SOURCE: neutral safety switch

It is located on the side of the transmission, follow the shift cable down to it you will recognize it because it has a electrical wire comming off it and either a shift lever or shift cable going to it.

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

Hope this helps,

2005 Chevy Malibu would'start. Put it in dive and back to start and it started.What is wrong that I have to do that.


Maybe a bad Neutral Safety Switch.
  • Neutral safety switch sends a signal to the on-board computer to allow the engine to start and to engage the transmission
  • When not replaced, vehicle may experience no start and/or transmission will not shift out of park.Here's a link to what it look's like.

Where is the safety switch for a 2006 chevy malibu


Safety switch ? For what ? Park neutral safety switch ,is this what you mean ? Your vehicle not starting ? There is a lot more involved then just that switch.
Circuit Description
For ignition switch power modes refer to Body Control System Description and Operation. Once the ignition is placed in the Run/Crank position, the control circuit of the Run/Crank relay is grounded by the body control module (BCM). With the Run/Crank relay switch closed, battery positive voltage flows through it and on to the park/neutral position (PNP) switch. With the PNP switch in either the Park or Neutral position, battery positive voltage will flow to the starter relay coil supply voltage input terminal of the powertrain control module and the coil side of the starter relay. Placing the ignition in the START position sends a message to the engine control module (ECM)/powertrain control module (PCM) requesting engine start. If the ECM/PCM has determined that the transmission is in Park or Neutral and theft is not active, it will ground the control circuit of the starter relay. Battery positive voltage will then flow through the switch side of the starter relay to the S terminal of the starter solenoid, cranking the engine. For remote vehicle start (RVS) information, refer to Keyless Entry System Description and Operation.

2006 Malibu Maxx SS transmission.Only drives in M and reverse.


It might have gone into safe mode but I would have expected safe mode to permit the vehicle only into low and reverse but your car might be different. Is the problem accompanied by dashboard lights staying on that did not stay on before. I would say that this is definitely one for a garage mechanic as , padricularly if dash lights are on, it would need diagnostic equopment to identify the problem

Good Luck

I have been told that my neutral safety switch is out on my 2006 Subaru Baja. I have a manual transmission. I didn't think manual transmissions had a neutral safety switch. Please advise.


correct, but they do have a safety interlock somewhere on the clutch that prevents starter from getting power if clutch is not pushed in.

Neutral safety switch What is it. Son pulled key out of ignition with the tramission not in park.Can not even turn ignition switch over. Is the neutral safety switch the problem


A neutral safety switch will stop the path of battery power going to the starter motor if the gear shift isn't in park or neutral. I dont believe your issue is here, I would say the ignition lock assembly.
