Neutral Safety Switch issues
So I have read a bunch of the other NSS threads and I think I know what I need to do, but I have an additional issue that I didn't see any reference to.
98 XJ 4sp auto
-intermittenant no start
-will start with key turned to start and move shifter slightly down toward reverse... kind of a contortionist move for me.
Here's what's different, or at least not previously mentioned in other threads:
-shift indicator line on console does not line up with actual gear you select. For example, indicator is not shown (further up) when in park, and indicates neutral when in D4.
So, my suspicion is that I simply need to adjust the shift linkage and/or adjust the NSS. Glass half full, maybe?
Next possiblility is replace (or remove and clean) NSS. Maybe adjust linkage as well.
Hoping it's not any worse than that. Am I on the right track?
