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.

Removing the Manual Lever Position (MLP) sensor

As of 1994, the neutral safety switch is referred to as a Manual Lever Position Sensor (MLP).
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
  3. Disengage the harness connector from the MLP sensor.
  4. Remove the 2 sensor attaching bolts and remove the sensor.
To install:
  1. Install the MLP sensor and install retaining bolts. Do not tighten, the sensor requires adjustment.
  2. Adjust the MLP sensor then tighten attaching screws to 80-100 inch lbs. (9-11 Nm).
  3. Remove the jackstands and lower the vehicle.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.


ADJUSTMENT

C6 Transmission
  1. Hold the steering column transmission selector lever against the Neutral stop.
  2. Move the sliding block assembly on the neutral switch to the Neutral position and insert a 0.091 in. (2.3mm) gauge pin in the alignment hole on the terminal side of the switch.
  3. Move the switch assembly housing so that the sliding block contacts the actuating pin lever. Secure the switch to the outer tube of the steering column and remove the gauge pin.
  4. Check the operation of the switch. The engine should only start in Neutral and Park .

4R70W Transmission

Adjusting the MLP sensor

Park is the last detent when the manual control lever is full forward. Return 2 detents toward the output shaft for Neutral.
  1. Position the manual control lever in Neutral .

  3. Align all 3 slots on the MLP sensor with 3 tabs on the tool.
  4. Tighten the attaching screws to 80-100 inch lbs. (9-11 Nm).

I hope help you. Good luck (rated this help).

2004 Ford Explorer sportrac the problem is that when I put it in park it sometimes doesn't work is that the neutral safety switch


Depends on what you mean by doesn't work. If you mean it doesn't go into park then no. If you mean it won't start the next time unless you jiggle the shift handle or put it in neutral, then yes, replace safety switch.

How do I adjust the neutral safety switch on a 1992 ford explorer lt automatic 2wd w/a 4.0L engine


There is a small amount of adjustment by loosening the screws and turning the switch a bit. If that doesn't work then the contacts in the switch are burned and needs to be replaced.

Will not crank with key but can get starter to hit by crossing it over but will not start


Lots of possibilities. Key switch, security system, solenoid (if that model has a separate solenoid) would top the list of likely suspects.
