The safety switch is located under the radiator belt. You can trace the positive wire from the battery and it will end up at the safety switch.

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

Automatic transmissions have what is called a Neutral Safety switch. This eliminates the possibility of accidentally starting your vehicle in reverse or any forward gear. The vehicle will only start in park or neutral. Chris

On top of the steering column near the firewall under the dash. There will be a metal rod going into the bottom of the switch.

NO it has nothing to do with the engine dieing. You have other problems.

Two different switches, two locations. 1. The Neutral Safety Switch prevents the shift leaver from been moved out of park unless the ignition is on and the break peddle is applied. On 1991 it is located inside the plastic counsel below the shift handle. Failure of this switch may cause your vehicle not to start. 2. Not to be confused with the above is the Neutral/Reverse switch. One of its functions are to activate the reverse lights. It is located at the end of the shift cable on the transmission (1991 AUTO) facing the rad. MC

First unplug the wire harness from the switch. Using the correct size socket (1" if I remember correctly) remove the switch counterclockwise from the transmission. Install the new one in reverse order.
