neutral safety switch

hey there!

on a 94 grand cheroke 5.2 v8, with a 46rh transmission, the vehicle will only sometimes not start in park, other times it will..

it, so far, has always started in neutral..

so i removed the NSS, and clean it, and i still have the same problem, so i changed the fluid in the transmission and still it only works every now and again, is it possible that it could be wiring at all??,

is there a way to check for continuity between the 3 posts on the nss or the connector at all using an ohmeter???

ok, i bought a new nss, and as i removed the 3 pin electrical connector, one wire on it pulled through..., right at the end of the connector so there is no way of connecting it back together!~!!

i now know that this was why it would not always start in park, because that wire was really loose and ready to break off.

anyways, ill have to go get a new connector for the nss and then my problem will be solved!
