Bob I have a 1998 Chevy ***** ***** 4x4 I replaced the neutral

Customer Question

Bob I have a 1998 Chevy ***** ***** 4x4 I replaced the neutral safety switch and now the truck only starts if I move the shifter down to drive and move the shifter up to near reverse for it to start? What could this be?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Yea after installing new switch . Hooked battery up and went to start in park. Power but no start. Move shifter around and in neutral almost reverse it starts no problem . When trucks in park reverse lights on. In reverse lights off
