1 Answer

You have to rotate the neutral safety switch by holding it and rotating the center portion. There is a small hole on the switch and when you can put a small drill bit about an inch into the shaft that is where it needs to be connected and lined up. You need to put your transmission in neutral when remounting the neutral switch. Best recommendation is do your best to keep the drill bit in the switch so the position doesn't change.
