Question about 1993 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

Won't start! Doesn't seem to register it's in PARK or Neutral.

Running great then...  Backed up to unload ....  Won't start.  Out of frustration, I coasted it down the hill in my driveway and slammed into park.  It started up and ran fine!  Shut it off, same symptoms.  Fuses seem okay.  Don't know about relays.  Pulled off cover to shifter.  Everything seems to be working well.  Is there any safety switches?   I just don't want to spend hundreds going to a garage. Any feedback would be great.

No power


There is a park/neutral switch by the transmission. Make sure the connector is connected otherwise your car won't start. This switch only allows you to start in park or neutral. If not connected the car thinks you are in some other gear trying to start.

The parking light estay in reverse ,when is on parking and dont start the engine


Your shift indicator is out of alignment or your shift linkage is out of adjustment. If you have the shift lever all the way up and are sure it has locked into park try shifting to Neutral and see if you can start it in neutral. If it starts this is a simple adjustment. if it doesn't you will need to replace the neutral safety switch or have the TCM repaired at a transmission shop.

Put a new engine in a 1998 isuzu rodeo now it won't start. I thought it was the neutral safety switch because the R was on the dash and it was in park


This could be the problem. If your dash indicator is showing reverse but the transmission is in park it could be the safety switch. I'm not talking about the safety switch in the transmission though. In automatics they put a second switch to kill the starter from engaging. You need to adjust the linkage. If your shifter isn't actually on the column but the indicators are there is a cable that attaches the floor shift to the column and that is adjustable. Put the Floor shifter in Park and turn the column section nearest the dash by hand until you find park. Then adjust the cable length as needed. If all you have is the column shift it is still a cable adjustment. Set the emergency brake, drop the shifter to low 1 and adjust the cable linkage by loosening it on the transmission and manually move it all the way to low 1 then tighten it down then move the shifter to park and repeat teh adjustment process to verify that it is properly aligned. Lock the linkage back down and see if the vehicle will start, if it doesn't move the shifter to neutral and try to start the vehicle if the vehicle starts then check the column shift safety switch at the park position to make sure it is still in place and working. Typically, if the vehicle won't start in Park or Neutral it is more likely to be the Transmission neutral safety switch.

I have a 2008 dodge charger se. I try to start it and it wont start in park. I place it in neutral and it takes a few times to finally get it to crank. I replace the solenoid relay already and reset the...


The Neutral safety switch in the Transmission is the problem. If it doesn't send the signal to the computer when it is in park it won't crank over. Replace the Neutral safety switch and the problem should be resolved. Make sure you check the linkage for proper adjustment if you have a center console shift. That doesn't actually connect directly to the transmission except through a linkage and it may show to be in park but not actually be fully engaging in park. Sometimes you can turn the lower part of the steering column by hand to get it to lock fully in park if this is the case with your situation then for sure it is the linkage being out of adjustment.
