I'm afraid I have way way less experience than you...
But the shifter in the wrong position, ie not park or N, will not prevent the engine from turning off immediately once the key is turned CCW from the ON position. Early in ownership I actually accidentally turned off the engine on the freeway (thankfully stopped in traffic), but could not restart it in my panicked state to get going when traffic in front of me cleared.
I do hope it's the cheaper of the two possibilities for you!...
