Default 2000 RS will not crank

I have a friend with a 2000 automatic RS that would not crank, it is not the battery and my guess it is gear position switch, where is this switch located?
and how hard is it to bypass.

Any other thoughts on what could be going on are appreciated.

Thanks, Dave

Get a test light and see if there is power at the A terminal on the starter from the battery. If there is then get someone to go in the car and have them turn the car as if they were starting the car. Check for power at the B terminal on the solenoid, The ignition switch sends power then when cranking, If you are getting power at both terminals then you'll need a starter. I'd try tapping it a few times with a hammer and see if it will crank.

If you aren't getting power at the starter at the battery then it's a broken wire. If you aren't getting power from the ignition switch then it can be the switch, shift interlock or bad fuse. You can always jump the shift interlock switch.
