Occasionally car won't start in park but if I shift to neutral it starts.

Asked by Oct 18, 2016 at 10:25 PM about the 2010 Toyota Camry LE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have replaced the battery and the problem still occurs about once a month.
Is this a neutral safety issue??

Very well could be the neutral safety switch.

That switch is adjustable, sounds like it's not adjusted correctly. Disconnect the battery before crawling under there!

Automatic or Standard Transmission? Is there a Security System installed on this vehicle? Any warning lights ON or Flashing?
