Why would you replace a neutral safety switch, Your about to back up,not start the truck?
A wiring diagram helps before you throw parts at things.
On the driver side of the trans,near the rear, is the back up switch.
Dealer item,comes with an o-ring. Easy job. Forget if it take a special socket

Where is the Neutral Safety switch on a 2001 F350?


hi! if you are speaking of a stick shift, there isnt one, per say. the truck
can be started in all gears, you have to depress the clutch first to engage
the starter.the neutral safety switch is around the clutch pedal attaching
point, like the brake light switch. if you mean the automatic, i have not
worked on one of them. its usually on the trans by the shift selecter!!
you could google this for alocation 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 relay and/or in line fuse for the back up lights on a 2002 GMC Envoy. New bulbs and fuses are fine in both fuse boxes. Still not working so there must be a in line fuse or relay out?


check the neutral safety switch. connected to the shift lever, keeps you from running the starter unless in park or neutral, AND it turns on the back up lights when in reverse.

My back up lights wont work on my 97 dodge neon, i changed the fuse and the light bulbs, now what? help please


Hi!!
What controls the Back Up Lights is the Neutral Safety Switch/Back Up Switch, located on the transmission shifter (engine compartment). Check for 12v+ coming in from the fuse box to the Neutral Safety Switch, if OK, check for 12v+ out of the wire going to the back up lights when in Reverse, if no power, replace switch, if there is power, check wiring from switch to back up lights.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Back up lights don't work and i already changed the light bulbs and the fuses are all fine


If you haven't checked for power going into the socket, or if the ground is good. I'd say you have a faulty neutral safety switch on the transmission. When you shift the gears it keeps the vehicle from starting unless it's in neutral or park. It also senses when you are in reverse and sends power to the reverse lights turning them on.

Replace the reverse light bulbs and when tranmissing is shifted into reverse light don't turn on


Safety neutral switch on transmission is also your back-up light switch, built into one switch. You can try adjusting shifter, but usually need to replace the switch.

Reverse lights not working


Did you replace the back up light switch? Also try having someone watch the lights as you wiggle the shifter while in reverse position with the key on-trace the circuit from the column to the the lights with a test light sounds like a bad switch
