2006 Mazda 3 won't start in park

I have a 2006 Mazda 3. It won’t start while it’s in park? Have to put it in neutral? Any suggestions?

The neutral safety switch needs adjustment or replacement, or the shift lever linkage.

I thought this was the vehicle with a seized engine and numerous other problems.

What do you mean? Are you referring to one of my older posts?
