Transmission 98 mazda 626 shuts off when transmission is engaged

Answers :

Sounds like the neutral safety switch is faulty. The engine should not start with the trans. in gear. It seems as though the neutral switch is not disengaging when the engine is running and then put in gear.

If so, you need to see if you can bypass the neutral switch temporarily and see if it allows you to go into gear. Otherwise, you need to plug in a diagnostic tool and see what error codes, if any, are being displayed. It doesn't sound like a shift solenoid issue, it sounds as though the neutral switch is faulty.
