    Your vehicle is not equipped with a Neutral safety switch. You have a Transmission range Sensor (TRS) located inside of the transmission. The Transmission Range Sensor (TRS) communicates shift lever position to the Transmission Control Module (TCM) as a combination of open and closed switches. This also sends a signal to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to engage the starter. Each shift lever position has an assigned combination of switch states (open/closed) that the TCM receives from four sense circuits. The TCM interprets this information and determines the appropriate transaxle gear position and shift schedule. Have your technician check the wiring connectors at the transmission and TCM before condeming the TRS
