How do I replace or adjust the neutral safety switch.


Before you adjust switches, get the car on a lift and be sure the shift linkage is tight. If the linkage is worn, the car may not be fully in park even though the lever and indicator look like the car is in park.

The switch is on the transmission. You should be able to see it when the car is on the lift.

97 Maxda Protege starter engages automaticly in park or neutral with key in ON position


You've pretty much answered your own question, although I doubt it's demons...LOL. Ign switch, nuetral safety or park switch, shorted starter, could be chaffed wiring. If your in the ON position and the starter engages, I'd be looking at the ign wire from the switch to the starter solenoid and or relay. Your car is 20 years old so anything is possible at this point. Your best bet is to go to ALLDATA>COM and buy the wiring schematics for your car grab a DVM and start checking your circuits.

Car is in park on incline, and will not start.


There is a neutral safety switch to make sure car is neutral.If that switch went bad or becase your parked on incline the switch is not made up because car rolled back when you put it in park.If you can depending on the situation,put key in ignition,turn key till one click before it starts,apply emergency brake,depress regular brakes and shift car from park to drive then back to park.then turn off key and restart.If for some reason you try to shift out of park and it wont move you need to roll car a little forward or backward(have someone else do the pushing and be carefull not to put anyone in a pinch point between another car if this car is parked between two cars)With older cars this is usally the case.If this fixes your problem i would have a mechanic change switch because this will probrobly happen again.Be carefull.......

My 2001 aurora will sometimes not start in park


the neutral safety switch may be bad or out of adjustment. if switch is bad, no voltage will go through it in park to start car. you can also check to make sure it is going all the way into park.

sounds like park safety switch,there are 2 switches 1 neutral and 1 park, if it starts in neutral,it is working,if in park,and does not start usually means bad switch or wire off.

Dead key all lights are ok carwont start no click click click


try starting it in neutral. sometimes the neutral safety switch thinks you are just outside of park (aka in reverse). this switch will not allow the car to start in any gear except park and neutral. also, try shifting firmly in and out of park several times. this may trip the switch. good luck

The car dont want to start at the park position.but at the neutral position the car start.


Your neutral saftey switch is broken. This is the switch that ensures the car is either in park or neutral when you start it. The switch for the park is worn out.
