1991 560 sel mercedes wont start unless in neutral
It's normal. It has to be on N or P to turn on the engine.
Make sure that there isn't something in the way of the shifter making it all the way into park. If the shifter is off slightly the car will not start in park and you will be forced to start in neutral.
