want to bypass the neutral safety relay. is it possible???
My car has 123432 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
The neutral safety switch is built into the transmission selector switch, and the power from the ignition switch goes straight through the switch when you are in park and neutral to the starter motor solenoid. There is no good reason to bypass the selector switch since the vehicle may start and run in any gear. If you did, this is a big safety hazard. A new neutral safety switch, if this is the problem, is very inexpensive to replace and will be a lot safer. If for some reason you bypassed it and left the car in drive or reverse, the car could start and take off on you without warning. So while it is possible to do this bypass, this could be dangerous and not worth the safety hazard.
