Buried deep inside the back housing of the generator. GM designed this pile to not be worked on although there are now repair parts available for it. There is no way to test the regulator and you will likely destroy the diode assembly before you get it apart. Also, a lot of trouble is caused by the huge voltage spikes these units develop. It's very common to go through four to six of these in the life of the vehicle. The best way to reduce the repeat failures is to replace the battery at the same time. It will work fine in older cars and trucks, but as they age, they lose their ability to dampen those spikes.

its on the front fuel injector rail, on the drivers end of the engine, has a small vac hose to it. Why do you want to know. they rarely go bad, but the only thing that will happen, that if you take the vac hose off, if gas comes out, its bad. Usually the complaint is hard to start warm. and in am.

Want to bypass neutral safety switch on a 1992 Oldsmobile 88 any ideas

this isn't a good idea to do this for safety reasons as the vehicle can be started in gear it is better to replace it if it is faulty, I'm not familiar with the rules & regulations where you are but here in Australia if I done that & caused an accident I would be in more trouble than a pregnant nun......hope this helps......cheers.
