If linkage was disconnected, it is possible the selector says P and it may be in R. Check and shift manually at the transmission into the N or the P position.

How to bypass the neutral safety switch on a 2000 Chevy Silverado Z 71 4 x 4


The purple wire with a white stripe goes to the starter from the neutral safety switch. I believe it is the yellow wire at the neutral safety switch that will have the the signal from the ignition switch for the start signal. ( Test this yellow wire with a test light while holding the key in the start position to see if it lights to make sure yellow is the correct color ) and join the wires together. This will by-pass the neutral safety switch

Is there a clutch safety switch on a 1994 nissan ultima or why would the car not start but has power everywhere else won't turn over or anything.


all standard vehicles have a neutral safety switch for many decades so people won`t try starting them in gear causing damage or hurting someone. it maybe open. its located at the base of the clutch pedal and as you push on the pedal all the way down it closes the switch to allow power to start the car. its a 2 wire switch so you can jump the 2 wires and see if the car will start. make sure the car is in neutral.

It it won't crank in park but will crank in neutral, the problem is the neutral safety switch on the transmission.

2002 chevy impala won't start if I jump starter


Is the security light on or flashing ?
The yellow wire goes from the key switch to the neutral safety switch, then to the starter. So bypassing the neutral safety would make the starter crank the engine, but would have nothing to do with the rest of the engine.

Mini van wont start battary charged new altanator and starter all wires are grounded


Do you mean it won't start, or won't crank.
You should have a neutral safety switch between the key switch and the starter to prevent you from cranking the engine in drive or reverse.
A defective switch would keep the engine from cranking.
A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter on the wire from the key switch and go from there.

if your starting the car,by only jumping a wire at the neutral switch,then you more than likely have a bad neutral safety switch that needs to be replaced.

The car won"t crank, 1992 Volkswagon Passat


If the switch (neutral safety switch) is broken, it will not crank regardless whether you jump the battery or a new battery is installed. I don't have specific manual for your year that's why my advice is as in general. With a remote starter tool, bypassing the solenoid wire with remote starter which is connected to the positive terminal of the battery of it's other end. Once positive current flows from the battery, through the remote switch, flowing towards the solenoid, the starter should engage indicating a bad wiring harness connection from ignition switch. If it doesn't crank at all you may have a bad starter assembly and needs replacing. If your starter is clicking using it's own battery power, your battery is low of charge or your charging system is malfunctioning.

Pls, rate this suggestion, thank you.

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.
