|496CHEVY3100||Are you using the one that screws into shifter or the one that attaches to a shifter rod ,the one on the rod seems to work best ,can be used for NSS or back up lights.|

lokar neutral safety swith.
I to am having trouble adjusting the safety switch on the Lokar shifter. Not happy with it at all. I have tried their way and all kind of ways does not work. However, I can make it work it will take me modifying the shifter so that it will work, it will start in Park and Park only. Lokar makes a good quality product but the neutral safety switch adjustment for a 700R4 does not work. I came here to see if there was an answer. I see I am not the only one who has a problem.

There is no problem with a Lokar shifter and the NSS there are literally thousands in use around the country. I totally agree with IrelandsChild, get real you just screw it in and its done, check its operation and its good to go.

Write to Lokar. That's what I've done, although I've had no reply as yet. I don't expect anything from them, only that they address this evidently very common failing of their design. It's inexcusable.

Sorry about your accident. Cars can be fixed though. I also have a trans mounted lokar and no matter how I adjust it it will start in P, N and OD. Obviously it's not good to have it start in OD, but I am aware of it and I'm the only one who drives it. Only time the key gets turned is with me sitting in it with a hand on the wheel and a foot on the brake. It is on my list of things to address eventually, but it is a ways down the line.
I read a post somewhere about somebody installing a very thin shim between the switch washer and the mounting boss. I tried it but then it would not start at all. Maybe it wasn't thin enough.

Oh, So that's what happened to the first one.
Mr. Crosley, Just trying to make my friend Brian feel better about the whole situation by injecting a little humor. My original post was not technical either, so you can delete it too.

I'm already able to laugh about it, although there WILL be a picture of it on my "wall of pain", and there will never, EVER, be another Lokar product in any of my cars. I fully accept responsibility for turning the key while not being behind the wheel, but I accept no responsibility for the nss not working. These need to be bullet proof, idiot proof to install, and should require ZERO maintenance.

Brian, Shh.............it happens, if you laugh about it, the pain will ease. Made me think about the time I nearly knocked the door of my old camino. Add it to the Faux Pas thread. Nolan
