Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just replaced the ignition switch, neutral safty
switch and starter solinoid. The car will only start
in reverse. None of the dash lights or anything
work in any other gear. When the car is running(in
reverse) and i try to put in neutral or park, the car
just dies. The headlights and dome lights work in
anygear.

I think the neutral safety switch needs adjusted. When installing a new one if the new one is not in the exact spot it needs to be it throws all the rest off. May could find the correct spot by taking it back off and moving the position one time or the part it mounts too if you go the wrong way it will not start unless its in neutral so then remove and go back the other way 2 spots to park. I recently done one and they move out of position fast and may miss it, I had to move mine from reverse back to park and took two tries to get it right.
