Neutral Safety Switch or Multi-lever positioning switch?

Hey everyone,

Wondering if anyone may know what needs replacing on my 02 7.3 auto trans. I need to push the gear selector up hard towards the dash while i turn the key for it to start. Is it the multi-lever positioning switch or the neutral safety switch?

I got an remote starter gift card for Christmas and want to get it installed but this needs to get fixed first!!!

Likely slop in the shifter linkage. this is usually caused by 2 loose torx head bolts at the end of the steering column. lay down by the accelerator and look under the dash and you'll see what i'm talking about.

wow ok I've never heard of that I will check that out tomorrow thank you!

And if that is tight and not the problem what else can we narrow this down to? I already adjusted the cable tension, btw.
