How do I bypass the nuetral/park safety feature?

I'm almost finished putting my CJ7 back together after a frame swap. I am able to get the engine to start using the old 2 screwdrivers on the solenoid trick, but can't get it started using the key. I was hoping someone could tell me how to bypass the nuetral/park safety feature on the TF999. I'm guessing I just need to disconnect and ground some wires, but I'm really not sure what wires, or even if I'm on the right path here.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: How do I bypass the nuetral/park safety feature?

This is a safety device, it's not a good idea to bypass it.

Did you replace the solenoid during the frame swap?

If so, you likely replaced it with the wrong one. There are two.. one for a manual transmission and one for an automatic transmission.

Is the acturation for the gearshift out of adjustment? That would cause a similar problem.

There's a terminal on the bottom of the solenoid. Ground it and you've bypassed the park/neutral feature. Only do this while testing until you can find and fix the problem.

Nope, didn't change the soleniod.

Yup, probably not a good idea to mess with safety features. However, if I ma the only one driving this vehicle and am aware of it, might not be so bad.

It could definately be the linkage out of adjustment, however, if that was the case I would think that I should be able to get it to start with the key somewhere across the range of the shifter, ie. in at lest nuetral. I'm going to mess with the linkage adjustment some more tonight and see if I can't get it to line up right. Thanks for the input all.

Some where mine is grounding itself out. The only way I can start the Jeep is with the manual solenoid. The one for the Auto wont work.
