the neutral safety, or "inhibitor" switch on the side of the automatic transmission. It is something of a pain on this chassis as the clearance between the side of the tranny and the tunnel is pretty tight.

Your profile does not show your location, but the part is around $60 here in the States, and should be less then an hour to install.

Good luck,
