How do I check a ground connection ? My 1988 GMC Jimmy has a new starter and again it seems to free wheel and not start.Seems to help if I put it in neutral.


You could possibly have a bad park neutral safety switch , power ( voltage ) from ignition goes thru the park neutral safety switch to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . Does your vehicle have automatic or manual transmission ? And you should have voltage drop testing on the starter circuit done . Starter Voltage Drop You could have a bad battery cable .

Where is the starter relay located on a 1992 olds 88 royale


It's piggybacked on to the starter.

Also, check the neutral safety switch - Put your foot on the brake and put the car in neutral. Then try to start it. If it starts the neutral safety switch is bad. It could be the ignition switch. It could be to starter solenoid. Does it have an inertia switch? They rarely go bad but I have seen it.

What is the easiest way to change the neutral safety switch on a 99 sunfire?


Take it to a shop where they can put it on a lift - the park/neutral switch is located on the left side of the transmission. You could crawl under the car, disconnect the wiring connector, remove the old switch, and reverse the process for the new one...but it's a tight squeeze under there unless you put the car on ramps or jackstands.

How to replace neutral safety switch


On the 1998 Town and Country, the neutral safety switch is inside the transmission . If you are not of the faint of heart, remove the bottom transmission pan and the lower valve body (do not loose any springs or little shiny steel balls), take the old one out and put the new one in and make sure to put the valve body in. The part costs around $50.00. A reputable shop will do it for less than $300.00.

Need to install new neutral safety switch on tranny of 1979 Ford F150 - any tips or problems I may encounter? Does the new switch need to be adjusted after install or just bolted in place? thanks, also the...


There is a procedure to set the switch so that it will start in neutral and park and not in drive or reverse, there are two slotted mounting holes on the switch for adjustment purposes to get it close put a scribe mark on the old switch in relation to the mounting bolt heads, when installing new switch look at the marks on the old switch to approximately locate the switch in relation to mounting bolt heads. When removing the switch make sure the truck is in park, remove the shift lever nut off the transmission where the Neutral safety switch is, then unplug the wire going to the switch, mark the bolt relation to switch as described and slide switch off the transmission shift shaft, the inside of switch hole is not round it has a flat or square type hole so it can lock into shaft and turn with shaft you may need to rotate the switch back and forth to slide it over the shift shaft when installing the new switch. bolt it on after sliding it over the shaft noting the aproximate location using the scribe marks on old switch, after assembling the shift lever and plugging the wire back in a fine adjustment of switch amy be needed if the starter doesn't activate, get under the truck loosen the hold down bolts for the switch and have an assistant hold the ignition switch to the start position while you rotate the switch when the starter activates lock down the bolts and check after to be sure the truck won't start in drive or reverse adjust accordingly.

Neutral switch 1993 cadillac


The neutral safety switch is on the top of the automatic transaxle (under the hood). You have to remove the air cleaner assembly for access to this item. Once the air cleaner is off, you can see the switch mounted on top of the transaxle.
Remove the shift linkage, electrical connectors and vacuum hose as needed.
Remove fuel line bracket if needed.
Remove mounting bolts and nuts to remove the old switch.

Install new switch as reverse of above.
Put shift lever in neutral.
Align switch so it's alignment hole and the matching tang hole line up. Tighten down the switch mounting bolts. Verify that the engine starts in PARK and NEUTRAL. Re-adjust if it doesn't.
