deactivation of the Neutral safety switch.

I was told that i need to deactivate my NSS or else my truck won't start after i get the 5-speed swap done. I am not sure where this is located or what it looks like. Any help would be great this is one of my last steps to get this thing rolling again.

Not sure where it is on an E4OD but just an idea, use it to make a dead man switch with it.

On mine, I used the clutch pedal safety switch. At least I don't need to step on the clutch to start it anymore either.

I've hidden a small toggle switch, when on, the truck will start, when off, it cuts power to the starter no matter what. I love it.


You should do the same with your NSS.

It's under the dash behind the clutch pedal, you should see a small connector going to a small plastic box if I remember correctly.

nss on a manual trans is on the clutch pedal. nss on an automatic trans should be on the shifter arm of the trans with the reverse light switch

On the E4OD the NSS is incorporated into the range sensor on the drivers side of the trans.
If you look at the wire harness at the range sensor I would be pretty sure you need to cut the W/PK and R/LB wires and join them, either direct or using a switch as suggested.

The two red wires would be for the C6 transmission. The reverse light switch is also in the TRS so you should be able to cut those wires also and connect them to the reverse light switch on the ZF5.
