I took the neutral safety switch out and cleaned it as best as i could. it still starts in any gear. does the "brain" think the car is in park or neutral? it will also start without the neutral safety switch or the (M/A) switch hooked up. i am assuming this hybrid set up is over ridden by the manual shift linkage (or it may go into reverse while driving). at initial take off the car progresses from a lower gear (assuming 1st) then shifts extremely hard into high gear. are there electronics on the transmission that i can look at as well?
