First check to make sure the inertia switch has not tripped. It is located in the passenger side lower kick panel area.Nest check fuse #5 and #7 both 15 amp in the driver side heelboard fuse box located behind the carpet cover in between the rear seat cushion and floor.Also make sure the battery is not weak or discharged and see if the shifter will release from park with the ignition on and foot on the brake. If so see if it will start in neutral.Let me know.
