Neutral Safety Switch - '76 CJ7

HI,

I am swapping out my column and decided to replace the neutral safety switch as it looked awful.

The replacement I picked up form NAPA looks a bit different, though seats fine. It has a couple of more prongs on either side. I plan on also putting in the Painless Wiring harness.

What are the other prongs for? Any issues with using the new switch?

Thanks,

As I recall my 76 CJ7 switch looks like yours with only one pair of terminals. I am sure the replacement is a universal fit for several vehicles.

These are to run a acc. kill circuit for other things. They added it later for safety reasons. You can ohm it out to make sure how the switchs work on those terminals.

That's not just the NSS, it's also back up lights for the shift on the column.

So, how about telling us if you have an automatic trans, what engine, ect. so someone can properly figure things out...

Guys I'm installing a new Painless harness on my '78 CJ7 and am curious where on the column the neutral safety switch is. I have a tilt column and a T18 4 speed trans. Any help would be very much appreciated.

If you don't have an automatic, you don't have a NSS on your column. On the old harness, they just put in a jumper in the socket.

No, really they did.
