The red key light is on because of a trouble code, have to get cleared by dealer. neutral light is on because the nuetra switch is bad. need manual with wire schematics to replace if u want to fix yourself.

Headlights not working, rpm gage not lighting up, neutrel light not coming on


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1.Ignition/Light Key Switch not in IGNITION position.
2.Engine Stop switch in the OFF position.
3.Discharged battery, loose or corroded connections (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank Angle Sensor tripped and Ignition/Light Key Switch not cycled to Off and then back to Ignition
5. Starter control circuit, relay or solenoid faulty.
6. Electric starter shaft pinion gear not engaging or over-running clutch slipping.

2008 Outlander cannot turn the key. Gauges come on and lights blink, key comes in and out but I cannot turn car on.


This is hard to diagnose over the net without physically seeing what is happening to the starting components with the key turned to start but could be your vehicle neutral position switch (vehicle has to sense the car in park or neutral to start) could be starter issue, ignition switch and even a low cranking amp battery. Have you tried to jump start the car?

Neutral light stays on when bike is in gear


i dont understand, the bike shouldent start in gear with the lever out it would jump forward when you hit the start button.. there is nothing wrong with the bike by what you say its just a neutral light, witch is a switch find the neutral indicator switch and replace it and your probelms will go away or test the one you have it should test 13ohms in neutral and OL in gear
let me know how you make out

My 2008 Sport Rav4 will not start at times due to


it is your neutral safety switch, no car since the dawn of time will start if it thinks it might be in gear. try putting it in neutral instead of park as a short term fix, but you should get the neutral safety switch replaced, it takes about 45 min for your dealership to do. the car being a 2008, the dealer will probably do this under your new car warranty.

Engine wont start but is turning over i believe. gear shifter broken and jammed in first or second gear.


Hi Alex Iam not too sure but I think this model had a neutral switch fitted that stopped the bike from starting in gear , and displayed a light on the clocks when the bike was in neutral .
If as you say the bike is jammed in first this is probably the cause
the jamming sounds abit more serious ?.. you may have bent the selectors and this will mean a gearnox stripdown , it is even possible you have damaged the lay shaft if the bike was travelling when you came off this would also mean a box strip down .
I dont think there is an easy answer to this one Alex loks like you will have to take the engine apart to fix this one ( one thing did strike me I had an old BSA that I slid on the gear shaft and did the same thing stuck in first turned out I had bent the gear shaft removal of the pedal and gentle tapping freed the gears off and I was able to use the bike again ? it may help I cant be sure be careful not to damage the case or the splines I used a small lump hammer and a block of 4x 4 against the shaft .. I also put a wedge behind the shaft to stop damaging the rear of the box housing ) hope this helps Regards vortash
