Question about 1989 Ford Ranger
My husband needed to fix the clutch in his 89 Ford Ranger. When he put the tranny and clutch back in the truck it would not start. Is there maybe something he forgot to hook up causing this problem?
The nuetral safety switch would make since if it was an automatic, if he did not get his clutch sensor plugged in then that could be an issue

Neutral safety switch is my best guess (about 98% sure on this one) It is located somewhere on the transmission (sorry about the vagueness). It prevents you from starting your vehicle in gear. If left unplugged the truck will not start at all. All I can include is a picture of the top (connection) on the switch if it is of any help.

i think this will work, with the clutch perminantly engaged it is difficult to disengage gears, fixing the clutch should make gear chaging better.
