My name is Pete and I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.

This vehicle should have a selector position switch located in the shifter assembly and this switch indicates to the vehicles control units that it is in park.If this switch fails and reads incorrectly it will cause this no start like this here usually requiring the shifter itself needing replaced.

I am unable to locate the exact diagrams on how to test this on this model here but I would have fault codes checked with a scan tool that can communicate with this vehicles computers as well as the scan tool used to monitor the data to see if the gear selector shows being in park when in park.If it does not then the control units think the vehicle is not in park and will keep the engine from turning over and starting.This can cause this type of fault here.

Thanks Pete
