I need to replace the NSS on a 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport. It's a 4.0L 6cyl (straight line). Where is the NSS located on the vehicle?


?What do you mean NSS? Neutral Safety Switch? NSS is not an Abbreviation that I have ever heard of in 40 years. If you are talking about a Neutral Safety switch it is located in the transmission and would keep you from starting the vehicle unless it is in park or Neutral. Assuming you are talking about this and it's not the more common problem in the vehicles of the Linkage being out of adjustment it is located inside the transmission and can actually be replaced without any special tools or dropping the transmission in most cases.

Back up lights don't work and i already changed the light bulbs and the fuses are all fine


If you haven't checked for power going into the socket, or if the ground is good. I'd say you have a faulty neutral safety switch on the transmission. When you shift the gears it keeps the vehicle from starting unless it's in neutral or park. It also senses when you are in reverse and sends power to the reverse lights turning them on.

1998 jeep cherokee 4.0 it cranks but does not start tride puting gas or starter fluid and still it doesnt start I think Im not getting any spark


Your dealership can read the codes entered into your car's computer every time it malfunctions. Same problem as yours, however, also gets worse, back up lights won't work, sticks in park (in the gas stationing) (very embarrassing), will only run with foot on gas, etc. It was the "neutral safety switch". $500 fix but runs and starts perfectly all the time.

HOW TO SYNCHRONIZE BACKUP LIGHTS WITH REVERSE GEAR ON 1996 JEEP C


The neutral safety switch can be adjusted to make this work. (loosen it and turn , then lock it down. This changes neutral start position as well so make sure both work when you're finished! Switch is on right side of trans. Switch is about $220 so don't break it!

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport Ignition Lights Come on but wont crank


Try putting the car in neutral and starting. If its a manual trans it might be the clutch pedal safety switch or it may be something as simple as a loose battery connection.
