MY CAR AT TIMES DOES NOT START. WHEN THIS HAPPENS I HAVE TO PUSH UP MY GEAR SHIFT AND TURN MY CAR ON AT THE SAME TIME (AUTOMATIC)

2001 Mazda Protege • 75,000 miles

When I try to start the car nothing happens - dead.
then I push up the gear stick (automatice) up and hold it and turn the key and the car starts.

It sounds like the neutral safety switch is out of adjustment or is bad.
