Default neutral safety switch adjustment

Replaced the switch on my 1996 SW2. Got it set to continuity in drive. Shifted through all gears while at rest. Continuity checked out again. Started in park and neutral but not reverse or other gears. Reverse lights worked. Took it for a spin and right away wouldn't shift out of first. Dropped it into 2nd then back to drive and shifted fine. Went to readjust and can't get continuity to save my life. I am using an older volt meter set at 200. All I have read here says put gear selector in drive but chiltons says neutral. Frustraded. It is an aftermarket BWD part no S26033

Most folks here say you are better off with an OE JY part.

Try opening up your original switch and see if you can tell what went bad.

Already swapped out for warranty. This is second time I've done this. First time was over a year ago. Same issues but once in a while had to start in neutral. Gavit it the finger and just drove it that way. Tags r up so need it to pass emissions. They don't seem to like check engine lights.

There is a very detailed setup for that switch that prescribes which way to rotate it to get continuity, will not work unless directions are followed and most of the aftermarket manuals are wrong. The correct instructions are in my photo gallery.

That's what I did. Knucklehead question of the day...what if any of the three wiring harnasses should or shouldn't be attached during adjustment process?

You remove the single ground wire from one of the 2 terminals you are going across to check continuity. The other 2 connectors can stay connected.

I'll check that out after work.

The new multimeter told me I had continuity but it still read 1.2ohm. Starts and shifts as it should, reverse lights work but still throwing code. Think I need a JY part. Any places tgat sell OEM stuff?

Which code are you still seeing?
1.2 Ohms is normal - you are gonna see a little contact resistance.
You would want OE PN 21022303 . . .

According to the FSM if you turn the switch the wrong way (away from the engine rather than towards) you'll get P0706, which sounds like turning it the wrong way breaks the switch

...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

Check your ground connection. Put one meter lead on a good chassis ground. Disconnect the ground lead from the TRS Switch and put your other meter lead into that connector. See how much resistance you have.

I did find some chafing and a touch of exposed wire on the single lead. I'll splice in a new lead and see what happens. Too damn hot right now to mess with it.
