Most probably the Park and Neutral switch is bad. If you can't get it started by wiggling the gear shift, you would need to manually apply battery voltage to the starter solenoid to get it started.

The range sensor switch is inside the transmission and requires the valve body to be removed. Are you able to do that?

Which engine do you have?
