My dad had a rodeo and we replaced the neutral safety switch on it. Make sure you line it up right we had to adjust it a few times so it would know what gear it was in. And i hear ya on the starter, IIRC the alternator was also a pain in the ass to get to. you would thing there would be more room in the engine bay since it is an suv

Its around $100. That's what I paid for the NSS on my Cutlass Supreme.

I called around and it's over $250 locally for the part... Is there any way it could be the grease or something?

You have to be certain before you buy a part like that. You need to troubleshoot the issue with a meter before you throw parts at it.
If you're not able to do that then take it to a shop for troubleshooting.
As I stated above it could be many things. Any of which would cause the symptoms you are describing.
Typical when the NSS is going bad it won't start in Park, but it will start in NEUTRAL. Next time it happens try it in NEUTRAL and see what happens.
And obviously be careful. Put the parking brake on and keep your foot on the brake pedal while testing this.

Try advance auto parts or Auto Zone. They're usually the cheaper options.

You can always use coupons to save at Advance if you order online.

Well I pulled the n.s.s and cleaned it, applied dielectric grease and it started, but 2 mins down the road my check engine light and check transmission light both came on and the vehicle was extremely sluggish the whole drive. Anyone have any ideas?

Well it turns out the one of the metal connections was really loose and finally just snapped, so I have to get a new one. Damn pain in the ass to get the whole harness out but it's done.
