Take it to a shop where they can put it on a lift - the park/neutral switch is located on the left side of the transmission. You could crawl under the car, disconnect the wiring connector, remove the old switch, and reverse the process for the new one...but it's a tight squeeze under there unless you put the car on ramps or jackstands.

SOURCE: neutral safety switch

It is located on the side of the transmission, follow the shift cable down to it you will recognize it because it has a electrical wire comming off it and either a shift lever or shift cable going to it.

How do i test a 1996 sunfire starter switch?


Problem could be in the neutral safety switch.
The small wire on the starter solenoid gets power from the key switch, but it goes thru the neutral safety switch to prevent you from cranking the engine in gear.

1998 Toyota Corolla, automatic. I have trouble starting my car. When the key is engaged to the start position sometimes I just get a click. I have checked the battery w/ a hydrometer and have cleaned...


  1. I tried to find a
    Toyota Corolla Wiring Diagram 1998 |
    If you go to your library you can look for free. Just not sure of location of of neutral safety switch for your year of car. In the back of motor manual is wire diagrams you will find switch there. Also GEO Prism is the same car.
  2. The last time I worked on a Prism it was a 1997 I found a bad wire connection at the shifter. Took 20 minutes to do repair and no parts.
  3. So I would check the switch in your console. Sometime they stick or a wire comes loose. Sometimes a little WD-40 shot to the switch helps.

2000 Pontiac Sunfire wont start


Its likely that you have either a bad ignition switch or a bad neutral safety switch (if stickshift, clutch switch) Try starting in neutral...if it starts, change neutral switch (jump across clutch switch, check starting in neutral with your foot on the brake) Ignition switch is on top of steering column under dash.
