It seems to be your neutral safety switch has broken. The key will turn, but no start or anything correct? Do a search and you'll find all the info there. If I recall, it's a rather cheap fix.

Good luck.

I just had identical problem.

It was the transmission safety switch. The part cost $37.00 mail order from Rusty Cullen. Cost me 1 hour labor paid to a local independent garage to get it installed.

If your car does not start some time before you get the part installed, it will start if you shift to neutral first.

PartsShop (our benefactor) has the part and quick service. Look upwards at the page header. (shameless plug)
