Look under the dash at the bottom of your steering column you will see the shifting rod.You should be able to see neutral switch.It is not hard to change.

Where is the safety switch for a 2006 chevy malibu


Safety switch ? For what ? Park neutral safety switch ,is this what you mean ? Your vehicle not starting ? There is a lot more involved then just that switch.
Circuit Description
For ignition switch power modes refer to Body Control System Description and Operation. Once the ignition is placed in the Run/Crank position, the control circuit of the Run/Crank relay is grounded by the body control module (BCM). With the Run/Crank relay switch closed, battery positive voltage flows through it and on to the park/neutral position (PNP) switch. With the PNP switch in either the Park or Neutral position, battery positive voltage will flow to the starter relay coil supply voltage input terminal of the powertrain control module and the coil side of the starter relay. Placing the ignition in the START position sends a message to the engine control module (ECM)/powertrain control module (PCM) requesting engine start. If the ECM/PCM has determined that the transmission is in Park or Neutral and theft is not active, it will ground the control circuit of the starter relay. Battery positive voltage will then flow through the switch side of the starter relay to the S terminal of the starter solenoid, cranking the engine. For remote vehicle start (RVS) information, refer to Keyless Entry System Description and Operation.

How to bypass the neutral safety switch on a 2000 Chevy Silverado Z 71 4 x 4


The purple wire with a white stripe goes to the starter from the neutral safety switch. I believe it is the yellow wire at the neutral safety switch that will have the the signal from the ignition switch for the start signal. ( Test this yellow wire with a test light while holding the key in the start position to see if it lights to make sure yellow is the correct color ) and join the wires together. This will by-pass the neutral safety switch

Hi, what you would need to do is check the ignition switch to see if it is passing power to the start wire. If it is, then the wire from the ignition switch to the park/neutral switch is bad. You can trace the wire up to the ignition switch from the park/neutral switch. It's bolted to the side of the column and is not hard to swap out. Cost is only $10.

you need to check the ign wire to the starter for power. check wire under dash for power and if you have to run a new wire from ign switch to starter selonoid. switch is on top of steering column under dash.

Neutral safety switch What is it. Son pulled key out of ignition with the tramission not in park.Can not even turn ignition switch over. Is the neutral safety switch the problem


A neutral safety switch will stop the path of battery power going to the starter motor if the gear shift isn't in park or neutral. I dont believe your issue is here, I would say the ignition lock assembly.

Check the neutral safety switch, your vehicle should have it mounted on the steering colum. A purple wire runs to this switch from the starter and a yellow wire runs from the neutral switch to your ignition.

I have a 1995 pontiac grand prix sometime it will start and sometimes it won't. i thought it was the starter solenoed so i bought a new starter but it is still doing it. when i turn the key everything...


Given the age of the car I'd check the neutral safety switch and the shifter linkage it could be causing the neutral safety switch to get a bad reading. After that I'd check the ignition switch itself. I don't remember if the '95 had a starter switch relay but you might check that too.

How to check the ignition switch?


There are some fusible links mounted with the starter on the cable,check to see if they are burned into,pull on them they will pull apart like taffy.Also,check the neutral safety switch ,try in neutral ,see if it will start.Make sure the negative battery cable is good,this can cause the problem also,see if there is 12 volts on the purple wire on the starter solenoid when starting the engine,if not,check the neutral safety switch,if it is good,replace the ignition switch.

Wiring Diagram 1998 Chevy S-10 starter replacement


The starter has one large cable from the battery positive, and a wire that goes to the solenoid (Part of the starter) that becomes hot when the key ignition is turned to start. This also passes through the neutral safety switch. (So it wont start in gear) Not sure if this is what you need, a little vague.
