Question about 2006 Mazda Tribute

Open Question

2006 Mazda Tribute. Check engine light came on, code stated the Neutral Safety Switch was bad. We replaced the switch, but now while driving, the vehicle "search" for which forward gear it wants to be in. It'll jump from 2nd to 1st, sometimes into neutral, sometimes takes off in 2nd, etc. I'm thinking the NSS was installed in the wrong position, and needs to be adjusted properly. Any advice on how to do this? Or what else the problem might be?

SOURCE: auto transmission will not engage in DRIVE gear when starting.

IT IS THE STRAINER INSIDE THE PAN IN THE TRANSMISSION,WHEN ITS COOL THE FLUID IS TO THICK TO TRAVEL AND GRITTY TO GO THROUGH THE STRAINER SCREEN,BUT WHEN THE TRANNY WARMS THE FLUID ITS THEN ABLE TO FLOW THROUGH THE SCREEN AND SHIFT PROPERLY.

It is in side the trans on top of the valve body. Why do you think you need to replace it?

Sounds like you have lost the transmission. There are bands that clamp down to lock the transmission into the gear you want. They are controlled by a hydrolic unit located in the trans. The first thing I would do is have a shop pull the trans oil pan and see if it is full of chips of metal. If so you definately have a problem. At the same time they can look at the bands and see if one of them is broken. another cause would be that metal has gotten into the hydrolic valve body and frozen the drive band portion so it will not function. You may also get lucky and have it be an internal adjustment of the drive band. Good Luck, RAC

Does the truck have difficulty putting it into park? If not I would be looking at neutral safety switch and wiring. If you cant get it into park, the B.R.I switch in steering column needs to be replaced. ..please feel free to ask any questions. .

Possible causes are the starter, starter solenoid, battery, battery cables, neutral safety switch, and ignition switch.
The starter is mounted on the engine where the engine and transmission connect.
A mechanic would check the small wire on the solenoid for voltage when you turn the key to start.

Could be the Neutral Safety Switch.

The park/neutral safety switch has two purposes,
1 not to let the engine start unless it is in park or neutral settings.
2 is when you manually switch gears, it tells the computer and the computer keeps the engine in check until you shift, then the computer compensates for that gear and so on.
I would check motor/ transmission mounts, drive shafts, Suspension bushings,struts, or steering linkage first.
