Re: [Chrysler300] Some stuff I could use

Curious here.  You can only get the starter to 'start' if the N button is fully compressed.  Why is an extra neutral safety switch even needed?  Could you get the starter energised if you were in D?  Short out the nss and isn't N the only button pushed that allows the car to start?  What is this old timer missing here?
