Won't go into park

1997 Toyota Camry will not go into park unless I manually go under the hood and push the lever down. Whats wrong and how can it be fixed?

Check the shifter and shifter cable that goes from the center console to the neutral safety switch (NSS).

Check the neutral safety switch for binding.

Check the manual valve the NSS sits on (the shaft the NSS rotates).

See where the problem is.

It allows the car to start in Park or Neutral only.
