Backup & Neutral Safety Switches

Soon after the genesis of the Fox Body Generation, the SFI Foundation began to issue various safety guidelines that impacted all areas of automotive vehicles. These SFI standards were in a response to the already aggressive vehicle safety improvements that the automotive industry had been implementing for the previous two decades.

In addition to making seat belts standard, the SFI began to delve into regulating how vehicles functioned internally. Out of all of the car’s systems, the transmission became a viable target of new SFI Foundation regulations in the early 1980s.

Taking a cue from Ford Mustangs with automatic transmissions, neutral safety switches became standard in manual transmission pony cars by 1980. Though they were not always featured in certain vehicles, Mustang neutral safety switches have become one of the most important safety features in muscle cars with manual transmissions.

Ford Mustang neutral safety switches ensure that a manual transmission vehicle cannot start unless the clutch pedal is engaged, while backup light switches assist in letting the other drivers know that you have put your vehicle in reverse and that you intended to back up.

Located on the clutch pedal, Ford Mustang neutral safety switches allow the necessary flow of electricity to reach the engine starter once the pedal is depressed, but not one second before that. Without a functional neutral safety switch, not only will your transmission go bad in a hurry, but your vehicle could inadvertently start before you are ready to take off.

Safety switches are not the only devices that are found inside the vehicle’s transmission. Your pony car is also equipped with a Mustang backup light switch, which is designed to alert the other drivers as to what your intentions are on the roadway or inside a crowded parking lot. Once they are engaged, Ford Mustang backup light switches will cause the lights at the rear of your vehicle to illuminate, which will, in turn, signal the other drivers that you are in the process of backing up your muscle car.

Without a fully functional backup light switch, another car will not be able to see your reverse lights as they are zooming past your vehicle in the parking lot. In order to keep you, your passengers, your vehicle, and the other drivers safe at all times is to ensure that your car’s neutral safety switch and your backup light switch are in working condition at all times.
