neutal safety switch?

I've got a 91 5sp F350 sitting in my yard that won't turn over. Near as I can tell the neutral safty switch it bad. Or the solenoid is shot. The truck will pull start and run.

Where is the neutral safety switch on these trucks? What's the best way to bypass it?

Its an auto right? E4OD or C6? On a C6 its in the linkage at the transmission. On an E4OD I'm not sure, but it's probably the same. Did you try jumping the solinoid on the fender?

I'm not sure where the NSS is but I know you can disconnect the igintion wire from the relay on the fender and hook the relay up to a push button or momentary switch in the cab. Bypasses your NSS all together.

Well, seeing as u put it is a 5sp I would guess that means it is a manual tranny. That would not have a nss but rather a switch at the clutch pedal to prevent the truck from starting without the clutch being pushed in. Stick your head in there and look for the switch. Then just check how it works and make sure it is broken. Most of the time unplugging it does the trick or u may have to jump it.
