How do I do it? Where is the switch located?
I'm not too sure on your '77 but on my '84 it is located on top of the steering column where it goes into the firewall
On my '70 when it was an auto it was under the dash on the column.
prolly a stupid question but what is this switch/what does it do? /forums/images/icons/confused.gif /forums/images/icons/confused.gif /forums/images/icons/confused.gif
It only lets you start the vech. in park or neutral. On manual trans you have to have the clutch pushed in to start. I bypass them on a manual trans trail rig cause I want to be able to start in gear with the clutch out. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
i can only start it in park. mine is a lil F*cked up
Nitro you're screwed it the truck stalls running down the road as you can't slip it in neutral and crank it up. You'll have to come to a complete stop and put it in park. That's why they work in neutral and park. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
Ok, found the switch, and bypassed it. Thanks.
Nitro, mine also only starts in park (even after bypasing neutal safty switch). It seams to me that mine woun't let the key turn unless the shifter is in park. Is this your problem? If so how do we fix it?
you shouldn't be able to turn the key to the lock position exsept in park but you should be able to turn the key to start and have the engine crank in nuetral.
The neutral safety switch is easily adjustable. Usually worn out linkage causes for a no start in neutral. I don't recommend bypassing the NSS. My friend had a 77 K-10 beautifully restored. Asked me to start it for him. The truck was lifted and I reached in the window and it almost took my arm off, slamming the truck into the wall. Luckily he was clear of the path.
