Warning: During the following checks there is a chance that the vehicle could lunge forward causing damage or injuries. Allow plenty of room around the vehicle, apply the parking brake firmly and hold down the regular brake pedal during the checks.
1. Automatic transmission equipped models have a neutral start switch which prevents the engine from starting unless the shift lever is in neutral or park.
2. Try to start the vehicle in each gear. The engine should crank only in park or neutral.
3. Make sure the steering column lock allows the key to go into the lock position only when the shift lever is in park.
4. The ignition key should come out only in the lock position.
If you have a standard transmission just let me know and I will tell you what you must do. Your welcome
