If I put it in neutral it will start sometime if park fails . If that doesnt work I take it from park to 3rd a couple of times or jiggle the gear shift ( it is automatic) it will start.If the car is warm from heat or sun, it almost always does not start.We have changed the neutral saftey switch. Did not fix the problem
