Default Help on 97 autolock and starting

1997 D90 NAS.
Stripped interior to replace carpet. Had to undo the transmission lever mount.
Reassembled, started the car and it would not move out of park. Switched it off, went to restart and nothing. No click, nothing. Electrics all ok but not turning over, any ideas?

Do your brake lights work when you press the pedal?

Also, when I had my '97 console/auto shifter torn down, I removed that pin from the safety solenoid so I can't get locked in park ever again.
