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.

  3. Disengage the harness connector from the MLP sensor.
  4. Remove the 2 sensor attaching bolts and remove the sensor.
To install:

ADJUSTMENT

C6 Transmission

  2. Move the sliding block assembly on the neutral switch to the Neutral position and insert a 0.091 in. (2.3mm) gauge pin in the alignment hole on the terminal side of the switch.
  3. Move the switch assembly housing so that the sliding block contacts the actuating pin lever. Secure the switch to the outer tube of the steering column and remove the gauge pin.
  4. Check the operation of the switch. The engine should only start in Neutral and Park .

Maybe a bad Neutral Safety Switch.
  • Neutral safety switch sends a signal to the on-board computer to allow the engine to start and to engage the transmission
  • When not replaced, vehicle may experience no start and/or transmission will not shift out of park.Here's a link to what it look's like.

2001 CHEVY BLAZER starts but not able to shift out of PARK. if i start in NEUTRAL it is able to shift, WHY IS THIS?


Check the park neutral safety switch. It is a black box located on the side of the transmission. You will want to heat up the switch where the electrical connectors go in with a heat gun, or you will break the switch or connectors.
