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 just need to know where is the neutral safety switch located on the 1998 Lincoln Town Car. I was told that it is located on the alternator, but where?


if you are referring to the switch that won't let you start the engine if the shifter isn't in NEUTRAL or PARK it is usually at the bottom of the shifter hope this helps.....cheers.

Mazda starter switch in park Car starts in neutral, but won't turn the starter in park. Battery is fine, its a1999 6cyl with automatic. Intermitent problem


You need to replace and adjust your transmission range sensor switch. (also known as neutral safety switch) It is located under the air cleaner ducting on the top of the transmission under the lever where the shifter cable attaches.

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.

Code p0722 speed sensor.... what is the real prob? thank you for your time


Not having more specific info as to the behavior of your vehicle it's hard to say. what the problem might be. Computer codes are only a place to startt.
The P0722 is for Output Speed Sensor 2 Circuit No Signal. This means that the transmission control module is not receiving a signal from the Output Speed Sensor.
I am assuming (based on this information) that your vehicle is front wheel drive and has an automatic transmission. If you have a different powertrain (i.e. quattro all wheel drive or a manual transmission), write back and let me know.
This P0722 is a common fault on front wheel drive automatic transmissions (called a CVT). The bad thing is that the output speed sensors are part of the transmission control module and the only way to repair that is to replace the transmission control module. The module is located inside the transmission. Expect to pay $1000 to $1500 for the module and another $700 to $900 for labor.
There is a possibility it could be the Neutral safety switch. They an get dirty and cause problems so spend a cople of dolars checking this before laying out the bigger bucks.
Testing Neutral Safety Switch

Required Tools:
Test Light/Voltage-meter
Wiring schematic
Neutral safety switch location (component location)

Test Procedure
Locate the neutral safety switch
Disconnect the wiring connector at the switch
Using a test light or volt-meter test for power at the wiring harness with the key in the "engine crank" or the gear shifter in the "reverse" position. (do not start the engine)
If power exists reconnect the neutral safety switch and probe outgoing wires at the connector.
If no outgoing power is present the switch has failed and needs to be replaced.
Tip : If the engine will not crank over with the car in "park" push down the brake pedal and try cranking the engine over with the car in "neutral". What you are doing is bypassing the "park" position in the switch and now are using the little used neutral circuit. If in neutral the engine starts the switch is probably bad.
Tip: Sometimes a neutral safety switch can become misadjusted. This switch adjustment can change due to normal wear of mechanism that controls switch slider.
Other complications can occur if there is a loose connection somewhere in the system. While this condition is not a shorted circuit problem, it is a condition that simply breaks the flow of electricity intermittently. To troubleshoot this problem consult a car repair manual to locate the wiring schematic for your car. Repair the broken or shorted connection as needed and recheck system. Electrical problems are less complicated when the proper information is available.
Hope this helps you

Need location of neutral safty switch on my 1990 cadilac broughm 350 engin e


The neutral safety switch is located on the top and toward the base of the steering column almost to the floorboard.

To remove or install the neutral safety switch be sure to place the shifter in the neutral position, then dis-connect the wire connector at the neutral safety switch, then remove the securing screws and then remove the neutral safety switch.

Install the new neutral safety switch and do not over-tighten the securing screws, then remove the alignment pin and re-connect the wire connector to the neutral safety switch. (be sure not to remove the alignment pin until the neutral safety switch has been installed)

Check to be certain that the vehicle only starts in "Park" or "Neutral". Here is an image to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

Car just started today. When driving to it sounds like thump when changing gears. Talked to transmission guy and he said that Mazda is notorious for faulty park/neutral switch. If we replace that it should...


The park/neutral safety switch has two purposes,
1 not to let the engine start unless it is in park or neutral settings.
2 is when you manually switch gears, it tells the computer and the computer keeps the engine in check until you shift, then the computer compensates for that gear and so on.
I would check motor/ transmission mounts, drive shafts, Suspension bushings,struts, or steering linkage first.

How to replace neutral saftey switch on a 1980 cadillac deville?


Use like reference guide for GM Cadillac 1967-1989 Repair Guide Neutral Safety Switch - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

All Except 1985-89 Eldorado and Seville
See Figure 1
The neutral safety switch prevents the engine from being started in any transmission position except Neutral or Park. The switch is located on the upper side of the steering column under the instrument panel on column shift cars, and inside the shift console on floor shift models.
  1. Remove the console for access on floor shift models.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors.
  3. Remove the neutral switch.

To install:
  1. Place 1967-70 column shift lever models in Drive, and 1971 and later models in neutral. Locate the lever tang against the transmission selector plate on column shift models.
  2. Align the slot in the contact support with the hole in the switch. Insert a 3 / 32 in. (2.38mm) diameter pin in place. The switch is now aligned in Drive position.

1973 and later neutral safety switches have a shear-pin installed to aid in proper switch alignment so that insertion of a pin is unnecessary. Moving the shift lever from Neutral shears the pin.
  1. Place the contact support drive slot over the drive tang. Install the switch mounting screws.
  2. Remove the aligning pin. Connect the electrical wiring, and replace the console.
  3. Set the parking brake and hold your foot on the service brake pedal. Check to see that the engine will start only in Park or Neutral.

ADJUSTMENT
See Figure 2
1974 and later cars do not have a neutral safety switch. Instead, these cars have an interlock between the lock and the transmission selector, which is non-adjustable.
  1. Place the shift lever in Neutral.
  2. Move the switch until you can insert a gauge pin, 3 / 32 in. (2.38mm) diameter, into the hole in the switch and through to the alignment hole.
  3. Loosen the switch securing screws. Remove the console first, if necessary.
  4. Tighten the screws and remove the pin.
  5. Step on the brake pedal and check to see that the engine will only start in Neutral or Park.

Fig. 2: Adjustment of a common neutral safety switch


1985-89 Eldorado and Seville
See Figure 3

All neutral safety/back-up light switches come with a small plastic alignment pin installed. Leave this pin in place.
  1. Place the shifter assembly in the Neutral position.
  2. Remove the shifter lever-to-switch nut and the lever.
  3. Disconnect the electrical connector from the neutral safety/back-up light switch.
  4. Remove the neutral safety/back-up light switch-to-transaxle bolts and the switch from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Position the shifter shaft in the Neutral position.

If using an old switch or the plastic pin (new switch) is broken, install a3/32in. (2.38mm) diameter pin gauge (drill bit) into the neutral safety/back-up light switch; the switch is then locked into its Neutral position.
  1. Align the flats of the shifter shaft and the neutral safety/back-up light, then, align the switch-to-tang on the transaxle. Torque the switch-to-transaxle bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). Remove the pin gauge.
  2. To complete installation, reverse the removal procedures. Make sure that the engine starts only in the Park and Neutral positions.

yes there is a switch called Prndl SWITCH OR THE SAFETY NETURAL SWITCH, SINCE IT SENSES WHEN IT IS IN park Drive one drive to neutral and reverse that's where it gets the name pronounced prndl switch. IT'S located on the side of the transmission where the linkage is you take the nut off to remove linkage with the car in park, Also has two bolts that have to be removed and the harness removed. if you need more information let me know. One other thought the starter solenoid could do the same thing if the button is burnt inside the ,
