No START unless he wiggles the shift stick all over the place.

He has either a bad neutral safety switch or the shift cable is hanging up and not operating the transmission quadrant properly.

What exactly is the problem? What are the symptoms?
Sometimes it starts normally in Park and the other half of the time if it starts at all I have to sneak it from N towards R and then sometimes
it just won't start period. Yet after a trip home on the tow truck all is well again. Spent all funds on tows so now I need to somehow fix it my self. I am 100% disabled so it really stinks out loud. Thanks Ranger
