Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I'm trying to fix my neutral safety switch on my own and I was hoping someone could give me the step by step process of taking my jeep apart and reassembling.

OK then the switch is part of the gear selector switch on the side of the trans where the shift linkage hooks up. here is a picture and part number.

You can find switch on right side of the transmission, opposite where the linkage goes in on the drivers side The harness connector is near the dipstic fill tube top. They are usually stuck on the shaft so you will need lots of wd40 a little gentle prying and some patience to remove it. You can replace with one from a scrapyard or get a new one (about $200 new) You can take them apart and clean contacts, but be very careful not to loose or mix up internal contacts (they will fall out if you are not careful) When re-installing I usually adjust start positon in neutral ,partially lock switch down and re - check reverse & park positions, then fully tighten. It's plastic so don't "animal" on it tightening...use lock tab to keep from backing off.

The switch is on the transmission..It is usually a dealer item but you can get one from Rockauto.com for about 1/4 of what the dealers charge.

SOURCE: neutral safety switch
I would recommend going to the autozone.com website and registering the vehicle. It doesn't cost anything and will give you access to an online repair manual for the vehicle. The steps for replacing the neutral safety switch can be found there. (I checked). Hope this helped and best wishes.

Since you must work under the vehicle to adjust most shift linkages make sure you properly raise and support the vehicle before working under it. Also, wear safety glasses or goggles while working under the vehicle.
A voltmeter can be used to check the switch for voltage when the ignition key is turned to the START position with the shift lever in PARK or NEUTRAL. If there is no voltage, the switch should be adjusted or replaced.
