  • Neutral Safety and Backup Light Switch

    Hey guys...I have a 700r4 transmission that needs a neutral safety switch and backup light capabilities (since it is mandatory in Virginia) but the shifter is a wrench and rebar and not your normal shifter from Lokar or B&M, etc.
    What can I use/do?
    Thanks,
    Gary

    A push button that is adjusted so the shifter has to be in park for the solenoid to engage could work. The switch on my Quicksilver was temperamental, so I put in a spring position toggle switch that has to be pushed to start my 442.

      Thanks for the reply 23dodges10, but I am hoping someone knows what I can attach to my 700r4 transmission that will give me both functions instead of changing out my wrench shifter...

        Summit racing has a safety switch that bolts to the pan gasket on an trans, fully adjustable. That's what I used on my 700r4.

          Thanks dannornn, but unfortunately I need both neutral safety and backup light switch to be legal in Virginia...

            Wouldn't need to change shifter. Weld on a tab or make the shifter push the button it, closing the contacts completing the circuit. Similar to a limit switch on mill equipment. Normally open or closed contacts. Lever, loop, roller, button are several types. It would take 2 one for each function.

              So after re-reading the Virginia DMV/State Police regulations, it turns out that I only need a neutral safety switch and not both; this is a good thing as now I just have to figure out how to make the Lokar BU-1400 work on my application.
              Thanks to all for the help, happy roddin!!!
