SOURCE: what wires do I need

The wires on the Transmission Range Sensor that control the ability to crank the starter are the BLACK/GREEN wire at Pin 6 and the wire at Pin 10 which is either BLACK/GREEN or BLACK WHITE depending on your model. (build - date and transmission type)

With all that said, I think it only fair to warn you that bypassing these wires will set codes in your Engine Control Module. It is not going to like it if there is power at pin 10 with the transmission in reverse or any of the forward gears. This may also cause your transmission to not shift properly because the ECM will not know for sure what gear you are in.

SOURCE: plzzz tell me how to bypass the neutral safety

You can bypass the switch; it's just not recommended.
If you get stuck somewhere, because of this NSS Failure, (make sure the transmission is in park) you can place the key in the crank position, and use a small piece of wire to bypass the starter relay under the hood. It will get you home.
I would NOT recommend this as a daily occurrence; but, if you are stuck and need to get home - it will work.

How do I troubleshoot a neutral safety switch on a 2000 Ford Econoline 150 van?


Try starting car in drive - it should not crank. Now put car in neutral and try to start -if it starts you know the switch is working. Conversely, if the car jerks in any gear when you attempt to start, the switch is fubar.

What are the wire colors of the neutral safety switch on a 2000 Caravan 3.0 liter with a 4-speed automatic transmission.


Brown wire with yellow tracer shows to be wire color. You can always jump the starter to get it to crank, but, that doesn't mean it will start. In the past I have been lucky, different vehicle, I put the key in on position, jumped the starter relay, the vehicle started, I managed to get it home.
When testing, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set. There are safety issues, safety is your responsibility. You don't want the vehicle to move when your working on it.
You realize if you bypass anything, it may start in any gear, if it does it will run over you or one of the kids, anything that gets in the way. Again, safety for everybody is your responsibility.

Is there anyway you can bypass the neutral safety switch?


there is you have to locate it depending on it being standard or automatic a neutral safety switch is a switch the creates a loop when in park or neutral (might be found on shifter or trans side) on standards they are usually on the clutch pedal engine won't crank until either in park or neutral or when clutch pedal is depressed find switch and unplug it and jump wires bypassing switch keeping the circuit closed and engine should crank over while in gear with no clutch or in any gear p r n d 1 2 ect wouldn't recommend doing this however not sure why you looking to bypass this switch but can be dangerous especially in standard vehicles reaching into the vehicle to start it forgetting its in gear it could start a take off or crank and not start but lurching forward or backward

No crank no start replace d starter and still same check relay its fine and have power to the starter


Check the neutral safety switch. Try jiggling the shifter or starting in neutral.

I don't know the make or model, but you can find a wiring diagram for the starting system online. There are ways to bypass the neutral safety switch to be sure it's the problem, but be careful if you do. The car can jump or even start in gear. Keep your foot on the brake when trying to start.

Also check if you have a security system and reset or bypass.

I have a chevy 305 with an older transmission with no neutral safety. The starter that i have has 3 prongs the only way to have the system work is to short the starter and it will start the engine is there...


The neutral safety switch is on the transmission not the starter. If you suspect it's not working, simply unplug it. Just REMEMBER that the truck will now start in ANY gear not just park or neutral. Hope this helps.

I have a 1995 Buick Riviera with a 3.8 supercharged V6. Vin# 1. It's a series 1 L67. I am having a problem with the security on this car. When I put the key in and try to start it the security light comes...


Next time it happen.

Put your foot on the brake,shift the gear selector to neutral "N" and start the car.

There is a switch call neutral safety switch and it can be intermittent.

If you can start the car in "N" and not in "P" then neutral safety switch is at fault.

Replace it as soon as possible to prevent damage to the wiring and transmission computer.

=====
Also check for the key that your are using daily.

The resistor dot contact can be worn out.

Try the spare key and see is the problem follow,

Google GM VATS BYPASS is your are dead set on bypassing this setup.

Transmission


Sounds like the neutral safety switch is faulty. The engine should not start with the trans. in gear. It seems as though the neutral switch is not disengaging when the engine is running and then put in gear.

In addition, this could be a module fault. I would disconnect the battery for a few hours to reset the module memories. Reconnect and start the car and see if it still occurs. If so, you need to see if you can bypass the neutral switch temporarily and see if it allows you to go into gear. Otherwise, you need to plug in a diagnostic tool and see what error codes, if any, are being displayed. It doesn't sound like a shift solenoid issue, it sounds as though the neutral switch is faulty.

good luck.
