Product Description

Neutral Safety Switch for all 1967, 1968 and 1969 Mustangs built after December 15th, 1966 with a C4 or C6 Automatic Transmission.

If your 1967-1969 Mustang isn’t starting, one possible reason may be that the neutral safety switch has failed. Also known as a backup light switch, this neutral safety switch for 1967-1969 Mustangs built after December 15th, 1966 disables the starter operation when the c4 or c6 automatic transmission is not in neutral or park. If the engine was allowed to start in gear your Mustang would immediately begin to move once the engine started.

Problems with the neutral safety switch may present themselves as the Mustang taking multiple attempts to start, starting in the wrong gear or having to tweak the shifter in a particular way to start the engine. Prevent these sorts of problems with a brand-new neutral safety switch for your Mustang.

This neutral safety switch, or backup light switch, is an amazing reproduction of the original unit and will help keep your Mustang running as good as new. It features the two alignment holes that are correct to the factory switch.

Tech Tip: Make sure that you route the neutral safety switch wiring away from the exhaust. A common failure is caused by getting too close to the hot exhaust which can melt the wiring.

*Not for use on 1967 Mustangs built before December 15th, 1966.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy install very happy with the design and its a very close cosmetic match to original. I lined up the centerpiece slot with the position of the one in the old switch I removed - and it started the first try. no playing around with adjustments -
