nuteral Safety switch?

My oldest son just bought his first Jeep, its a 1986 Comanche with a 5 speed manual and a 2.8 L engine, I can fix the engine, it needs new head gaskets and a little tlc but the woman we got it from said it failed inspection because of a bad Neutral safety switch, is this true? does that model year have a switch? if so can somebody PLEASE tell me where it is, cause I'll be damned if I can find one. Its a 2wd model and theirs hardly any body damage at all, and he really wants this thing running

NSS is only on automatics. Perhaps the clutch switch is bad?

Clutch switch? what is that and what does it do?
Oh and where is it?
And where can I get in writing that the NSS was only used on automatics? cause the inspectors around here are complete total idiots who can only go by eth book they have in front of them liek my old 76 Chevy pickup has only a lap belt and I failed for not having the shoulder harness attached or a cat under it. (truck came with neither)

It's mounted where the clutch pedal needs to be depressed to press on it. Pretty easy to see.

Thanks, but if there's no mount or switch doesn't that mean it didn't come with one? And do I need one for inspection?

I think they all came with tehm. as for inspections, you'll have to talk to the Nazis who work there.

Ok guys I found it. its NOT on the clutch Pedal its on the transmission itself on the passenger side toward the bottom with a two wire connector on it, I called Advance auto and talkes to the store manager that I have known for 20 years he described it to me while I was under the Jeep and I think we have solved teh question of weather or not it has one. Now on to teh hard part, where to get one internet has them for as little as 17 bucks, whereas Advance has one for $55, and if I'm right teh local Jeep dealer had one for 20 still gotta recheck them

Sounds like you're describing a reverse light switch.
