i have a 1994 2500 dodge ram 8.0 auto. about one time in three i have to start my truck in neutral insted of park. how/where do you adjust the neutral safety switch since it starts in neutral but not park its probably a shift linkage adjustment problem. same switch is activated in both positions wear in the various shift linkage components especially the plastic bushings can cause the indicated shifter position to be out of phase with the transmission shift lever position. disconnect the linkage from the transmission lever and manually move the lever throughout its travel range; there should be no lost motion felt between the detents. with the lever all the way to the rear park adjust the linkage so that the column shift lever agrees with the trans lever position. john .
