1998 Grandprix Neutral safety switch,AC compressor and Radiator cooling fans all stop working intermittently at the same time. Only happens during cranking. Could it be a bad ignition switch.


The cranking position of the ignition switch works through the neutral safety switch before the starter itself . The AC when on will automatically run the cooling fans . During cranking they should be out or off for the starter to receive it's high current draw .

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

I have a 1989 mustang gt convertible. I have no power to the s connector on the starter solenoid. I have installed a new starter relay on the column, New neutral safety switch and new started solonoid on...


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.

1994 chevy k1500 4x4. won't even turn over. replaced starter, battery is fully charged. if i bypass the key switch and use a screw driver on the starter the starter works fine. is there an ignition relay...


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.

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.
