How can I start 93 Tempo with a bad shifter cable?

I am told my 93 Tempo automatic needs a shifter cable. No one has one.

Shop said they also checked the battery, all battery grounds, engine ground, starter relay (put a new one in, same problem, then put the old one back), entire electrical system, ignition switch, as well as the neutral safety switch.

Question. Is there another way to start the car without the shifter cable? I don’t care about aesthetics, just need it to start.

Without a shifter cable, you won't be able to drive it. Have you tried jumping the starter, at the starter?
