Mode switch is on the LH side of the transmission.
Unclip the mode switch cover.
Disconnect the nut that holds the selector lever to the mode switch and pull the lever away.
Disconnect the harness from the mode switch connector then unbolt the connector and its bracket from the transmission and unbolt the mode switch itself from the transmission.
Replacement is the reverse of removal.
Do the following to align:
Loosen the switch hold down bolts. Turn the switch until the slot in the switch lines up with the bushing and insert a drill bit into the slot. Retorque the switch to transmission bolts.
Torque settings: Mode switch bolt 13 N.m., selector lever bolt 23 N.m.

Why do I have to wiggle it around in neutral to get it to start again?


sounds like the neutral safety switch. i have replaced a few on ford trucks. after a while they tend to wear out or get out of adjustment. but if you wiggle it around and it starts. my guess is the neutral safety switch. you didn't specify what kind of vehicle you have but there are a lot of videos on you tube that may show you how to do this. good luck

Test/Service/Replace Neutral Safety Switch
Most neutral safety switches are combinations of a neutral safety switch and a backup lamp switch. Others have separate units for these two distinct functions. When the reverse light switch is not part of the neutral safety switch, it seldom needs adjustment, as it is directly activated by the transmission or the gear selector linkage.
f_ttat_t3.20.jpg Typical location of a neutral safety switch on a transaxle. Reprinted with permission of Ford Motor Company. A neutral safety switch allows current to pass from the starter switch to the starter when the lever is placed in the P or N position. Some neutral safety switches are nonadjustable. If these prevent starting in the P or N position and the gear selector linkage is correctly adjusted, they should be replaced.
To adjust a typical neutral safety switch:
  • Place the shift lever in neutral.
  • Loosen the attaching bolts for the switch.
  • Using the angling pin, move the switch until the pin falls into the hole in its rotor.
  • Tighten the attaching bolts.
  • Recheck the switch for continuity. If no voltage is present, replace the switch.
  • The switch sometimes controls the operation of the back-up lights also. With the engine off and the key on, put the selector in reverse position. Check the back-up lights to see that they are on. Then, check in the drive position to see that they are out.

Where is the neutral safety switch on my 2004 suburban ?


Its possible that your have some "no start" condition or intermittent problem about this; to test it, shift the Trans into Neutral, if the engine starts in Neutral, the problem is the Neutral Safety Switch. If the engine still will not start then the problem will be in the Ignition Switch.

The heat of the engine is usually what does in the starter motor. The Neutral Safety Switch is not common at all. It is fairly easy to remove, it is bolted to the drivers side of the transmission where the shift cable attaches. The problem you run into when replacing the Neutral Safety Switch is that the connectors are glued into the switch and will not come out. This will require replacement of the connectors if you replace the switch.

Hope helps (remember to rating this answer and leave a testimonial comment). Thak you for using Fixya.

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.
