Automatic or stick? makes a difference, if it's a stick it's on the chutch pedal if it's an automatic it's on the transmisson where the linkage hooks up to the shifter, remove the linkage by removing the nut that hold the shifter on then remove the screws that hold the safety netural backup light switch on be sure you have the E brake on before removing and chalk the wheels remove the switch and go to the parts store and buy a new switch and replace you will have to disconnect the wire harness connted to the switch as well it is a short wire with 4 wire or sometimes 5 on it when installing the new switch be sure to move the new switch to the forward postion so that it set on the can correctly you can turn the inside ring with your fingers to move it once it is lined up replace hold down screws and replace linkage nut.
