neutral safety switch bypass

I have acquired an engine wiring harness from a '95 S10 4.3L blazer with an automatic transmission, and I am running a standard transmission. Is the wiring for the neutral safety switch that is supposed to be hooked up to the automatic going to cause problems?

If so, how would I go about bypassing it?

Re: neutral safety switch bypass

I not sure if it is on the linkage or the tran. Never dealt with an s10 nuetral safety switch. if I'm right it just touches ground to tell the stater if it is in Nuetral/ park or in gear. You should be able to extend the wire to your nuetral safety location and splice it in.

I believe that it hooks up on the driver side of the transmission. But I already have my clutch safety switch bypassed; and want to do the same with this switch because I don't care about that one. All I am concerned is the engine will fire with or without that neutral safety switch being there.

Re: neutral safety switch bypass

as long as the starter wire going to and from the switch are connected together it should run. I don't know if this is the case for a 95, but in the newer ones if the p/n switch isn't connected it'll turn on the mil. worst case though you could hook the switch up and leave it in the park position and secure it out of the way somewhere.

yeah my dad and I are going back to the junkyard to pull the switch from that blazer that we got the wiring from, and we are going to just put it in park and zip tie it away (especially from the exhaust)
