4l60e no start in park

i got a 2002 chevy s10 2.2 with a 4l60e auto trans and when i was puttin it back together i believe i misadjusted the range selector cable and i know that it has a safety feature were it will only start in park but for me to start it i have to go past D then back to N for it to start it is not starting in park i have followed the directions for adjustment and made sure my column shifter is in neutral and removed the positive assurance pin and rotated the range select lever clockwise then counter clockwise twice two detents i have then pulled cable completely forward and hooked it on the selector lever to the trans and still nothing i have to go down the gears, P R N D the back up to N for it to start and when it starts in neutral it thinks its in Reverse
im pretty lost right now if any one could help i would appreciate it

your neutral safety switch has nothing to do with your prindl indicator, it is located on the steering column above the floor. i'd bet your problem is there. it's mounted on ratchet teeth. put trans in park, check neutral safety with a meter and adjust it acordingly

odds are that when you put the PRNDL switch back on the manual arm shaft that you broke the internal tabs that hold it on the shaft tight. when i r&r any of the late model 4l60e's with these switches, i always file the edge of the manual arm shaft that the switch slides over so that it doesnt do that.
what happens is when the manual arm nut is tightened down it swells the shaft that the switch has to slide over and when you try and put it on, it breaks the holding ends inside the switch and will rock on the shaft and be out of adjustment all the time.
file the manual arm shaft at the edge where the arm sits at when tight on both sides and get where the new switch will go on without much effort.
