What switch? I've got the column shifter in park and the selector lever on the transmission in what I'm pretty sure is park. I see a little red cable that's nearly as thin as fishing line next to the shifter cable inside the column. Where does that go and what does it do?? Is that the switch you speak of??
EDIT: the little red cable is the indicator linkage.I don't think that is part of the problem.
EDIT: upon further tinkering, it seems that the gear sensor does not reset unless the key is on, so I had to cycle through the gears and then leave it in park with the key in before it would start.
