Faulty Nuetral Safety Switch

Unread postby RobC on Wed Feb 01, 2017 7:06 pm

Turn of the key a few weeks ago to fire up the beast got the big NUTHIN.

Followed the manual decision tree and by a series of hot wires on the start relay, determined it was a the Neutral Safety switch. Ordered new one ( and a new starter relay) and swapped em both out. The PO had scabbed in a ground from the NSS terminal (ground) to the chassis and basically bypassed it.

reason for the post is: If your quick with your thumb- you can swap it out without draining the tranny fluid.

Only a mild geyser of pink fluid when I pulled it out with my left hand and put the new one in with my right hand.

Upon inspection the NSS switch plunger was stuck in the depressed position. I think the new NSS was $14 and the start relay was $12.

I need to do the shift-shaft seal but I think I need to drain the pain for that. Anybody done it from the top? My rig has no floor so I can get to it really easily. that seal is a bit more delicate though and I won't be able to manhandle it like the NSS
