Check your Transmission Fluid level and if you are running a carbureted vehicle check all the hoses connecting to or around the carburetor. Those hoses hold a vacuum that signals the transmission when to shift. If that doesn't work then... Sounds like a pump or vale body failure in transmission

What is the purpose of a neutral safety switch?

Vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions require the use of a neutral safety switch. The neutral safety switch prevents the engine from being started unless the shift selector of the transmission is in NEUTRAL or PARK. It disables the starting circuit when the transmission is in gear. This safety feature prevents the accidental starting of a vehicle in gear, which can result in personal injury and vehicle damage. Vehicles with standard transmissions also have a safety switch that requires the driver to hold the clutch pedal to the floor to enable the starter to engage.
