Does is crank but not fire, or does it not crank at all?

On my 95, if the safety lanyard is pulled (or bad) it will allow the engine to crank but not fire.
The neutral safety switch on the transmission will not allow mine to crank at all if it's not in neutral or the linkage is not adjust correctly.

I found out that there was a jumper across my neutral safety switch because my linkage was out of adjustment (that might be your problem). The switch usually has two white wires on it.
