The switch is mounted on the top of transmission. The shift linkage goes through it, so you have to remove the linkage. Not hard, three fasteners. One for the linkage, two for the switch.
Easy to get to, just make sure you buy one before you try to get it replaced. It's a LOT easier to have an idea on how it's attached before you try removing it. It's right by the linkage kinda below the throttle body, on the driver's side lean over and look down in a hole where you see a bunch of linkages. My 1993 Tempo had the same problem. It took 5 min to replace and the switch was $15.

Ok I found the switch and it is located as described above. It isn't in the most user friendly place to work on and despite having instructions on how to adjust it ( i will put them at the end) I decided that it would be too much work to try. Instead I decided to bypass the switch. It only took five minutes and barely required any cursing at all.
Unplug the connector on the neutral start switch.
2. There are 4 wires going to this connector. Cut the end two, strip them and connect them together with an alligator clip. If the car starts now those are the right two wires. It was the outside end two on mine, i think the red and white but not sure about the color.
3. Tape everything up and make sure the new loose wires are out of the way.
4. MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN PARK! OR NEUTRAL! BEFORE STARTING THE CAR FROM NOW ON! IT WILL START IN ANY GEAR NOW!
If you were able to disable the switch then you should be smart enough to operate your vehicle without this safety device but make sure you warn anyone who drives your car and be extra careful from now on. THAT SWITCH WAS THERE FOR A REASON, but if your car is as much of a wreck as mine i understand why you wouldn't want to replace anymore parts.
Incase anyone is interested here are the instructions from the book for adjusting and testing the switch.
To test the neutral start switch connect the probes of a continuity tester or ohmmeter to the outside two terminal blades there should be continuity between these blades in neutral or park.
To adjust the Neutral start switch, loosen the bolts, place the lever in Neutral position and insert a no. 43 (.089 inch) drill bit into the adjustment hole, then tighten the bolts.
I hope that helps someone.
