Question about 2001 Buick Century
NO PNP PARK/NEUTRAL POSITION SWITCH
On top of the transmission, has a triangle shape. Backup light switch is incorporated into it. Has to be adjusted to Neutral position with transmission in Neutral to get it right. Be careful to chock the tires so the car cannot roll and use the hand brake for added safety.

Typically the Neutral Safety Switches are located with the gear selector, either in the column or the floor.
Hope this helps,

As of 1994, the neutral safety switch is referred to as a Manual Lever Position Sensor (MLP).

I take it that you have an automatic transmission the shift selector /neutral saftey switch switch is located on top of the transmission were the shift cable connects to the trans. Remove the 13 mm nut in the center of the switch and remover the shift cable and lever noting the location of the lever. then remove the bolts holsing the switch to the transmission and the elec connector.

The backup lamps will light whenever the ignition switch is in the RUN position and the transaxle is in REVERSE. On older vehicles, this function was handled by a dedicated switch with a name such as the Neutral/Safety Backup Light Switch, or something similar. This switch was designed to keep the engine from starting in any gear except PARK and/or NEUTRAL. The switch contacts also activated the backup lights when the transaxle was placed in REVERSE.
On the vehicles covered by this manual, the backup lamp control function is part of an integrated switch called the Transaxle Range switch (sometimes also called the Park/Neutral Position or PNP switch). In addition to turning on the backup lights, the Transaxle Range switches primary function is to transmit to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) the driver's transaxle range selection. The PCM uses this information to control both engine and transaxle functions electronically.
The Transaxle Range switch is mounted externally on the transaxle. New service replacement switches come pinned in the NEUTRAL position and no adjustment should be necessary. Please note that if the switch requires adjustment, GM recommends that their special tool J 41545 Park/Neutral Switch Alignment Tool be used to properly adjust the Transaxle Range switch, if required.
