SOURCE: what wires do I need

The wires on the Transmission Range Sensor that control the ability to crank the starter are the BLACK/GREEN wire at Pin 6 and the wire at Pin 10 which is either BLACK/GREEN or BLACK WHITE depending on your model. (build - date and transmission type)

With all that said, I think it only fair to warn you that bypassing these wires will set codes in your Engine Control Module. It is not going to like it if there is power at pin 10 with the transmission in reverse or any of the forward gears. This may also cause your transmission to not shift properly because the ECM will not know for sure what gear you are in.

Where is the neutural safety switch located. The one that allows you to operate the auto transmission when the brake is applied?


Hi, welcome to FixYa.com my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

Sounds like you are looking for the shift interlock solenoid located on the steering column. If the car won't shift out of park first check your brake lights and make sure they work. This is normally caused by a faulty brake light switch located on the brake pedal or a broken wiring connector to the brake switch. You can bypass this by putting the car in neutral then starting it.

I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please as

Need location of neutral safty switch on my 1990 cadilac broughm 350 engin e


The neutral safety switch is located on the top and toward the base of the steering column almost to the floorboard.

To remove or install the neutral safety switch be sure to place the shifter in the neutral position, then dis-connect the wire connector at the neutral safety switch, then remove the securing screws and then remove the neutral safety switch.

Install the new neutral safety switch and do not over-tighten the securing screws, then remove the alignment pin and re-connect the wire connector to the neutral safety switch. (be sure not to remove the alignment pin until the neutral safety switch has been installed)

Check to be certain that the vehicle only starts in "Park" or "Neutral". Here is an image to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.
