Auto transmission inhibitor switch/Neutral safety switch
  • Anyone else out there had grief with their inhibitor switch? And knows where I can find a replacement?

    Had problems starting for a while know. The last AA guy that I called out reckoned I need the transmission cable adjusting, and showed me how to shift it to neutral rather than park to get it turning over. But my mechanic says its the switch.

    All contributions welcome! 

    BTW It's a 2003 mk2

    Cheers 





  • I thought I had this problem myself, but it turned out my cable just needs adjusting and it wasn't fully in park. The switch itself is "binary" isn't it? - It either works or it doesn't, and if it doesn't, your car won't start. So if you can work around it by starting in neutral, surely the switch itself works...
