Front of the trans under the car. It has 3 wires and screws into the case. Get the new one and match it up.

Hello, do you have a 3 speed or 4? With the 4 speed, you may need to remove the transaxle valve body to get at the trs.

My van wont crank. When I turn my key the accessory relay clicks and that is it. Everything lights, radio, windows, etc work. As the key is turned I do not have any power to little wire on starter. If I bypass the ignition relay it turns over but the fuel pump is not coming on and I have no spark. I replaced the crank sensor and the ignition module on the steering column. Neither helped. I have check all the fuses and relays. All the wires under the dash looks good. Would the neutral safety switch cut power to the starter?

For over a year now, I have had intermittent start problems on my 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT 4.0L. I replaced the starter (no difference). The WIN module was recently replaced too and did not make any difference. From the research I have done, it sounds like the neutral safety switch is the issue. When the van does not start, I move the gear shift into Neutral and it starts right up. I am trying to find out how to replace the neutral safety switch.

On this vehicle, the neutral safety switch is referred to as a transmission range sensor. It is located on the driver's side front of the transmission. I found the attached pic online to help you identify it.
