I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.If the indicator isn't moving when you change the shift lever then most likely the neutral safety switch (PRNDL switch) is bad.
Do you have a volt meter?Let me know and I'll continue to help.Thanks
