SOURCE: where is neutral safety switch 95 jeep cherokee

Your switch is on the passenger side of the transmission opposite where the shift linkage goes in on the drivers side.It takes a bit of careful prying and wiggling and some solvent to get most to come off. after removing the hardware that holds it on. The switch goes for about $200 but can be taken apart and cleaned...unless the contacts are really burned it will generally work after that. make sure that you keep it flat when taking it apart because stuff inside can fall out easily. Put dielectric grease in there before closing it up.Can't help with schematic...the ones I have I wouldn't wish on anyone. (terrible)

Ihave 2009 chevy impala. can't get key out of ignition switch


If it is a floor shift models it is a broken wire on the solenoid on the right lower of the shifter. Take the console out by unsnapping the trim from around the shifter and removing it. Next take out the screws (7mm, 2 of them on either side of the shifter) and there are 4 more of the same size inside the cubby in the console, exposed by lifting tthe cubby lid, emptying the crap out of it and lifting the felt up. Take all of the screws out and then move the shifter to the 1st gear position and remove a phillips head screw on the front of the shifter to remove the shift handle. Now lift out the console. You will more than likely see the broken wire when you look at the lower right side of the shifter close to the floor. Repair this connection by cutting all 4 wires leading to the harness plug and splicing 4 extra inches of wire to each and also repair the connection that broke out of the harness plug. The only option I found was to buy a fuel pump wire harness repair kit to get the connecters needed. The problem is that GM did not put enough slack in the wires leading to the shift interlock solenoid and when repeated drive to park shifting is done will stress this connection. Sometimes it will make it not disengage the shift interlock solenoid and you can not get it into drive from park, other times it breaks the wire for the key release. This should fix your problems, otherwise you have a problem with the BCM. SHould save you all a ton of GM service department spending.

How do you find the neutral switch in a dodge ram 1500 truck.


The neutral safety switch is on the transmission next to the transmission shifter shaft and unscrews after you unplug the wiring harness.

Check your connections at the shifter and neutral safety switch. If you wiggle the shifter and it starts, the problem is close to the base of the shifter or the wiring harness to the transmission from the shifter. Look for loose connections or damaged wiring.

Bronco wont start 88 ford bronco just replaced tranny and now won't start. i've hooked everything back up but one of the wires to the transfer case bc i broke the plug in. any ideas why it wont start...


The neutral safety switch is located on the side of the transmission and it is usually attached behind the shifter linkage and it is secured with two small bolts that can be loosened up to allow for adjustment of the neutral safety switch.

To adjust the neutral safety switch place the transmission into neutral, (block the tires) there is a notch or and indent marker on the housing of the neutral safety switch that should be lined up with a line on the face of the collar that is around the shifter detent shaft, and if they are not in alignment then loosen the two bolts that secure the neutral safety switch and then turn the neutral safety switch until they are aligned and then tighten the securing bolts to the neutral safety switch, and then test the starter. If the starter fails to engage then either the neutral safety switch is faulty, the neutral safety switch has been by-passed all this time and the by-pass (I will usually find things like a paper clip shoved into the vehicles wire connector with electrical tape around it) has fallen out of the wire connector from the vehicle wiring harness, or the battery just went dead. if you have the neutral safety switch from the old transmission still available try using it to test the neutral safety circuit. I have provided you with an image to help assist you adjust the neutral safety switch.

How to replace neutral saftey switch on a 1980 cadillac deville?


Use like reference guide for GM Cadillac 1967-1989 Repair Guide Neutral Safety Switch - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

All Except 1985-89 Eldorado and Seville
See Figure 1
The neutral safety switch prevents the engine from being started in any transmission position except Neutral or Park. The switch is located on the upper side of the steering column under the instrument panel on column shift cars, and inside the shift console on floor shift models.
  1. Remove the console for access on floor shift models.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors.
  3. Remove the neutral switch.

To install:
  1. Place 1967-70 column shift lever models in Drive, and 1971 and later models in neutral. Locate the lever tang against the transmission selector plate on column shift models.
  2. Align the slot in the contact support with the hole in the switch. Insert a 3 / 32 in. (2.38mm) diameter pin in place. The switch is now aligned in Drive position.

1973 and later neutral safety switches have a shear-pin installed to aid in proper switch alignment so that insertion of a pin is unnecessary. Moving the shift lever from Neutral shears the pin.
  1. Place the contact support drive slot over the drive tang. Install the switch mounting screws.
  2. Remove the aligning pin. Connect the electrical wiring, and replace the console.
  3. Set the parking brake and hold your foot on the service brake pedal. Check to see that the engine will start only in Park or Neutral.

ADJUSTMENT
See Figure 2
1974 and later cars do not have a neutral safety switch. Instead, these cars have an interlock between the lock and the transmission selector, which is non-adjustable.
  1. Place the shift lever in Neutral.
  2. Move the switch until you can insert a gauge pin, 3 / 32 in. (2.38mm) diameter, into the hole in the switch and through to the alignment hole.
  3. Loosen the switch securing screws. Remove the console first, if necessary.
  4. Tighten the screws and remove the pin.
  5. Step on the brake pedal and check to see that the engine will only start in Neutral or Park.

Fig. 2: Adjustment of a common neutral safety switch


1985-89 Eldorado and Seville
See Figure 3

All neutral safety/back-up light switches come with a small plastic alignment pin installed. Leave this pin in place.
  1. Place the shifter assembly in the Neutral position.
  2. Remove the shifter lever-to-switch nut and the lever.
  3. Disconnect the electrical connector from the neutral safety/back-up light switch.
  4. Remove the neutral safety/back-up light switch-to-transaxle bolts and the switch from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Position the shifter shaft in the Neutral position.

If using an old switch or the plastic pin (new switch) is broken, install a3/32in. (2.38mm) diameter pin gauge (drill bit) into the neutral safety/back-up light switch; the switch is then locked into its Neutral position.
  1. Align the flats of the shifter shaft and the neutral safety/back-up light, then, align the switch-to-tang on the transaxle. Torque the switch-to-transaxle bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). Remove the pin gauge.
  2. To complete installation, reverse the removal procedures. Make sure that the engine starts only in the Park and Neutral positions.

My 93 jeep cherokee does not start sometimes, I have to play with shifter to engage it, when it does engage I hear a click. Have to put it in neutral sometimes to start.


The neutral safety switch is faulty which would explain why sometimes you have to position it in neutral for it to start.The switch is located on side of the transmission,It has a long wiring harness that runs up near the transmission dipstick tube.U can purchase that switch at advance auto.
