NO start in PARK; Starts only in NEUTRAL

It won't start in parking; starts perfectly fine in Neutral.

2012 Jeep Compass Sport/ Front Wheel Drive.
Engine: 2.0
88000 miles
CVT Transmission


Neutral Safety Switch/ Range Sensor?

or Shift cable adjustment?

Wouldn't be a shift capable adjustment, but brake switch I think would be the best bet. Any codes at all?

Thanks....No codes....
Honestly I'm an auto tech (Toyota-Honda). This is a Jeep from a Toyota client. I told him Jeeps are not my line....but I want to help.

Thing is, the Compass starts fine in Neutral.
