    Have the electrical portion of your ignition switch tested , and make sure you have brake lights .If it starts while cranking ,let it start but don't letgo of the key completely- keep a LITTLE pressure on it and see if that makes a difference. Also relating to the shift inter-lock check your brake lights ,if they don't work then check your brake light switch (under dash with pedal).
