Hello and Welcome..

My name is XXXXX XXXXX Im happy to help you .

The issue with the shifter / start inhibitor switch wont cause a loss of spark no - it only interrupts the signal to the starter motor...

Loss of spark - can be the crank sensor... or, wiring to it ( often you get loom issues - breakdowns on these so - so check the wiring loom from there very carefully )

Too - it can be a coil fault... or, ign amplifier unit as fitted. Or , you can have a faulty Ecu - though that is rare...

So you need to check through the items above to get to the bottom of this one.

( Im assuming you have checked the general ignition side of things other than the above - inc the wiring / connections etc )... so then, its as above on this one to cure this for you.

Do let me know if you need anything else at all -

Kind Rgds - MIKE.
