Sounds like the typical gear switch failure, google it, you will see what I mean.

Neutral safety switch located on driver side of trans. Could need adjustment or replacement. Two bolts attach it to trans. Clean and look close. When trans in neutral there is two little lines that will line up when it is adjusted correctly. Block wheels to Make sure it does not roll over you when your under it!
