@katybug1986 yes it could be the neutral position switch but it could also be the starter relay. Test that first:
 
TESTING
 
Remove relay from the Power Distribution Center to perform the following tests.
 
A relay in the de-energized position should have continuity between terminal 87A and terminal 30.
 
Resistance value between terminals 85 and 86 (electromagnet) is 75 65 ohms.
 
Connect a battery to terminals 85 and 86. There should be continuity between terminal 30 and 87.

To answer your question, the park/neutral position switch is mounted on the valve body manual shaft.
 
SWITCH TESTING
 
Test switch continuity with an ohmmeter. Disconnect the switch and check continuity at the connector
 
terminal positions and in the gear ranges indicated in Figure 3. Switch continuity should be as follows:
 
² ContinuityContinuity should exist between terminals B and C with the transmission in Park and Neutral only (Fig.
² ContinuityContinuity should exist between terminals B and C with the transmission in Park and Neutral only (Fig.
 
3).
 
² ContinuityContinuity should exist between terminals A and E with the transmission in Reverse (Fig. 3).
² ContinuityContinuity should exist between terminals A and E with the transmission in Reverse (Fig. 3).
 
² ContinuityContinuity should exist between terminals A and G with the transmission in third gear (Fig. 3).
² ContinuityContinuity should exist between terminals A and G with the transmission in third gear (Fig. 3).
 
² ContinuityContinuity should exist between terminals A and H with the transmission in first and/or second gear (Fig.
² ContinuityContinuity should exist between terminals A and H with the transmission in first and/or second gear (Fig.
 
3).
 
² ContinuityContinuity should not exist in D position.
² ContinuityContinuity should not exist in D position.
 
PARK/NEUTRAL POSITION SWITCH REMOVAL
 
(1) Raise vehicle.
 
(2) Disconnect switch wire harness connector.
 
(3) Pry washer lock tabs upward and remove switch attaching nut and tabbed washer (Fig. 4).
 
(4) Remove switch adjusting bolt (Fig. 4).
 
(5) Slide switch off manual valve shaft.

TESTING

Remove relay from the Power Distribution Center to perform the following tests.

A relay in the de-energized position should have continuity between terminal 87A and terminal 30.

Resistance value between terminals 85 and 86 (electromagnet) is 75 65 ohms.

Connect a battery to terminals 85 and 86. There should be continuity between terminal 30 and 87.

SWITCH TESTING

Test switch continuity with an ohmmeter. Disconnect the switch and check continuity at the connector

terminal positions and in the gear ranges indicated in Figure 3. Switch continuity should be as follows:

² Continuity should exist between terminals B and C with the transmission in Park and Neutral only (Fig.

3).

² Continuity should exist between terminals A and E with the transmission in Reverse (Fig. 3).

² Continuity should exist between terminals A and G with the transmission in third gear (Fig. 3).

² Continuity should exist between terminals A and H with the transmission in first and/or second gear (Fig.

3).

² Continuity should not exist in D position.

(2) Disconnect switch wire harness connector.

(3) Pry washer lock tabs upward and remove switch attaching nut and tabbed washer (Fig. 4).
