What is a neutral safety switch?


The Neutral Safety switch monitors the position of your gear selector lever and either interrupts or allows the starting circuit in your car or truck to do its job. On newer vehicles it may also monitor the position of the brake pedal to make sure that the vehicle is in park or neutral AND that your foot is on the brake.

If your vehicle is equipped with a neutral safety switch, it should NOT start UNLESS the transmission is in Neutral or Park. On the other hand your vehicle SHOULD start when it is in Neutral or Park. If your car will start in Neutral but not in Park, you have a bad switch. Also, if your car or truck will only start by turning the key to the start position and wiggling the gear selector lever, your neutral safty switch is in need of replacement.

The nuetral safety switch is usually found near the gear shifter. If your car has the gear shift on the column, then the neutral safety switch is usully mounted on the steering column near the brake pedal. On floor mount or console mount vehicles you will find the nuetral safety switch mounted near or on the shifter mechanism.

1999 ford expedition shifter hard go in park.truck does not start


If your Expedition will only start in Neutral, and the shifter is really loose, watch this video. It fixed both the truck not staying in park AND the starting issue:

Truck will not start.


sounds like the starter solenoid or starter relay or the "Park-Neutral Safety switch"

Try starting it in neutral, or carefully, hold the key in start while moving the shift lever from park to low gear slowly and - with your foot on the brake and parking brake on.

report back.
