Mazda starter switch in park Car starts in neutral, but won't turn the starter in park. Battery is fine, its a1999 6cyl with automatic. Intermitent problem


You need to replace and adjust your transmission range sensor switch. (also known as neutral safety switch) It is located under the air cleaner ducting on the top of the transmission under the lever where the shifter cable attaches.

Car just started today. When driving to it sounds like thump when changing gears. Talked to transmission guy and he said that Mazda is notorious for faulty park/neutral switch. If we replace that it should...


The park/neutral safety switch has two purposes,
1 not to let the engine start unless it is in park or neutral settings.
2 is when you manually switch gears, it tells the computer and the computer keeps the engine in check until you shift, then the computer compensates for that gear and so on.
I would check motor/ transmission mounts, drive shafts, Suspension bushings,struts, or steering linkage first.

How can i fix my mazda 626 transmission range


The transmission range sensor aka neutral safety switch is located underneath the air filter on top of the transaxle and very easy to access. Replace this part (around $50) and it will solve your problem.
What happens is this, when your tranny warms up, it disperses heat to the sensor switch and if its faulty or worn out, will send faulty relays to the transmissiom computer module (TCM) and makes the transmission shift irratically (OD to 3rd and back while driving at freeway speeds). You tranny is not overheating like most people believe, its the switch. Mechanics are telling alot of people that their tranny needs replaced. Watch Out For These People!! They only want your money!!

My 1999 mazda 626 lx will not start, battery is good, it does nothing when i turn on .


There is a Neutral Safety Switch at the gear shifter. If this switch is broken, it will cause a open loop to check it it is in PARK position so no current can go to the starter, therefore it does nothing when it is turned on.

Sounds like the neutral safety switch is faulty. The engine should not start with the trans. in gear. It seems as though the neutral switch is not disengaging when the engine is running and then put in gear.

In addition, this could be a module fault. I would disconnect the battery for a few hours to reset the module memories. Reconnect and start the car and see if it still occurs. If so, you need to see if you can bypass the neutral switch temporarily and see if it allows you to go into gear. Otherwise, you need to plug in a diagnostic tool and see what error codes, if any, are being displayed. It doesn't sound like a shift solenoid issue, it sounds as though the neutral switch is faulty.

good luck.
