Neutral Safety Switch-?

I'm lookin for ideas/insite as to why my Bronco is going through neutral safety switches. The reason I say switches is because in the last 2-3 months I have replaced it three times and four times within the last year.


Thoughts?






Thanks!

Crappy taiwan switch is all that is available for the 78-79.

Get a motorcraft switch for a 1986 with C6 and splice in your old connector.

I'll take a look at the wires this weekend for any breakdowns. I'll also be looking for a MC switch incase it goes again.


Thanks fellas!

Here is a pic of the one I just removed. As you said, the plastic is seperated from the housing.

Same thing happened to mine, bought a Standard Blue Streak and haven't had any problems with it since.

Were you tired when you posted this? I have yet to see a NS switch on a manual trans.
