Yes, that was too much. The neutral safety switch costs around $70 (if I remembered right). I bought it from my Mazda dealer and asked them for a diagram to locate it. In most cases, my Mazda dealer has been helpful in provide diagrams for this minivan. The switch is located underneath the battery (you'll have to remove it) on the transmission. Make sure it is aligned right when you replace the switch; otherwise it won't find neutral, and you'll have to use the bypass switch on top of the steering column to start you engine.

I have a 1998 mazda MPV Van. It wont come out of park. What must I do to get it in drive? Starts fine but lever is being held . Thanks so much! Keith


it may have a brake safety switch that is required to operate before the gear lever is released
put your foot on the brake to move the selector lever and if that doesn't work check the circuit for fuses or switch problems

Parking switch damaged. The two starting positions P and N both have a separate safety switch which allows starter motor to crank only in these two positions.
Replace the "Parking Starting switch".

Mazda 2000 mpv will not start in park but will start in neutral why?


The most likely cause is a bad neutral safety switch. It should be on top of the transmission. Follow the shifter cable through the firewall and the switch will be near the end of the cable
