SOURCE: how do i diagnose a faulty neutral switch?? light

The neutral switch is lockated at the left side of the engine. Should have a blue wire... Comes together with a black wire ( oil pressure switch ) in a 2-position connector to the main harness.
Try if works fine with the blue wire at the ground and loose. If then everything is OK, the neutral switch is out of use.
There is also a diode set in the circuitry. With a green wire coming from the side stand switch, the blue wire from the neutral switch and a lightblue wire going to the dashboard. +12V on this light blue wire should lit up neutral lamp at the dashboard.

Hope it helps.

SOURCE: bike wont start/turnover neutral light goes out

Did the starter work when it was jumped by a car battery? If so, the problem is probably the battery in the bike. Take the battery to an automotive parts house and have it tested. Usually, they'll test the battery for free.

What is the CCA of your battery? Those big engines are hard to start and you may not have a battery with enough "Cold Cranking Amps" to turn the engine over. The old Harley Sprint (1973 & '74) was notorious for this. You really had to have a strong battery in that bike for he electric starter to work.

Some bikes have wiring that disables the starter if the transmission is not in neutral. Check on this as well.

Sound like the neutral switch is buggered? a lot of people bypass this by simply unplugging it from the loom. The pulling in the clutch to start is another safety thing & often that switch craps out & gives problems.

Both my clutch & neutral switches are bypassed as there are no spares shops in the desert.

Two voltage circuits at starter motor. One comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the start position and is wired through neutral switch for automatic tranny. The starter motor should ground through engine block. You can use a test light to check for voltage. Any testing at starter motor make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.
The problem could be your neutral switch, but, w/o testing, I can't be sure?

Not resigtering it is in park. so no start no crank no click no nothing . loss on communication with the bcm is the dtc. charged battery and still nothing.

Try starting it in neutral. If it starts OK and every time, replace the range sensor/ neutral safety switch, on the transmission.. After that replace the RF wheel bearing/sensor. Have the codes cleared . See if the Communication code goes away.

2000 Mazda MPV, does not start and the transmision panel is bliking some time

Usually this is due to the position of the gear shift, brake or clutch. Most vehicles require one or more of the following to start the engine:

1) Transmission in "Park" (or "Neutral" if a standard)
2) Clutch Pressed in fully (if a standard)
3) Pressure on Brake Pedal (on some newer vehicles - enough to make brake lights come on)

If you're doing what you used to have to do normally to start the car, you may have a bent linkage that prevents the car's electronics from detecting that the car is indeed in park. If an auto transmission, try pushing the shifter further towards park - or in some cases - more towards the Neutral position.

2006 jeep liberty dying randomly. Oil change and new air filter. About to change spark plugs and wires. No gauge lights, no sputtering. Just turns off randomly, starts right back up when I put in neutral...

My 2006 Liberty has a similar issue. The oil light beeps and then the engine shuts off. I put the car in park and it restarts and the oil light goes off. I had the oil, filter, and lines checked and everything checked out. The mechanic thinks it may be the oil sensor going out and that for safety reasons the engine shuts down when the oil light comes on.

When I put the key into the ignition in the on position the oil light comes on but I can't seem to get the bike into neutral so that the neutral indicator is on, so therefore I can't start the bike...

Yamaha 650 Maxim Won't Turnover

Make sure the battery is fully charged and the battery connections are free of corrosion and tight. A fully charged 12 volt battery should read at least 13.25 volts. Also check the fuses, making sure each one is not 'blown' and is making proper electrical contact in the fuse box.
If the above items are correct but it still won't crank over with the electric starter, locate the starter solenoid and - using a large screwdriver - carefully touch it across the two large cable connections on the top. If the starter spins over, then you've got a bad starter solenoid. If you've got voltage to the top of the solenoid and the starter still doesn't spin, then you've got either a bad starter motor or a bad electrical connection going to it.

01 chevy cavalier: oil light coming on when car is stopping

Could be that your Oil pump is getting clogged or may not be fuctioning properly. Isnt getting enough power while at a low idle because its clogged.... When your stopped or in your driveway with the light on put your car in neutral and set the parking break and rev the motor up to 2200 RPM's and see if the light turns off.. If i does then that is most likely your problem.
