Wow, no DTC stated, so we must guess which one, and IS KEY to the cause..
ah , smog fails for CEL glowing
said but true
and it dont lie, the switch , conn. or wires to it are bad.
the real question is where is it and how to test it.
you can google neutral safety switch all day and learn what it does.
The TJ jeep
has. the 42RLE box.
TRS it has. "transmission range, switch"
here it is.





My 97 starts fine but check engine code says neutr - 26131331-sfgrgt5j1genusl55xvezfzt-4-0.jpg seen here
TRANSMISSION RANGE
SENSOR
DESCRIPTION
The Transmission Range Sensor (TRS) is mounted
to the top of the valve body inside the transmission
and can only be serviced by removing the valve body
assembly. The electrical connector extends through
the transmission case (Fig. 249





26131331-sfgrgt5j1genusl55xvezfzt-4-1.jpgREMOVAL
(1) Disconnect the TRS connector.
(2) Remove valve body assembly from vehicle. (OOPS)!
(3) Remove the manual shaft seal (Fig. 250).
(5) Slide TRS off of manual valve shaft.
INSTALLATION
(1) Install the TRS to the manual shaft. Make sure
TRS locating pin rests in manual valve bore slot.
(2) Install the TRS/manual shaft retaining screw
and torque to 5 N·m (45 in. lbs.) torque.
(3) Install the manual shaft seal.
(4) Install valve body to the transmission.

my points! given above. facts.
check fuses first.we check the voltages second at p/n sense pins.check for corrosion on the 3 pins related,even re-seat all connectors and pray it goes away cleaning all 3 with real electrical conn spray.does this help?

btw , you never asked a question?
1: how can I fix this.?
2: who, can? (any ASE shop on earth)
3: what parts do I need? (a TRS)
4: what are the steps. (posted)
so i guessed, 1 and 3 and 4.

  • Neutral safety switch sends a signal to the on-board computer to allow the engine to start and to engage the transmission
  • When not replaced, vehicle may experience no start and/or transmission will not shift out of park

My digital dash lights have gone out i cant see anything on the dashboard at all, what is my problem i have an 89 ninety eight oldsmobile 4 door


hi ther .it sounds like you your dash lites have been dimmed. you should be able to turn your head lite switch to the right and they should come back on. or there might be a dial to turn under the headlite switch to brighten the dash lites. but there is a switch that dims or brightens your dash lites. hope this helps. have a good day

How do i get to the revers lites in my 1989 buick lasabre


On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced
