It only starts in neutral.
I assume its the some sort of safety switch since it will start in neutral. At first it was sporadic but now its the way it is.

Thanks in advance!

Since they are the least expensive, I would start out with replacing the shift linkage bushings. I had this same issue and new bushings solved it. Then move onto the the more expensive neutral safety possition switch. Just replacing the bushings solved the same issue for me.
