Have to turn off the engine, but leave the key turned to on position, move the gear shift to neutral, and then restart the engine. Why?

    Sounds like a shift interlock problem. Check to make sure your brake lights are working. If not, repair as needed and try again.

    Brake lights work. Has to be something else.
