Check the gear selector adjustment, it may be off causing the wrong gearto be selected and if it doesn't engage the neutral/park switch fully the starter lockout will prevent power to the starter motor.

Also there is a lever under the dash that connects to theshift tube that moves the gear selected cable. The two t30 torx scrrws tend to loosen...causing your problem
