You probably just need to install a new nutral safety switch it cheap and fairly easy to replace. usually it will just keep you from being able to start your car not cause it to cut off. i cant be for sure that is your underlying psoblem but like i said its usually cheap and easy to replace. This may be worth a try since you are getting a fault code for it you could at least rule tjhat out and you wont get that code anymore. In case you dont already know your nuetral safety switch is just a sensor that only allows you to start your car when it is only in park or neutral and not and drive so your car wont try to run away while you start it. This may not be your problem but if you are getting a code for it something must be wrong with it.

At a stop light the car will cut off. Autozone used there code scanner and it says code P1780 and P0727. what is going on with the car.


Hi sirlowdown, I'm glad to help!

I don't know what vehicle you have but I'll take a best guess at this anyway. The P0727 is an Engine Speed Input Circuit No Signal. This is why your engine dies when you stop the vehicle. The reason is because the engine controller has no idea what RPM's the Engine is running so it dies and your lucky because I don't understand why your engine is even running without this signal. The engine controller must see various sensor and signals to calculate what to do next and if even one of these sensors are interrupted it can cause all kinds of issues. This could be the "Engine Speed Sensor" The Wiring, The Connector, The Engine Controller. All these things must be checked individually to know which one is causing the problem. The other code P1780 is a "Park Neutral Switch Malfunction". This can cause the controller to NOT KNOW which position the shifter is in and cause the engine to stall as well and again I have know idea why the starter will even turn the engine over if it doesn't know its in the 'PARK or NEUTRAL" position. Both of these issues must be checked and repaired before your engine will operate normally. Hope this helps and have an awesome day.

I have a 1996 Blazer 4X44.3 engine 4L60E trans.the engine is new with only 900 miles on it. The trans is new with 386 miles on it. The Park Neutral Switch on the trans is brand new. The prndl printed...


I am no blazer expert but if only the second gear lights up, it sounds like the transmission either thinks its hot because of a bad temp switch or its low level switch is messed up. I would check all switches and systems on the tranny.

Ck engine light on - no code


Check engine light with no codes usually means a PCM reset is happening. EBP shorting, ICP shorting, aftermarket "performance chip". PIDS need to be monitored to eliminate sensors. IDMs (Injector Driver Modules) can also cause this. IDM's are separate from the PCM/ECM (engine computer).

1780 code


P1780 Park/Neutral Position Switch Malfunction (Only For A/T)
This code is related to a malfunction with the park neutral position switch, it's located on the transmission.
It maybe easier to get a Chilton manual from the autoparts store to locate the sensor/switch. The book runs about $20.
Replacing the switch/sensor may resolve the reverse light problem also.
