SOURCE: where is neutral safety switch 95 jeep cherokee

Your switch is on the passenger side of the transmission opposite where the shift linkage goes in on the drivers side.It takes a bit of careful prying and wiggling and some solvent to get most to come off. after removing the hardware that holds it on. The switch goes for about $200 but can be taken apart and cleaned...unless the contacts are really burned it will generally work after that. make sure that you keep it flat when taking it apart because stuff inside can fall out easily. Put dielectric grease in there before closing it up.Can't help with schematic...the ones I have I wouldn't wish on anyone. (terrible)

SOURCE: 95 jeep cherokee country 6 cyl auto. wont crank all the time

Sounds like a bad starter, why did you replace the crank position sensor? If the engine will not turn over at all and it sparks with trying to jump the solenoid with a screw driver it seem as though the starter is bad. First you solve the solenoid problem when you jumped the solenoid with a screw driver sending fire to the starter. Check the cable connections to the starter if they are good replace the starter this should fix your problem.

SOURCE: plzzz tell me how to bypass the neutral safety

You can bypass the switch; it's just not recommended.
If you get stuck somewhere, because of this NSS Failure, (make sure the transmission is in park) you can place the key in the crank position, and use a small piece of wire to bypass the starter relay under the hood. It will get you home.
I would NOT recommend this as a daily occurrence; but, if you are stuck and need to get home - it will work.

Shifter button stuck

Please explain about the shifter button. It is I believe the root cause of the probems you have, use any sharp object and try to pry it up and then spray a tiny bit of WD40 around the button.

1999 Lincoln continental car wont move in gear

1,.Make sure your key is inserted all the way into your ignition switch. It if is not, you will not be able to move the shifter. Make sure it is all the way in by turning it to the "Run" position and waiting for the engine to engage.
2. Press the brake pedal after you start your car and before you try to move your shifter. Most cars do not allow you to move the shifter if you are not pressing the brake pedal.
3. Clean the panels around the shifter. Often these can accumulate dirt or sticky debris that can prevent you from shifting into gear.
4. Remove the console cover over the shifter by unscrewing the corners and popping it off. You can then make sure there is nothing underneath preventing you from shifting.
5. Press the override button at the base of the shifter if it is not working properly.

Key wont turn over in my 1999 jeep cherokee sport seems like it is locked. The lights come on and dinging at the door.

If the key is seemingly mysteriously prevented from being twisted to the "Start" position in the ignition, it is probably due to the transmission not being fully in "Park" (or in neutral or clutch fully depressed for a standard transmission).

The ignition switch is will move to start or not turn the starter when it is not in the correct position. Pull the shifter fully into the Park position (or in the case of a standard transmission - out of gear & press the clutch to the floor). It may be difficult to do this if you are parked on a hill or if there is some other issue with the linkage between the shifter and transmission. In any case, the shifter should click into position when fully in park. If the car has a lot of miles on it - the switch and linkage may be worn - and you'll have to "jiggle" the shifter back and forth to find the spot that allows the starter to turn.

It may also be a dead battery. The lights and chime require significantly less power than starting the engine does. Turn on the high beam headlights, air conditioner and set the blower fan to high. Then tap the horn. If your car can't do all this at once - the battery could be ready for replacement. Try to get a booster or jump start.

I hope this helps - good luck!

1993 jeep gc/ key turns but doesnt start, i have power on the dash but it just wont this the ignition switch or the cylinder lock?

Few thing there:
- Battery charge
- Ignition switch go to bad
- Starter go to bad
- Neutral safety switch; confirm that shifter is in P position, if not adjust this device (drivers side, gear box, under vehicle).
- Antitheft system activated; if recently tha batteri was disconnected, this is armed.

Hope helps.

Wrangler will not go into gear when the jeep is off

if transmission was good when engine is off you should be able to go through the gears. can also be stuck in between gears which you can fix by replacing worn shifter.
