Maybe a bad neutral or ignition switch.

Larry is on the right track. Try putting your foot on the brake and see if it starts in neutral. I assume it is an automatic? If it starts in neutral then the neutral safety switch is bad. If it doesn't start then I would start looking at the ignition switch.
