If you look at the wire to the starter solenoid it should be green or orange. That will be the wire to use. The solenoid as you know needs power to rune the starter only and a push button switch will do alright for you. Just hide it in a good spot were know one will activate it while the engine is running. That will be bad for the flywheel and starter drive

Need a manuel for park/neautrual sitch 1999 chevy pickup


No manual necessary. The Neutral start switch is mounted on the side of the transmission. Two screws and you have it in your hand. There is a wire harness connector that plugs into it. You can get a manual from most auto parts stores.

1973 chevy truck wiring diagram


The odometer uses the same cable the speedometer uses. It should be mechanical.
Now the HEI coil has two pinks and a brown. One pink goes to the pickup in the bottom of the distributor and the other pink goes to the key switch. The brown goes to the pickup or the ignition module in the distributor.

Trying to install a push button ignition need to know which two wires to run to the button, without having to spend hours tracing and guessing. A diagram showing the wires would be great.


Your switch has 4 terminals.

1. Red is the hot wire from the battery.
2. Dark Blue is the run wire. This wire powers PCM, and engine and well as all accessories when the key is on.
3. Yellow is the start wire. It powers the engine, ECU and starter circuit when the key is turned to start.
4. Last terminal is accessories. I don't know the color, but it will power the radio, blower, windows, mirrors, etc. when key is turned to ACC. Some diagrams of the switch are below. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Chevy pickup 4-wheel drive won't engage


Replace the push button selector assembly. Common failures. If that isnt the problem then the encoder motor on transfer case has failed. Try switch first.

How do you get the starter out of 1988 chevy S-10 pick up 4 wheel drive 5 speed trans


Generally there are two bolts holding the starter in.  I have a 98 cavalier and I recently replaced the starter.  Not hard but not too easy either.  You might have a little more room than I did so it houldn't be too hard.  Go to autozone.com.  They have free online repair manuals.  Good luck.

1998 S10 Chevy Horn not working


You most likely need a new clock spring rotating contact under the steering wheel, it is a plastic ribbon with wire in it to connect the horn button and other accessories to the steering wheel while allowing the wheel to turn.
