My Camry periodically won't start. Battery is fine. It appears that even though the shifter shows the car to be in park, the car doesn't think it is. Is there a way to manually override this?

Asked by Oct 19, 2014 at 02:09 AM about the 2002 Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It first did this a few weeks ago. The shifter cable has been replaced. It acts as if it is an
electrical problem, because we got it started once by jiggling the shifter handle and
retrying.

Check neutral safety switch. Check shifter cable. Could just be not adjusted correctly.

Thank you! Can you tell me how to check these?
