2000 Chevy Impala 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 97113 miles
Hi, I'm working on a 2000 chevy impala that the starter does not engage/turnover when I turn the key to "on / start position. It's an automatic, but I'm not sure where the neutral safety switch is.I thought I found it up under the dash/steering column actuated by shifter arm. When you have the dash panels off and out of the way, your looking at the shifter lever/cable connection which also has a rod branching off to a switch/unit that has two wires (16 ga. I believe) connected to it.I thought this switch was the neutral safety switch.I disconnected, jumped the wires and turn the key and still no power at small terminal on solenoid. There is power to one wire when key is turned to "on' position. It also has the movable steering column.
Can you tell me if this is the "right" switch or where it is?It's not on top of tranny where shifter cable/rod connect on transmission. Or any other suggestions to what it might be?
thanks in advance, I'm headed to get a repair manual now, but need all the help I can get on a Monday.
have the same problem?
