HELP: Feed from neutral safety switch to solenoid
« on: August 16, 2022, 11:41:55 AM »
Is the feed off the neutral safety switch continuous, once past the two-prong connection, all the way to the solenoid? When the solenoid would no longer engage, I thought the relatively new neutral safety switch had gone bad. I bypassed the neutral switch by bridging the ignition switch feed to the existing solenoid feed...alas, still no activation at the solenoid.

I then installed a jumper wire from the solenoid to the outlet side of the neutral switch and, voila, the solenoid powered up off the ignition switch and I was able to start the car.

In my wiring diagram I see no junction on the purple feed to the solenoid other than the one directly above the pedal assembly. Is there one further downstream I should look for. I'm trying to avoid tearing into the harness.
