Not sure what your asking but if your refering to the gear selector if its broke or something isn't functioning right it may keep your car from starting. You see all cars have a nutrual safety switch, the gear selector may be preventing the switch from doing it's job. Wich in turn make it seem like a bad starter. Hope this is what your looking for need more info to further diagnostics.

95 Blazer will not start Worked once by moving shifter around .?

Sounds to me like the neutral safety switch may be the culptrip. Not exactly sure where it is. Is this a floor shift or column shift? Will the engine try to start? in other words, does the starter engage? If not, then I would suspect the neutral safety switch. If the starter engages, but the engine won't start, then probably another issue.
