Question about Cars & Trucks
Ihave a 1999 Grand AM GT with the 3.4L motor. I have an intermittant starting problem. The GM dealer toldme it was the actual ignition switch and replaced it. ($500.00) i cstill have the problem. What else can I do? Ray
I would first want a refund from that dealer.
Yes it could be the neutral safety switch. You could try cranking it in neutral, or bypass that switch. Could also be something with the anti-theft system if the security light is flashing.

this is part of the gear position switch on top of the trans where the shift linkage connects, it is mounted over the selector post that sticks out of the trans. Here is a picture.

The switch is on the transmission..It is usually a dealer item but you can get one from Rockauto.com for about 1/4 of what the dealers charge.

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.
