I have a 1994 Ford Thunderbird won't start someone said may be neutral start switch what is that and where is it located

Either on the side of the transmission or the shifter assembly. It keeps the car from starting in gear, drive or reverse, allowing it to only crank in Park or neutral. Keeps someone from accidently cranking it in gear and running over someone or into something .

98 Suzuki sidekick. started to park but it will notgo into park which keeps it from starting

the park lever is stuck in drive, why not say ? this?
the car does start in drive and neutraL.
So does it start in Neutral? crank over, ??????
no car starts if it cant crank (cept my M/T cars)
my 97 is a M/T. so is my 91 and 96.
the suzuki has a operators guide telling you (glove BOX)
how to use the park lock bypass. (the lock is failing here)
the system will not crank if park or netural is not selected first. by design and logic. (fact and features)

the 2 books 95 or 98 here will be correct. under trans usage and sARTING THE CAR. DOWN LOAD IT AND KEEP IT FOR next time.

it says in a nut shell , to access the bypass cover, and flip the lever there. (on the shift console left side)
see it? there, open it ?

Astrostart won't start the car

You may need to reset the system.

1. While engine is running (key in ignition switch), apply the brakes and hold the pedal down.
2. Move gearshift lever to neutral.
3. Apply the parking brake Once Twice
Note: The system can be set - at time of installation - to require that the parking brake be applied once or twice.
If set for two actuations, pause one second between the two.
4. Remove key from ignition (the system keeps the engine running).
5. Exit the vehicle.
6. Within 60 seconds, close all doors.
7. The system will stop the engine and blink the parking brakes once to confirm the sequence is valid (vehicle is
ready for a remote start command).
1. While engine is running (key in ignition switch), apply the brakes and hold the pedal down.
2. Move gearshift lever to neutral.
3. Apply parking brake.
4. Send the start command (Model 801 & 2101 - Model 903 ).
5. Remove key from ignition (the system keeps the engine running).
6. Exit the vehicle.
7. Using the remote, send the STOP command. The system will stop the engine and parking lights will blink once
to confirm that the sequence is valid (vehicle is ready for a remote start command).

While in park,the car will not start.If I place the car in neutral,the car will start every time.Why is that.

There is a switch that only allows your car to start in park or neutral. It must just be worn out in park. It is perfectly fine to start it in neutral. Just keep your foot on the brake. My buddy did that in his monte carlo for 10 years.

Situation: My battery has died. I would like to place my car in Neutral so that I can have another car give me a jump. Problem: I cannot place my car in neutral because my car will not allow me to...

You need a portable jump starter, may be a friend has one, or swap batteries with another car that has a battery similar to yours (I.E. top vs Side posts and size) a size that will fit same or a little smaller OK and polarity same so you don't cross connect or reverse the polarity remember the + red post goes to red+ and the - black goes to black- post. Then start move car to roomier area then swap battery back then jump start to get it home. and remember to charge your battery with a charger driving does not fully charge and a low battrey may start your car but it makes the starter get hotter from pulling higher amps for a longer time.

My engine wont start but when i jiggle the shifter in park there is a certain spot it does start

There is a switch in the shifter called the neutral safety switch. This keeps the car from being started except when it is in park or neutral. Yours is going bad. You might try starting in neutral instead of park if that works better. This will get worse until it fails completely.

The cooling fan keeps running even when the car is shut off. It keeps running until the battery gives out.

The fan is suppose to run until engine cools off. If battery drains before cooling down a good place to start is a weak battrey
