    88 F150 5.0L v8 2WD 5 speed manual:

    Can no longer press in the clutch and start the truck. Battery is fine. dash lights work. Amp meter shows charge. How hard is it to replace the neutral safety switch? Are there schematics/diagrams/instructions available?

Unless you ALWAYS have the truck out of gear when starting, wrench open yer wallet and spend the $8-10 and put a new one on!

I was able to loosen the switch and slide it up the shaft and use wire ties to hold it to the top of the shaft. no more problems. the only down fall is that the truck will now start in gear.

Truck is a 4x4 and a 88 Ford Ranger, when you turn the key, the starter will not engage. However, if you ratchet the clitch, sometimes the starter turns over, Is it mechanical or the computer and does...


I know on mine (88 ranger 4x4 manual transfer case and ******, 2.9 v6, short wheel base) it has what seems to me to be something similar to a nuetral safety switch. The starter will not even try to engage unless the clutch is in. You're kind of vague in your description. But if your issue is not getting it to turn over when in nuetral, and not pressing in the clutch I don't think anything is broken, that it is a safety feature from Ford

Neutral safety switch....I think


The switch is located at the top of the clutch pedal assembly, above your feet. Its a little cramped, but its a simple dc two wire switch, you should be able to check it with a meter for power and to see if the switch does indeed need replacement. If thats the problem, when you see the new switch, you'll know it goes in, very easy. good luck

Wiring


It is not downloadable, but the library will probably have a Mitchell repair manual with wiring diagrams.
