Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

Will it at the least crank?

Will it crank in neutral if it will not in park?

Hi it cranks in neutral and started its starting now but not confident it's going to start all the time
Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 9 months ago.


Since it now has started in neutral. The issue may be a transmission range sensor not always showing the shifter is in park to allow starting.

Do you need help diagnosing?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Car won't start what's my next step check fuses ?which ones ?
Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 9 months ago.

At this time will it crank in park and neutral or not crank in park and neutral?

If fuses are or were blown then there would be a short that we need to find. If this is an intermittent issue then it is not fuses.
