Gear shifter - ignition

Asked by Dec 27, 2014 at 10:46 AM about the 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr ST Quad Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 V8. I have problems starting my engine. I have to
move the gear shifter around in Park to get it to start. Is there a ignition safety swith
some where that may be bad. Advance auto said there were no ignition safety switches
on this truck. When I try to start the engine it just clicks until I get it in the right position.

You have a neutral safety switch that might be going out.
