With the bike NOT in neutral, you must be holding the CLUTCH lever in to start. Otherwise, nada. If you look at the inside section of that lever, two little wires come out of the little boot--to which connect a switch. That'd be the faulty one. To test, leave the clutch disengaged, use a multimeter/ohm meter and check for continuity or open on the switch directly--remove the wires first, they just push on. after measured with handle untouched, hold in the lever and measure again. this time it should be a closed circuit, registering continuity. If not, swap it. Dont simply jump these two wires--the bike WILL just jump up if you do that and try to start and the bike's NOT in neutral.

    There is also a side stand safety switch. If the side stand is down and the bike is in gear the starter should not engage. This is also by design to prevent one from riding off with the side stand down. In most cases the side stand down while in gear will kill the motor, so it stands to reason that the starter won't engage since the motor can't be started anyway.

Your neutral safety switch is bad.
  • Neutral safety switch sends a signal to the on-board computer to allow the engine to start and to engage the transmission
  • When not replaced, vehicle may experience no start and/or transmission will not shift out of park,here's the part.

Bike dies when put in gear


Hi Ron, I would check the clutch interface switch at the clutch lever it sounds as if it is either faulty, broken, come loose or stuck. Some bikes have loads of problems with this beastie. Pull in the clutch lever then try spraying some lube between the lever and the stock and see if you can see the switch plunger move. You might have to remove the clutch lever completely to see this if you do then you should be able to push the plunger in by finger and see it spring back out. The whole switch does in some cases come loose if you look for 2 wires going into the clutch lever stock see it the thing they go into is loose or pushed out, normally they just push back with a slight click. When you operate the clutch lever the switch plunger should move out allowing the bike to start in gear. On my Suzuki you have to operate the clutch lever to start even in neutral. Hope this helps

What is a neutral safety switch?


The Neutral Safety switch monitors the position of your gear selector lever and either interrupts or allows the starting circuit in your car or truck to do its job. On newer vehicles it may also monitor the position of the brake pedal to make sure that the vehicle is in park or neutral AND that your foot is on the brake.

If your vehicle is equipped with a neutral safety switch, it should NOT start UNLESS the transmission is in Neutral or Park. On the other hand your vehicle SHOULD start when it is in Neutral or Park. If your car will start in Neutral but not in Park, you have a bad switch. Also, if your car or truck will only start by turning the key to the start position and wiggling the gear selector lever, your neutral safty switch is in need of replacement.

The nuetral safety switch is usually found near the gear shifter. If your car has the gear shift on the column, then the neutral safety switch is usully mounted on the steering column near the brake pedal. On floor mount or console mount vehicles you will find the nuetral safety switch mounted near or on the shifter mechanism.

My 1992 honda accord will not start. when its in park the transmission light that tells you what gear your in is blinking around D4. not sure if its a relay switch or a sensor or something wrong with the...


When you shift does the trans light change? It might be your shifter not registering the right gear. Put car in neutral and push car to see if it is in neutral. Or try to start it when it says its in neutral.

If my car wont go into gear what could be the cause? When i got the 1992 honda accord lx i was having to start out in 2nd than 3rd now it wont shift and i cant go past 70 without it revving up.


Normally you should not be able to start the car without it being in 'Neutral' or 'Park'. First try changing the starter inhibitor switch on the transmission. Next check out the selector rod for the gear position, this connects between the bottom of gear selector and the input selector shaft on the transmission. Next check out you fluid level in the auto-box on the autobox fluid dipstick. If low you can add extra fluid by the dipstick tube. Ordinarily it is suggested that the fluid level is checked when the engine is running but in park.cannot start the car unless in gear I suggest you do not do this for safety reasons.

Ignition will not shut off to remove key unless battery is disconnected. 1992 Honda Accord LX


You have either a bad ignition switch or the actual tumbler (key slot) is worn out. Or, see if you can get the key out when you put it in NEUTRAL (with the Parking Brake on). If this lets the key out then the problem is within your Interlock Control system.
