Where do I find the 2008 Buick Enclave neutral safety switch

It's called a Manual Shift Detent (w/Shaft Position Switch) Lever Assembly. And it's inside the transmission .
What problem are you having ? No crank , when you turn the ignition switch to the start position nothing happens ? No click ,nothing ? If your think of just replacing the switch ,stop , did you have it diagnosed ? This starting system is computer controlled .
When the ignition switch is placed in the Start position, a discrete signal is supplied to the body control module (BCM) notifying it that the ignition is in the Start position. The BCM then sends a message to the engine control module (ECM) notifying it that CRANK has been requested. The ECM verifies that the transmission is in Park or Neutral. If it is, the ECM then supplies 12 volts to the control circuit of the crank relay. When this occurs, battery positive voltage is supplied through the switch side of the crank relay to the S terminal of the starter solenoid.

have the vehicle checked .

94 ford ranger splash 4.0 will start but dies,i don't know if it is fuel related or what. iv'e changed about everything I know.

Try the ignition module or the ignition switch itself. I have seen them before where they will only get spark in the crank mode. Also check and make sure that your wires are on the correct side of the starter solenoid and not only getting power when you are cranking.

My patriot got coolant into the oil after a freeze plug popped on my engine on christmas. Thinking it was the head gasket, we pulled the engine apart and replaced the all of the gaskets, cleaning...

Replace out that censor it will stop the vehicle from starting. if the crank shaft is not adjusted by the censor then the car will not start. It is a key part of the timing and will throw the automatic kill switch to the ECM (electronic control module) that allows the car to start.When you do repairs like that it is always a good thing to change out that censor as it will always go bad from ware.

My jimmy just died at a drive thru we have changed the ignition module then the crank shaft censor then the computer still not working the engine will turn over but not catch..what do i do now????

what gave you the reason to change all the things you have replaced. and just remember just because you replaced something doesnt mean that the part may not be defective... check for fuel, fuel pressure, spark, compression first. then i can help you.

1992 lumina starts, sputters, then dies. replaced the coil packs, plugs, wires, map censor, cleaned the maf censor. any ideas?

About the only things that you have not changed that would cause that problem are the fuel pump, the ECM, (Engine Control Module) or if your vehicle has one it could be the ignition module, and here is an image of what the ignition module will look like, and not all applications will use one.

Cranks but wont turn over

you know. i took it to a mechanic and actually.... The timing belt cut the Crank Shaft Censor... So it was the crank shaft censor again. The wires were routed wrong from the first mechanic that "fixed" the car.
