98 Chrysler Sebring where is the neutral safety switch located

Honestly I work on so many different vehicles and dont know specific location. It is only one of 3 locations. I assume the transmission is automatic so that rules out the nuetral safety switch on the pedal assembly. So that leaves automatic, which can be located on the parking pawl portion of the transmission. It is built into the selector switch that tells you what gear you are in. Or the nuetral start safety switch can be located on the shifter inside the car. Hope this helps.

I have a 1998 chevy cavalier automatic, it would'nt start this morning in park and went out later and tried it in neutral and it started right up. has never did that before, what may have caused that?

If it will crank and start when in nuetral but won't crank over at all when in park then you may have a failing Park/Nuetral safety switch. This switch goes by a variety of names such as transmission range switch, PRNDL switch, etc., and when they begin to fail they can produce the symptoms you are having. There also could be a transmission shift linkage problem that is preventing the switch from fully reaching the "park" position but that is quite rare.

Where is the nuetral safety switch located at on a plymouth neon 200?

it is on the transmission, assuming your vehicle has an automatic transmission. on the top you should see a large cable attached to a lever, and under the lever is the neutral safety switch.

Starting issue (automatic transmission)

Check the adjustment on the nuetral safety switch on the transmission, if that doesn't fix the issue replace the neutral safety switch.
