NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH

1990 Dodge Dakota

Electrical problem
1990 Dodge Dakota 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 125000 miles

Hello,
I had my truck inspected and they said that the Neutral Safety Switch was not working. I have the Factory Manuals and it states only the Automatic has a Neutral Safety/Back-up Switch. My Truck is a standard and only has a back-up swicth on the transmission. Is this a combination swicth that incorporates the Neutral Safety Switch? I cannot get any information on it from the dealer.

Thanks, George

Hi: Your manual is correct. You have no neutral safety switch. However, there is a safety switch that requires the clutch to be depressed for the truck to start.
