MAZDA MPV SHIFTER PROBLEM

2002 Mazda MPV • 185,000 miles

Hi! The gear shifter on this minivan was stuck in park and it wouldn't start, I disconnected the neutral safety switch and manually moved it to neutral and still wouldn't crank while the shifter still remain stuck in park, I decided to start the car bi passsing all this components and it started, I then notice the battery light had came on, run some tests and realize I needed to replace the alternator, replace the alternator, start the car the same way, the shifter became unstuck, let engine run for a while, turn it off and tried starting it normally with the key and it won't crank, I was wondering if you guys might have any suggestions or ideas about what would the problem be? I'm thinking on replacing the neutral safety switch.
I would very much appreciate your input, thanks.
