Hi welcome to just answers. My name is ***** ***** i hope to be of some help . is posible your safety neutral switch on the transmission is bad or out of adjustment. Try crancking the engine with transmission shifter on the newtral position let me know if it cranks ok then.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
no it would not crank when in neutral. It did crank once I held the gear leaver hard left to Park. I had a new transmission installed 3 months ago.
Expert:  Ricardo Hohl replied 2 years ago.
ok if it does not crank in neutral then you may have a bad safety newtral switch and will need to replace it, if your transmission was replace 3 months you should be under warrenty and they will replace the switch at no cust to you.
