My 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee wont start sometimes, but if I put it in neutral then try to start it..It starts .. What is the problem with my baby.......


Test/Service/Replace

The circuit on newer cars with automatic transmissions has a neutral safety, or neutral start switch installed between the ignition switch and the starter. The ignition switch cannot operate the starter motor unless the transmission is in park or neutral.
Late model vehicles with manual transmissions have a starter/clutch interlock switch that requires the clutch to be depressed to the floor.
Neutral Safety Switch
Normal operations of a neutral safety switch provides a quick check for the adjustment of the gear selector linkage.
  • To do this, move the selector slowly until it clicks into the PARK position.
  • Turn the ignition key to the START position.
  • If the starter operates, the PARK position is correct.
  • After checking the PARK position, move the lever slowly toward the NEUTRAL position until the lever drops at the end of the NEUTRAL stop in the selector gate.
  • If the starter also operates at this point, the gearshift linkage is properly adjusted.
  • This quick test also tests the adjustment of the neutral safety switch.
  • If the engine does not start in either or both of these positions, the neutral safety switch or the gear selector linkage needs adjustment or repair.

CAUTION
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.

Is it an automatic transmission?
Have you try to start the Wrangler in Neutral.
On automatic transmission there is a neural safety switch.
When it's not send the correct gate position signal (P R N D... ) to the ECU not energize import relay like ASD.
Check for loose linkage to the transmission. + lube linkage with white Lithium grease spray.
Check for loose wiring to the neutral safety switch.

2002 Jeep Liberty 3.7 automatic wont turn the starter over. LIghts good. Battery good. Could it be the starter, cables to the starter, neutral safety switch?


have same problem, ratan9 solution is pretty junk and I dont know why waste time posting it. After talking to local shop, to "test" the neutral safety switch, try to start in neutral, try to move shifter "farther" into park and turn key, listen to any clicks possible. If moving to neutral starts it you've got a bad switch. All the searching i've done it's either the safety switch, the ignition switch or a short in the harness somewhere

94 jeep yj 4.0l starts in gear


It should have a safety interlock switch on the clutch to prevent it from cranking with the clutch not depressed. Do a search on the Internet for 94 jeep clutch pedal safety switch. If its an automatic it should have a switch on the transmission linkage to prevent starts out of park.

2.5 jeep wangler 1999 wont start .starter checks out ok


Could be a bad connection between the battery and starter. Starter solenoid, or neutral safety switch if it is standard transmission.
Check for power at the solenoid.

2002 jeep wrangler 4.0 auto will not start, maybe shift sensor??


Neutral safety switch is either bad or out of adjustment. On stickshift cars, usually found above clutch pedal. On automatics, aw4 trans is on passenger side of trans, On 727 Chrysler trans it's on the top left rear edge of trans casting just above the pan.

Jeep 2006 wrangler x series


yes that fuse is intended to bypass the clutch safety switch indefinitely.If theres a good fuse in there it will bypass and not cause any problem whatsoever..........(you probably already know this ****........)just make sure the transmission is in neutral or you have the clutch pressed down so the jeep doesnt lurch when you turn the key
