I have this shifter in my truck. Went to start it and nothing happens...but you can bypass the ignition switch and it turns over & starts. Using my meter, I checked the neutral switch on the shifter and I get no reading between the two posts. No matter what position the shifter is in, there's no continuity at all. I was expecting to have continuity with the shifter in park. I don't think I'd need to have the ignition on or the key in the start position to check the switch. Am I wrong? Never had a problem with starting the truck...it was fine one day and nothing the next.
