I would recommend going to the website and registering the vehicle. It doesn't cost anything and will give you access to an online repair manual for the vehicle. The steps for replacing the neutral safety switch can be found there. (I checked). Hope this helped and best wishes.

SOURCE: my neutral safety switch is

Your N/S/S is on the passenger side of the transmission directly opposite from where the linkage on the drivers side connects (it's on the same shaft). It is usually corroded onto the shaft and you will need to use lots of wd40 or other solvent and some patience in getting it free. It's plastic and if you pry hard you will break it. The harness is connected up on the firewall near the dipstick tube. Instructions for removal can be found in chiltons or haynes manuals. The switch itself is over $200 new so you may want to find one in a scrapyard or if you are careful (there are small contacts inside with springs) you can take it apart and clean it up.

Normally on your transmission. You will see one or two thick wire cable looking things that connect to a black thing on the top of the transmission (sometimes it's on the side). that black box looking thing is the neutral safety switch.

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.
