Car could have a damaged parking pawl or parking sector gear in the transmission. They get damaged when selector is shoved into park when the car is still moving. Failure to get into Park is why car won't start because of the neutral safety switch. Put car into "Neutral" and start the car then shift into Drive, then Park. You should be OK.
