Is the shifter the only thing that would keep car from cranking and being locked in park?
(1) Answer
no the crankshaft positioning sensor will do this also ,,and iits not that expensive,,Also you have a shifting interlock module,,that will lock it in park,,there is a flapper on the end of the consol,,just below the last letter ,,etc, park,,reverse,drive d1and d2 then at the bottom a small flapper you can use a bic pen to stick down the hole straight down with a slight push,and the car will come out of park,,,i had to replace mine,,called the shifting interlock module,,
