    The neutral safety switch function should stop vehicle from starting with gear shifter in any position except park or neutral (that is also a State of Virginia state inspection item as well to check). So until cause of why vehicle is stuck or electronically thinks it is in drive is corrected it is not supposed to crank and start. Park Neutral Position (PNP) Switch or Wiring can cause both of your conditions. Recommend call Kris or Andrew at CarMasters 456-0722 so you and get vehicle in for proper diagnostic, Jim
