Q: I cant find nuetral safety switch 97 fiesta

asked by on

Bad nuetral safety switch car wont turn over with full battery power .

My car has 144000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If the transmission is a manual then the switch is on the clutch switch. If it is an automatic it is mounted on top of the transmission where the shift cable lever is. This vehicle may have a start inhibit relay that is part of the anti-theft system and needs to be checked also if equipped with anti-theft from the factory.
