This reply shows my shift cable adjustment, for starting in Park and Neutral.

Test the VTA alarm. Lock the vehicle w/ a window open, reach in, unlock the door then open the door. The lights should sound and the horns blink, or something like that. Assuming that happens, then those signals will indicate when the VTA has disabled the ignition.

Mine does that when I disconnect the pos battery clamp. To resolve it I lock the drivers door then unlock it with my key. Problem solved in my case.
