Neutral safety switch 3 wire colors/or bypass
Recently I had a Park neutral switch going bad code on my 2001 WJ Grand Cherokee 4.0 I bought the new switch, but when I went to change it out, the 3 wires on the connector are all exposed and frayed/melted. So I went to my local Jeep dealership to get a new CONNECTOR, but they can't get them. So I went to my local junkyard... no WJ's. I cut the end of the connector off, tried to splice in some fresh wires and heatshrunk the exposed wires. Upon rehook up, it will not start. I don't know if I mixed up the order of the three wires or what. Kinda hard to tell the exact colors of the wires (being under the car and covered in grease), but I think they are GREEN, YELLOW striped with unknown color, and TAN. Am I close here? I can't find any wiring diagram for it in the back of the Haynes manual. I'm guessing when I reconnected it all, that it's either wrong, or the connector is so frayed that it's not getting any juice. I've read about bypassing it by grounding the center wire, but I don't know which one was the center wire now. If I do bypass it, will I have problems with my backup lights? Will my check engine light turn off finally?
I noticed that when you snap the connector back on, there is no catch/stop so is it possible to put it on backwards/upside down?
I need help here. This is driving me crazy. Anyone got a diagram with color codes or advice about bypassing it?
