I just picked up a '85 supra and have been bangin away on it for a couple weeks just getting it fixed up a bit. Problem is now, all of a sudden, I am locked out of the starter. No clicks or anything.

I tried to just unplug the alarm behind the drivers rear seat panel and it didn't help.

I'm looking into the neutral safety switch and want to know a quick way to bypass the switch just to test. I've been reading this forum over and over and haven't found a definitive answer yet. I've looked over this forum and many others, but need specifics on the bypass.

I see two wire plugs coming from the Neutral safety switch up to the engine compartment. One with three wires and one with six wires. Looks like the three wires are from the ignition down to the switch and the six are pins for each possible setting on the tranny.

I'm stuck thinking it has to do with the alarm, but I can't rule out the neutral safety switch till I try to bypass it.

Also, when I got the car the alarm would go off any and every time you opened a door and wouldn't stop when the ignition was turned on. So I know it was acting funny already.

Thoughts...miracles....guidance?

Thanks

Alarm?

I think you have to use the key in the drivers door lock to reset the alarm.
But I could be wrong.
I haven't been driving my '85 long enough to have had that problem, yet.
Check the owners manual.
Yeah right... :laugh:

You might also try disconnecting the battery, and leaving it overnight, to reset everything...

I replaced the positive wire to starter, and checked the ignition wire on starter as well. Cleaned all grounds that I could find.

Just jumped the neutral safety switch and the starter fired off. Now, if I go with the jumper, I'm thinking I'll have to rig up the reverse lights and cruise control. At least there's some progress.

Interesting note is that the alarm is totally non existent at the moment though. Very strange and disturbing. I feel like it will come back with a vengeance.

Try to check out all the parts involved. In checking each and every single part of it, like the Alarm System or the Neutral Safety Switch, you could diagnose the problems of your vehicle. Be patient cause it would take your time to really find out the cause of it.
