90 E-Tec Starting Issue

Hello everyone,,

I have a 90 E-Tec and it has trouble starting at times. The gear selector needs to be slightly adjust, or put into gear then placed back into neutral before it will start. It doesn't appear to be a battery or starter motor issue (they're both) new. Would it be an electric issue, such as a TPS (throttle position sensor)?


I do hope someone may be able to assist.

Most likely neutral switch in control box or engine. Wrong adjustments or faulty switch.
