Having problems with your Chevrolet 1500 ?
I have a chevy 305 with an older transmission with no neutral safety. The starter that i have has 3 prongs the only way to have the system work is to short the starter and it will start the engine is there a way to bypass the neutral safety on the solenoid
IIf you can unplug the neutral safety switch.Run a jumper wire,from one wire to another in the plug--in,on the wiring harness.Or to the correct wire that feeds the starter solenoid,on the terminal on the solenoid marked s, this engages the solenoid! Make sure that you find the wire that is hot with the key turned as far clockwise as it will go.This would be the starting circuit wire,from the ign switch. The other terminal on the solenoid would be for the ignition on start only,marked i for ignition. If you have Electronic ign. you wont need this hooked up.You will need a test lite or volt meter to find the correct wire with voltage.To power the solenoid.If you can not unplug the wiring you can cut the wires and soldier them together,bypassing the switch.
The neutral safety switch is on the transmission not the starter. If you suspect it's not working, simply unplug it. Just REMEMBER that the truck will now start in ANY gear not just park or neutral. Hope this helps.
