My friends van, not mine (I did sell it to him though) has a 1993 G20 van. You cannot start it in park, the key will only turn to accessories. You can turn the key to accessories and then put it in neutral and start the van.

Would that be the "neutral safety switch" and if so, is that a difficult fix/changing of the part?

Thoughts on this issue....

Thanks
Bob

Neutral safety switch is the most likely culprit, but even before that i would check the shift linkage adjustment. The transmission gear selector arm might not be going far enough into the "park" setting to trigger the NSS switch to allow the van to start in park.


Windows- they're what make a van worth owning!

Try holding the shifter lever tight up into the park position before starting. I have seen wear develop where the shifter was sagging and causing a no start.
