The Neutral Safety Switch on the 1997 Mazda 626 (and similar) is located behind the clutch petal arm. The petal is connected to the clutch master cylinder pushrod which goes through the firewall. Right below it is a little black box with a short white plastic rod sticking out of it touching the petal arm and a wire harness attached to the box. The box is the switch. The white rod is the spring loaded part of the switch that is thrown when you push on the petal. Two small bolts hold it in place. It is quite hard to get to and see. You will need to push the driver seat back all the way. A small flashlight or other lighting device is needed. You will be on your back, upsidedown, and in a fairly uncomfortable position. It is a non-serviceable item and should be replaced if it is defective. However, if one is careful it can be taken apart and cleaned. THE FOLLOWING SHOULD BE ONLY A TEMPORARY FIX AS IT BYPASSES THE SAFEFY MEASURE DESIGNED INTO THE CAR: If the rod is broken, it can be short ciruited to start the car by removing the spring and pushing in the remaining part of the rod.

If it is a manual transmission it should have a clutch safety switch not a neutral switch. Usually found at the upper end of the clutch pedal under dash area

switch is either on side of transmission, or under the dash

The autos do not have a safety switch....They have a sensor located in the trans itself that tells the ecu if its in neutral/park.....I believe its a 3 pin plug going into the trans itself,.....trace it and see where it leads.....You may be able to hook up a toggle switch..

The fuel safety switch in a 1994 Mazda MX6 is located on the inside of the fuel tank. This is very tricky to locate, so it would be better to leave it up to the professionals toÊmaintain.

It is on the left side of the transmission near the tail shaft. Just screws in and has two wires. Hope this helped.

These are usually located on or near the top of the transmission near the shift rail area, close to the shift lever. Sometime this location can be on the side, near the top or closer to the front or rear of the case, but still near the top. They can also be combined in the same switch housing as the backup light switch. Good luck!

It is wired inline with the Crank wire going from the ignition to the starter solenoid located on the starter. Clutch up --> open switch (no start); Clutch down --> closed switch (start) Very basic for this year of truck.

To change the neutral safety switch, also known as sensor in a 2000 Mazda, park the car on a flat ground, turn the car off and put on the E-brakes. Disconnect the power begins with a negative cable then the positive cable and takes off the battery clamp. Disconnect the plug and the shifter cable then loosen the 22mm nut on the sensor. Remove the washer and the linkage then remove the neutral safety switch directly upwards. Replace the new sensor and repeat the reverse process by tying the plug back then the shifter cable, and then the battery plate, and you it's done.
