Starter stays engaged park or nuetral


Powssible that there is always power to the inhibitor switch. It is the switch that only allows current to flow thru it when in park or neutral. Could be power is always present at the switch when it is in park or neutral. Check the ignition switch first and see if it is powering the start circuit all the time.

What is a neutral safety switch?


The Neutral Safety switch monitors the position of your gear selector lever and either interrupts or allows the starting circuit in your car or truck to do its job. On newer vehicles it may also monitor the position of the brake pedal to make sure that the vehicle is in park or neutral AND that your foot is on the brake.

If your vehicle is equipped with a neutral safety switch, it should NOT start UNLESS the transmission is in Neutral or Park. On the other hand your vehicle SHOULD start when it is in Neutral or Park. If your car will start in Neutral but not in Park, you have a bad switch. Also, if your car or truck will only start by turning the key to the start position and wiggling the gear selector lever, your neutral safty switch is in need of replacement.

The nuetral safety switch is usually found near the gear shifter. If your car has the gear shift on the column, then the neutral safety switch is usully mounted on the steering column near the brake pedal. On floor mount or console mount vehicles you will find the nuetral safety switch mounted near or on the shifter mechanism.

My car will not start unless I push the shifter allt he way up into PARK


sounds to me like you need to have shifter cable or park neutral position switch adjusted. The car is thinking that you are in "reverse" and it will not start. When you push the shifter forward it turns off the signal telling the car that it is in reverse and it will start, because you are putting pressure on it making it think that it is in "park"

you need to either replace the neutral safety switch, or it may just be out of adjustment, let me know what kind of truck ( year, make, model ) and i can look up the adjustment and location of the switch.

Won't start, turnover, nothing. can shift between park and neutral and car will start.


It sounds like your transmission range sensor. It tells your transmission what gear your in and what gears to switch to when driving. It is reading that your not in park unless you move your shifter. You need to have it adjusted or replaced. If you want to take a look at it, it is located on the side of the transmission with a cable running to it. Just a little box like thing.

Try to start vehicle in park, new battery,alternator,serpentinebelt,dash signals come on,nothing. Try to start in neutral, ok. Try again inpark, nothing, then neutral, nothing? Park safty switch, or...


Try holding the key in the crcnk position while you slowly move the shift lever from park to nuetral and back to park. If at any point the vehicle tries to start while you are doing this than its the nuetral safety switch. From your description it sounds like the nuetral safety is the problem.

Trying to locate the nuetral safety switch in 1990 GMC 1/2 ton


The back-up light switch is incorporated into the neutral/park safety switch. The neutral safety switch on 1988-94 models is mounted in the steering column.

Neutral Start/Back-Up Switch
The procedure is for switches that are mounted on the transmission only.
This adjustment is performed with the switch removed from the vehicle. Neutral position tool J 41364-A or its equivalent is required for this procedure.
  1. Position tool J 41364-A or its equivalent onto the park/neutral switch. make sure that the slots on the switch are lined up with the lower tabs on the tool.
  2. Rotate the tool until the upper locator pin on the tool is lined with the slot on the top of the switch.
Do not remove the tool from the switch.
  1. Install the switch and remove the tool.

Hope this helped (remember rated this post).
