Hello I have a 1990 Bronco. The original transmission was an AOD. It has a C6 transmission I needed to use a switch to start it and the gear selector was slightly off I needed to put it in neutral to put in reverse drive for neutral etc. I just had the transmission rebuilt and when I installed it my friend disconnected the switch and I was able to start the truck with the key. I adjusted the gear selector and know it won't start with the key. I can start it with a screwdriver in the starter solenoid and nothing with the key. Any thoughts or suggestions? Could I bypass the neutral switch

I don,t know if the 90 model has a wire connector behind the intake--is the same as a 78 model,but where ever your wire connection is. Check it for any brakes in it. Mine had one wire to brake on my 78 . Also check the adjustment. Loosen both screws or small bolts and move it as the key is pressed to start. MAKE SURE THE EMERGENCY BRAKE IS ON. You might have to have someone to help you or adjust it a little at a time--time the starter kicks in.
