The neutral safety switch is on the driver's side of the transmission (I'm guessing that you have an automatic). Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of one.

neutral safety switch pic

Welcome !

Here's neutral safety switch pic. Sometimes all you have to
do is unplug, clean the contacts, apply contact grease, replug,
and away you go.
