How do you wire a 20A switch which comes with a neutral wire when only 2 wires are available for the circuit?

You never switch a neutral wire, only hots. hooking both hot and neutral to the same switch will result in a short when the swith is turned on.

There is a complete path for the electricity to flow. The opposite of an open circuit. If a light switch is on and the light comes on, the circuit is closed. If the switch is turned off, the light goes off because the circuit is open.

If the "hot" wire comes into contact with the neutral wire it will cause, what is known in the trade, as a short circuit. A high capacity of current will be drawn and the protective circuit breaker will trip.

A circuited switch, which operates with sound of clapping hands or something similar; ie. the switch comes to 'on' position when clapped once or twice, and to 'off' position when again clapped once or twice (depends on circuit design)

Park neutral switchLook down from the battery on the front of the transmission housing. Has lever and a linkage that comes from above, and big multiwire plug on top. can get at parts store, but really expensive. Junk yard? in Toyota manual (available at parts store) theres a scheme for testing switch before you install, and not all that hard.

The 2008 Chevy Cobalt comes stock with a neutral interior color. The neutral color is unique for the 2008 and it is not available also on the 2006, 2007 or 2009.
