Default 2007 PT dead in the driveway.

2007 automatic dead in the driveway. Dash indicates it is in reverse. Will not start. Shifter will move through the gear selections.

What is broken.

The shift cable...

Chances are that the shifter is not moving the lever on the transmission which is truly in reverse. Thus the neutral safety switch will not let the car start.

To check this, remove the air filter box and have someone work the shifter to see of the level on the transmission moves. If not, chances are that the problem is either right there where the cable attaches to the lever or it's below the center console right in front of the shifter where the cable attaches.
