No, if it starts on its own without you turning the ignition switch then the ignition switch is defective.

A bad neutral switch will not allow a car to start. The switch is there specifically to stop someone from starting a car in gear.

You don't. The ignition is required to start the car. If it fails you need a new ignition switch.

The ignition switch is where you insert your key to start car

yes, it is a neutral safety switch. When this switch has an open circut, it will not let the car start. The switch should be located under the dash on the top to the cluch pedal.

If the clutch switch failed then the car will not start unless the switch is bypassed. The purpose of a clutch safety switch is to prevent the car from dangerously starting, so when it malfunctions that car will not start without it switch off.

User Avatar

put simply you just run a wire from the switch directly to the starter bypassing the key start as you do so.

A bad safety switch can have one of two symptoms. Either the car will start in any gear, or the car will not start at all.

The neutral safety switch prevents you from cranking the car in any other gear than park or neutral. Sometimes this will fail and you will have to manualy flip the switch. also there is a possibility that the car will only start in park and never start if it is in Netural.

One of the signs is the security light will stay on and the car won't turn over. For a while the light will eventually go out and then the car will start. But as the switch totally fails the car won't start anymore.

If the car will start in neutral but not in park then you may have a bad transmission safety switch. That switch confirms that the car is in neutral or park before it allows the 'start' signal from the key switch to reach the solenoid.
