Hello! Let's see if we can work together and come to a satisfactory conclusion!

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 5 months ago.

You have removed the neutral safety switch. It has to make contact, before the starter will engage. Is it making contact? You can jump across it with jumper wire to test. But with transmission oil lite on, is the transmission oil level correct?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 5 months ago.

You say it won't move, the neutral switch has nothing to do with drive, just start. I would be checking the transmission oil level.

Is the transmission shifter sending voltage to the shift solenoids on the transmission? You have checked all the fuses? Did unit quit under use?

Does brake release? Do you have any means of checking voltage at he transmission?

oK. Will not drive unless park brake is released, and has to have battery voltage to the shift solenoids.
