e34 525td starter wont engage

hello, can anyone help, I have an e34 525td auto, when I turn key to start nothing happens, I have to turn ignition off and on sometimes 4-5 times I have been told it could be the park/neutral inhibitor switch, if so where is this switch. any help would be appreciated

There is the other possibility that it is the ignition switch.
