2006 rubicon no spark no neutral light

Hello I am working on a 2006 Rubicon for a friend. The motor started giving trouble shifting and he was getting a temp warning light. When he shut the bike off it would not turn or pull over. I ended up removing the motor and completely dismantling it to find a 5mm bolt stuck in the oil pump. The bolt came from a divider inside the oil tank. Replaced the oil pump and put the engine back in.
Tried starting the engine today and no spark and the gear position does not read on the dash.
Looking for some help. Should the coil still spark without the neutral light being on

Won't get spark if it can't tell what gear it's in.

So nothing at all on the gear position on the dash?

Jumped out the neutral switch and it’s now running. Now I need to pull the switch to check it out.

Did you download the FSM? It will have directions on ohming out the gear position switch.

If I recall correctly there are 2 switches on the shifter as well on the Rubicon.
