Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that can prevent the starter from engaging. The transmission range sensor is definitely a possibility but it may also be an ignition switch issue, wiring, the starter itself, cables and connections, or the engine controller itself may not be awake.

Is there any noise from the engine compartment when attempting to start the engine?
