B&M Megashifter, only starts in reverse.

Last night I put a new B&M megashifter into my 85 Camaro with 700R4 tranny. Everything is in and works. I'm having issues with it not starting in park or neutral. It only starts in reverse. And my back up lights are on when the car is in park and in neutral, but not when I'm in reverse or drive.
If theres anyone with a suggestion or that's gone through this same thing and could shed some light on this issue would be appreciated.
Thanks!

You need to adjust your neutral safety switch.

I'd agree that is the first place to look

No adjustment needed. It sounds like you have mis wired your shifter. Looks like you wired you neutral safety switch into your reverse light switch and visa versa.

So basically, if I were to switch the two wires around. It may fix my problem? And if this doesn't do it, I should try doing some adjusting.

Yes that is why you can start in reverse and your reverse light are on in park and drive. Swap the wiring around on those switches and you will be good.
