Hello Walt, and thank you for letting us help you with your automotive question. Start by making sure that the vehicle is all of the way in Park. If it is not then this is the problem. Also see if anything changes in neutral. If the problem remains then you may have a bad ignition switch. It can also be a problem with the battery terminal connection. I would remove the cables and check them. Please let me know what you find.
