Car only starts in neutral frist thing in morning

Have a 2008 Saturn - 30,000 miles. Most times it only starts in Neutral first time of day it is used. After this, fine. Had with dealer mechanics for 2 days and they say they can find nothing wrong. Can’t do anything unless they have the problem.

Are you saying it won’t start in PARK?

What does “won’t start” mean? Does it turn over? What exactly does it do?

I think every regular here knows the answer to this one, but we are waiting for you to provide a proper problem description.
