Not exactly.
The neutral safety switch looks like it bolts to the transmission where the shift rod enters. You may be moving the shift rod on the trans and making the switch work.
It may crank in neutral better until you get the problem fixed.

I have a 1998 GMC Jimmy I have been working on. All the sudden it won't shift out of gear, when I tried to start it all it does is make a quick clicking sound. Is the battery dead or what?


I am assuming you have a console shifter. If so, the shift linkage is jammed keeping it from going into park (which is where it has to be to start the truck). When in park and the brake pedal is depressed, the shifter is interlocked with the brake pedal via a switch/relay connected to the shifter with a linkage. Check the linkage to the shifter - it may be jamming the shifter.

Why do i have to put my car in neutural to start it


Simple the park start switch isn't functioning. If I remember correctly that is located in the center shifter console. Try pressing the shifter further toward the park setting. If it works now you may wish to adjust the shifter cable in the console. Otherwise take an allen wrench and loosen the retainer screw on the shifter and pull it off. Now remove the shroud to the console. With the console cover off you may be able to see the problem, but if everything stilll looks perfect and it still doesn't work replace the switch.

Will not start


Temporary fix : Remove trim ring around shifter from console
You will find a slot in the front corner that was covered by the
trim ring. Push your ign. key down in the slot at the same time
move the shifter to " N " position and it should start. May have
to wiggle shifter a little with key in start position. You will still
need to find and fix the problem but will be able to drive until
resolved.

Car will not start. I wiggled the shifter around


You may have gotten a bad switch otherwise just check to make sure it is adjusted properley. If you loosen the bolts there is about a half inch of adjustment on those. The turn signal is a ground issue most likely. You gotta chase down the wires to figure that one out. It may also be a faulty turn signal switch but not very likely

Sometimes the ignition doesnt turn over but when the transmission button on center console is wiggled, it fixes the problem.


There is a switch in your shifter that keeps you from starting the car except in neutral or park. It is called the neutral safety switch and yours is going bad. Try shifting into neutral and starting in that position. This will slowly get worse.

1995 cherokee 4wd trouble starting must move gear shifter several times before it will start


try starting it in nuetral. if it starts everytime then the shifting switch is going out. If nothing changes then maybe the ignition switch is going bad and just by chance it starts by wiggling the shifter.
If this is a manual trans maybe the nuetral safety switch on the clutch pedal is going out.
