90% of all neutral safety switches are located on the transmission.
since you already have the part you can simply pop the hood and try to match the part up. on a 4 cylinder motor there is usually lots of room to look around, but i have came a across a few that you would have to lift up the car to get on the back side.

Will the neutral safety switch keep it from shifting 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.

How is the nuetral safety switch on a Hyundia Santa fe 06? I believe if I'm facing the car its accessible on the left side. I removed the skid plate but can't locate it.


First we need to make sure that its the neutral safety switch how did you come about that conclusion? Try this next time it will not start shift the gear into neutral and try to start it again if it starts every time you shift to neutral I would say yes start with your neutral safety switch. Your neutral safety switch is incorporated with your transmission range sensor located on the transmission follow the transmission linkage to the transmission there you should find the neutral safety switch usually black in color made of plastic with a wire harness connected to it you could get someone to shift it for you while you look to make sure you are looking at the right part.

Netural safety switch


Daewoo cars have track record for dependability in addition to solid construction. The most important part of a car's design is the safety features. Circumvent excessive risk while motoring by insuring that your car has the safety gear that you want. A vehicle's Neutral Safety Switch is located on your clutch in the case that it's a manual transmission, and on the shifter in an automatic. A broken Neutral Safety Switch can cause your vehicle to suddenly start in gear, causing vehicle damage or personal injury.

If you don't have the Neutral Safety Switch, your vehicle will fail to work. The Neutral Safety Switch is typically situated below the clutch of trucks which have a stick-shift transmission. The primary function of a Neutral Safety Switch is to stop your truck from starting when in gear. The car's Neutral Safety Switch acts as a safety feature, keeping you from starting the engine if the car is in gear. The Neutral Safety Switch is an electronic part which is essential while starting your car.Here's a link to what it look's like.

What is a neutral safety switch?


The Neutral Safety switch monitors the position of your gear selector lever and either interrupts or allows the starting circuit in your car or truck to do its job. On newer vehicles it may also monitor the position of the brake pedal to make sure that the vehicle is in park or neutral AND that your foot is on the brake.

If your vehicle is equipped with a neutral safety switch, it should NOT start UNLESS the transmission is in Neutral or Park. On the other hand your vehicle SHOULD start when it is in Neutral or Park. If your car will start in Neutral but not in Park, you have a bad switch. Also, if your car or truck will only start by turning the key to the start position and wiggling the gear selector lever, your neutral safty switch is in need of replacement.

The nuetral safety switch is usually found near the gear shifter. If your car has the gear shift on the column, then the neutral safety switch is usully mounted on the steering column near the brake pedal. On floor mount or console mount vehicles you will find the nuetral safety switch mounted near or on the shifter mechanism.

I shut it off one night and won't start next day. Nothing, like a battery dead but that wasn't the problem. A guy said something EEC relay? I called part store, they said no such thing. Another guy said...


A neutral safety switch could very possibly be the problem. It could also be as simple as the gear shift linkage. Over time, the gear shift will develop some "play" and eventually won't line up with P,R,N,D,1,2 . To test this, hold the gear shift all the way to the left when trying to start the car. If it starts then you've identified the problem and need the linkage adjusted. If not, investigating the neutral safety switch would be a good idea.

Back up lights don't work and i already changed the light bulbs and the fuses are all fine


If you haven't checked for power going into the socket, or if the ground is good. I'd say you have a faulty neutral safety switch on the transmission. When you shift the gears it keeps the vehicle from starting unless it's in neutral or park. It also senses when you are in reverse and sends power to the reverse lights turning them on.

Engine will not turn over or start when in park with key on.


You linkage is working properly it sounds like, especially if the indicator for "D, R, N", etc are lining up. However the linkage or the neutral safety switch may need to be adjusted. More than likely, it's your neutral safety switch.

The brake pedal release has nothing to do with the neutral safety switch when switching gears.

The brake pedal release is just a safety to prevent you from pushing the gear shifter accidentally. Actually, you should be able to start the truck without holding the brakes.

If the neutral safety switch is bad or misaligned, it'll do exactly what you're describing. If pulling it down in neutral starts the truck, then that's a sure indicator.
