Will the neutral safety switch keep it from shifting out of low gear?

I installed a new fly wheel,found out it would not shift out of low gear, so I changed the fluid and the filter, made sure all shifting linkage was installed correctly and the kick-down cable was connected properly, when changing the fluid the pan was clean and so was the fluid, it just would not shift out of low gear

The neutral safety switch should not affect the shifting of the transmission. The neutral safety switch is there just to make sure that you have the transmission in park or neutral when cranking the engine. It is just a safety mechanism to prevent cranking while in forward or reverse and having the car lurch forward or backward.

I have an 2004 chevy blazer 4x4 and the four wheel drive does not engage on the fly and it also will not engage when in neutral. Four wheel low will work but when you press 4 wheel hi it blinks twice and...


Which of these does your vehicle have ?
The NVG 233 transfer case features a 3 button shift control switch, located on the instrument panel.
The NVG 236 transfer case features a 4 button shift control switch located on the instrument panel.
Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are ? Both of these 4X4 systems can set DTC'S , Having a professional or factory scanner is what is needed to check for these codes . Not a OBD 2 code reader or autozone , advance etc... The four button system can set a bunch of them .
DTC B2725
DTC C0300
DTC C0305
DTC C0308
DTC C0309
DTC C0310
DTC C0315
DTC C0323
DTC C0324
DTC C0327
DTC C0362
DTC C0367
DTC C0374
DTC C0376
DTC C0387
DTC C0550
DTC C0611

The NVG 233 transfer case features a 3 button shift control switch, located on the instrument panel. When the ignition is in the RUN position, the transfer case shift control module starts monitoring the transfer case shift control switch, to determine if a new mode/gear position has been selected. At a single press of the transfer case shift control switch, the lamp of the new position begins flashing to inform the driver that the transfer case shift control module has received the request for a new mode/gear position. The lamp continues to flash until all shifting criteria has been met and the new mode/gear position has been reached, or has engaged. Once the new mode/gear position is fully active, the switch indicator lamp for the new position remains ON constantly.
The NVG 233 transfer case provides the driver with 3 manual mode/gear positions:
• 2HI - 2 Wheel Drive high range
• 4HI - 4 Wheel Drive high range
• 4LO - 4 Wheel Drive low range
Any of these mode/gear positions may be selected while driving the vehicle. However, the transfer case will not allow a shift into, or out of, 4LO unless the following criteria has been met:
• The engine is running.
• The automatic transmission is in Neutral, or the clutch pedal is applied on manual transmissions.
• The vehicle speed is below 5 km/h (3 mph).


Finding out what if any codes are stored should be your first step .

WHAT IS THE CORRECT WAY TO GO FROM TWO WHEEL DRIVE TO 4 WHEEL DRIVE ON A 2003 GMC 2500HD


just shift to 4x4 on the fly as long as you are not going faster than 80 kms an hour.
four wheel drive low gear you will need to stop and put it in neutral, keep the brake to the floor and shift.

Neutral safty switch


Back-Up Light Switch/Neutral Safety SwitchREMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figure 1)

On automatic vehicles, functions of both the reverse lamps and the neutral safety switch are controlled by the shift position switch at the base of the shift selector. This multi-circuit switch also sends signals to the various electronic control units (cruise control, automatic transaxle ECU, etc.), keeping them advised of the selected gear.

Fig. 1: Reverse lamp and neutral safety switch functions are both controlled by a shift position switch at the base of the shift selector

To replace the shift position switch, firmly set the parking brake and block the wheels. Place the shift selector in N. Remove the console. The switch is located on the side of the shift selector, held by 2 bolts or nuts. Unplug the wiring connectors, then remove the switch.

When installing the switch, make sure the switch slider is positioned to align with the shifter arm or tab. Install the switch, tighten the retaining nuts or bolts and connect the wiring. Reinstall the console.

After installing the switch, check that the engine starts only in P or N; the starter should not engage with the shifter in any other position. Check also that the back-up lights come on when the selector is placed in R.

Hope this helps (remember comment and rated this).

My 4x4 is stuck in four wheel low it is shift on the fly and i have already replaced the transfer case motor


Ok here is a long shot but sometimes it will work. Put the 4wd position switch to 4wd Lo, put your transmission in reverse and back up for about 50 yards, stop and put your transmission in neutral, then shift the 4wd to 4wd hi, wait a few seconds and shift the 4wd to 2wd hi, Sometimes the t-case will get stuck and this is how you reset the computer. I have known people that really got their t-cases messed up because they thought that shift on the go meant that they could shift the t-case into 4wd LO while moving but shift on the go is only for 4wd hi the gears will not mesh up fast enough for 4wd LO because the ratio is 1 to 1 . I hope this helps you.

Wont shift back from 4x4 low, to 2x2


I also have a 2002 Envoy. Shifting to and from 4wh and 4wa can be done on the fly but shifting to 4wL has to be done stoped and while in neutral. Try that. Otherwise I'm afraid its a new computer for you. Its located under the left rear seat and you need a loan for one.

1991 mustang 2.l starter staying engaged


what happens if you pull the shift lever into gear to cut off the neutral-park safety switch? This cuts pwer from the key to the starter solenoid. If that fixes it, replace the igniton switch.
