    yes. sometimes I have to press the brake pedal all the way down. Sometimes I pump it lik three to four times, and that's the only way I could get it into gear.

That is not right. Do you have any gears, can you shift it and have any motion?

My 07 Pacifica will start but won't move out of park. Just clicks. Was told it may be the neutral safety switch?


No it's not the park neutral safety switch . It's the shift interlock system or what ever Chrysler calls it . It's a safety feature that won't let the transmission shift into gear unless you have your foot on the brake pedal .
What just clicks - explain ?

Why does my 1993 chevy 350 idle so low?


First clean the idle air control valve with a non-chlronated brake cleaner or replace it with a new one.If that did'nt help check your fuel pressure it should be 9-13 psi with the engine running anything less you will need to replace the fuel pump and fuel filter.

Where is the neutral safety switch on my 2004 suburban ?


Its possible that your have some "no start" condition or intermittent problem about this; to test it, shift the Trans into Neutral, if the engine starts in Neutral, the problem is the Neutral Safety Switch. If the engine still will not start then the problem will be in the Ignition Switch.

The heat of the engine is usually what does in the starter motor. The Neutral Safety Switch is not common at all. It is fairly easy to remove, it is bolted to the drivers side of the transmission where the shift cable attaches. The problem you run into when replacing the Neutral Safety Switch is that the connectors are glued into the switch and will not come out. This will require replacement of the connectors if you replace the switch.

Hope helps (remember to rating this answer and leave a testimonial comment). Thak you for using Fixya.

Engine will not turn over or start when in park with key on.


You linkage is working properly it sounds like, especially if the indicator for "D, R, N", etc are lining up. However the linkage or the neutral safety switch may need to be adjusted. More than likely, it's your neutral safety switch.

The brake pedal release has nothing to do with the neutral safety switch when switching gears.

The brake pedal release is just a safety to prevent you from pushing the gear shifter accidentally. Actually, you should be able to start the truck without holding the brakes.

If the neutral safety switch is bad or misaligned, it'll do exactly what you're describing. If pulling it down in neutral starts the truck, then that's a sure indicator.
