Engine won't turn in park

Hello,
I have a Flair 1991 26R.
I came back from a 5 hours trip yesterday and the engine wont turn in the "P" position.
But if I slide it in the "N" position, it will turn and start perfectly.

After some research, it seems that it might point to the Neutral Safety Switch.

Make sense ?
Does it need to be fix ASAP ?

Thanks so much !

Thanks so much for the reply Bob.
Is this something I should fix ASAP ?

This looks like a pretty basic repair on a car, but not sure on my RV.
IS this accessible without removing many pieces ?
I have basic skills and tools.

Thanks !

Switch should be on steering column down low.....two screws...the switch has a hole through it, I think from the back, that a toothpick could be used in, to align the moveable inside of switch to align it to it housing.....it's been awhile, but if switch won't drop right back on and the screw holes line up, with the shifter either in neutral or park, then select the other gear.....one or the other will let it drop on....if the tab that is the moveable part is up at one end, it'll align with park....if it's almost in the middle of it's travel, it'll be neutral....

I think you may have a C6 transmission in that older rig and your going to find the neutral safety switch on the side of the transmission.

Combination switch is on the left side of your E4OD transmission. It functions as neutral safety switch, back up light switch and tells the computer which position you selected. There are alignment marks for the neutral position. I suspect the switch will need replacing.

Awesome, thanks guys.

Going on a road trip for the weekend, do I need to get this fixed ASAP or it can wait for next week ?

If it acts up, hold the key to start and slowly move the shifter up and down near neutral. You may find the spot where it cranks.
