It is in side the trans on top of the valve body. Why do you think you need to replace it?

It is under the battery tray. Here is where it is and how to get to it.
Here is another procedural tutorial on how to remove and replace it.
Assuming that this is an automatic, the NSS is a common problem. A common, cheap and easy ten minute bypass method has been developed to get around the problem or at the least to use to confirm the diagnosis of a failed switch.

SOURCE: How to replace a neutral safety switch

The switch should be on the drivers side of the tranny where the shift linkage attaches to it. You will need a 13mm socket and a 15 mm socket . You will also need a heat gun , the electrical plug is glued into the connectors and must be warmed up to be removed . these rarly go bad but they do get out of adjustment / or when removing pan techs are ad to bend the shift cable bracket and get them out of adjustment . Loosen the two 13mm bolts and move it slightly in both directions and see if this fixs you problem before you change it out.

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.

How do you replace the neutral safety switch on a 1991 ford f150 six cylinder lariat


The neutral safety switch is located on the transmission shift lever. Its held onto the transmission case by 2 bolts in slotted holes. You will need to remove the kickdown lever. The switch will slip off the shift lever with just a little pry if dirty. Replace the switch while the transmission is in neutral. There is a small hole in the side of the switch to stick a small pin or awl into to locate the neutral position of the switch. I would try to adjust the old switch before replacing it.

Test/Service/Replace Neutral Safety Switch
Most neutral safety switches are combinations of a neutral safety switch and a backup lamp switch. Others have separate units for these two distinct functions. When the reverse light switch is not part of the neutral safety switch, it seldom needs adjustment, as it is directly activated by the transmission or the gear selector linkage.
f_ttat_t3.20.jpg Typical location of a neutral safety switch on a transaxle. Reprinted with permission of Ford Motor Company. A neutral safety switch allows current to pass from the starter switch to the starter when the lever is placed in the P or N position. Some neutral safety switches are nonadjustable. If these prevent starting in the P or N position and the gear selector linkage is correctly adjusted, they should be replaced.
To adjust a typical neutral safety switch:
  • Place the shift lever in neutral.
  • Loosen the attaching bolts for the switch.
  • Using the angling pin, move the switch until the pin falls into the hole in its rotor.
  • Tighten the attaching bolts.
  • Recheck the switch for continuity. If no voltage is present, replace the switch.
  • The switch sometimes controls the operation of the back-up lights also. With the engine off and the key on, put the selector in reverse position. Check the back-up lights to see that they are on. Then, check in the drive position to see that they are out.

Need location of neutral safty switch on my 1990 cadilac broughm 350 engin e


The neutral safety switch is located on the top and toward the base of the steering column almost to the floorboard.

To remove or install the neutral safety switch be sure to place the shifter in the neutral position, then dis-connect the wire connector at the neutral safety switch, then remove the securing screws and then remove the neutral safety switch.

Install the new neutral safety switch and do not over-tighten the securing screws, then remove the alignment pin and re-connect the wire connector to the neutral safety switch. (be sure not to remove the alignment pin until the neutral safety switch has been installed)

Check to be certain that the vehicle only starts in "Park" or "Neutral". Here is an image to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

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.
