        Where is this switch located in a 1987 Dodge Aries LE 2.2L with automatic trans?

          Hi Rich, glad to assist you! The neutral safety switch is screwed into the transmission case, just above the pan area at the front of the transmission near the dipstick. To get more specific information on the location of this part I would recommend purchasing a Chilton or Haynes Repair Manual for your vehicle, not only will it show the location and also explain how to install, but you'll find it handy for many more projects on your vehicle.

          I'm happy to help, Challenger Guy! I checked on your 1971 Dodge Challenger 5.2L and found that the BWD Neutral Safety Switch is designed to fit the automatic transmission.

          It is located under dash driver side look behind the upper arm of clutch pedal and you should see a green and black wire coming from the button (switch) assembly on the firewall. The wires go up above the clutch pedal.
