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.

Where is neutral switch on a 92 dodge caravan


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.

Where is the neutral safety switch on my 2004 suburban ?


Its possible that your have some "no start" condition or intermittent problem about this; to test it, shift the Trans into Neutral, if the engine starts in Neutral, the problem is the Neutral Safety Switch. If the engine still will not start then the problem will be in the Ignition Switch.

The heat of the engine is usually what does in the starter motor. The Neutral Safety Switch is not common at all. It is fairly easy to remove, it is bolted to the drivers side of the transmission where the shift cable attaches. The problem you run into when replacing the Neutral Safety Switch is that the connectors are glued into the switch and will not come out. This will require replacement of the connectors if you replace the switch.

Hope helps (remember to rating this answer and leave a testimonial comment). Thak you for using Fixya.

My 1992 Chevy 1500 truck revers lights stopped working. The fuse is fine and all other lights work.


If the fuse is good and the reverse lights are good, I would suspect your problem will be the reverse light switch itself. I believe yours is located on the side of the transmission where your linkage connects, if you have an automatic transmission.
If you have a manual transmission , you'll probably have to contact the local automotive parts store and ask them to tell you where it's located.
