission selector, which is non-adjustable.
  1. Place the shift lever in Neutral.
  2. Move the switch until you can insert a gauge pin, 3 / 32 in. (2.38mm) diameter, into the hole in the switch and through to the alignment hole.
  3. Loosen the switch securing screws. Remove the console first, if necessary.
  4. Tighten the screws and remove the pin.
  5. Step on the brake pedal and check to see that the engine will only start in Neutral or Park.

Fig. 2: Adjustment of a common neutral safety switch

1985-89 Eldorado and Seville
See Figure 3

All neutral safety/back-up light switches come with a small plastic alignment pin installed. Leave this pin in place.
  1. Place the shifter assembly in the Neutral position.
  2. Remove the shifter lever-to-switch nut and the lever.
  3. Disconnect the electrical connector from the neutral safety/back-up light switch.
  4. Remove the neutral safety/back-up light switch-to-transaxle bolts and the switch from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Position the shifter shaft in the Neutral position.

If using an old switch or the plastic pin (new switch) is broken, install a3/32in. (2.38mm) diameter pin gauge (drill bit) into the neutral safety/back-up light switch; the switch is then locked into its Neutral position.
  1. Align the flats of the shifter shaft and the neutral safety/back-up light, then, align the switch-to-tang on the transaxle. Torque the switch-to-transaxle bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). Remove the pin gauge.
  2. To complete installation, reverse the removal procedures. Make sure that the engine starts only in the Park and Neutral positions.

How to adjust neutral safety switch

Usually neutral safety switches have asmall hole that a pin goes in, and then on install the shifter is placed in a position, like neutral, based on the switch positioning.

HOWEVER, I suspect that yours is installed, so I suggest plan B. FOOT ON BRAKE, turn key to on, move shifter into R.

Turn key to start, and slowly move shifter towards neutral.... Note exactly the shifter position when starter fires off, and release key, no start needed.

Then, do the same thing from Drive, move shifter towards N, with key in start position.

What you want is no start in either R or D, you knew that...And adjust neutral safety switch to "center" the starter actuation, preferably not until well into N, but that is not adjustable...

So, final is key to start position, test from Low, 2, d as you move shifter.... finally, you get start in N.

turn off.

Place in R, turn key to start and move towards Park, and you should have the starter fire off after out or R.

Hope this helps, that is what is involved.
