Its most likely not from the same year.
Simply cutting/splicing the wires will be ok.

I have a 1996 Grand Jeep Cherokee and was told that there is a switch that is connected to the transmission that needs to be repaired, a plug switch, it will only start if those wires are connected, not...


If the switch (neutral safety switch) is located at the drivers rear of the transmission, you can usually get a replacement plug from a scrapyard. the plug has three wires. one is power, one goes to the reverse lights and the other operates the starter. (difficult to get it wrong when re-connecting).
If the switch itself is bad, it just screws out and screws back in. Put a pan under there when replacing it as you may loose some trans fluid..
If you have a six cylinder then the switch should be on the passenger side of the trans opposite where the linkage on the drivers side goes into the unit. That's a bit more complicated to replace and I suggest you get a chilton or haynes manual for instructions. That switch has it's own harness that ends at a plug up on the firewall near the trans fill tube.

TRANSMISSION DOES NOT GO IN REVERSE IT GOES IN THE FORWARD GEARS BUT WILL NOT MOVE IN REVERSE

Dodge shadow auto trans will go forward 1 or


It's not a switch or hoses. Make sure your fluid level is correct; it should be measured when hot (like too hot to touch the dipstick.) Assuming you have fluid of the correct sort and amount:
If it is a three-speed, the trans is bad. If it is a four-speed, the trans is almost certainly bad, but there is a slight chance of a computer malfunction - computers shift the 4-speed trannies. The 3-speeds are tougher and cheaper, but generally speaking give worse fuel economy.
