    is the starter making a loud screaching noise when you try to start it. I'm not sure what you are trying to say, please give me a better explanation of what is happening.

The neutral safety switch is actually in the transmission.

the starter relay should be on the p/side front fender near the battery, real easy to replace. disconnect the battery ground first.

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 .

2005 dodge neon - revs high in park nuetral and tough to push break pedal down. mechanic doesn't know what it is. Anyone have this problem resolved before? Thanks

sounds to me like you have a vacuum leak. When you lose vacuum the brake booster doesn't operate right. You need to go too a different mechanic. Could be the idle selonoid staying open or even a bad brake booster or vacuum hose came off.

01silverado will not turn over replaced the starter worked good for 3 days now its back to the way it was before also when the key is on the volt meter doesn't move and the battery is new

It would help to know exactly what the voltmeter was reading.
Although many US trucks have ammeters instead of voltermeters, which are not as useful.
If you are saying the ignition switch is not causing a heavy draw as one would expect from a starter, then either the ignition switch, neutral safety switch, solenoid, bad engine ground, or dirty battery terminals are reducing current flow. A voltmeter should read 12 volts from the battery when engine is off. Why you try to start, the starter should draw it down do about 10, but then when it starts and you rev it up, it should go over 13.5. If it does not drop to 10, then you have a blockage.

Sometimes often enough when in park the starter wont start. Have to wiggle the floor gearf shifter then it may start. It will start in nuetral. Need Help

you need to either replace the neutral safety switch, or it may just be out of adjustment, let me know what kind of truck ( year, make, model ) and i can look up the adjustment and location of the switch.

Won't start, turnover, nothing. can shift between park and neutral and car will start.

It sounds like your transmission range sensor. It tells your transmission what gear your in and what gears to switch to when driving. It is reading that your not in park unless you move your shifter. You need to have it adjusted or replaced. If you want to take a look at it, it is located on the side of the transmission with a cable running to it. Just a little box like thing.

Will not start. Battery seems to be ok, can smell fuel but engine will no turnover.

Chech starter solenoid, some ford models have a separate starter relay solenoid that fails. jump the two post to see iff the starter engages. make sure it is in nuetral.

Car won't start. Bought privately 2 days ago, started fine, now will not start. Starter replaced in Feb '08, but less than 500 miles put on car since then. Checked battery and it is fully charged. No sound...

check for constant battery power on the main lug of the starter constantly. and check the small wire for battery power while trying to start if you are missing the small wire power could be your starter relay or ignition switch, you can also try jumping the two posts on the starter with the key on if it starts you are missing the starter signal decribed above (small wire) please rate -jeff
