Does anyone have any suggestions on where to find a replacement transmission position sensor? I've been looking for months with no luck....

Hello Becky G,

I too have a '68 LTD with a bad column neutral safety switch. I haven't been able to find them reproduced in aftermarket, but I do occasionally see them on E-Bay, several months when I looked they were over 100 dollars for a NOS one in the box.

Something to consider if you have a C4 or C6 transmission and you either can't find an original replacement or don't want to spend $$$ on an old one when you do find it, you can buy the C4/C6 transmission mounted neutral safety switch and retrofit it onto the C4/C6. They are about 40-50 bucks brand new and you'll have to extend the wiring back into the cabin which isn't terribly difficult.

This will cure the "have to wiggle the column shifter" to get it to start or have the reversing lamps come on from worn linkages. Mounting the neutral safety switch to the C4/C6 transmission (if your car has one) cures that.

Just thoughts,

Good luck
