have a 2007 Chrysler Sebring. The gear shaft is in park but the dash shows it in Drive. The car will not start now. The red lightning bolt signal is on also.

My car has 210000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The engine might not start because the neutral start safety switch "thinks" the car is in drive. There is a problem with the selector, the switch and/or the shift/gear selector cable adjustment. To figure out which of the three, the required diagnostic is a shift indicator inspection. The lightning bolt warning light means that there is a problem with the electronic throttle control system on the engine. The electronic throttle control system can be inspected, and reset as needed, if you request a warning light diagnostic - throttle control.
