For days the new starter would not turn over. Thought I heard a buzz in the ignition switch. Just went to confirm that, turned the switch and it started. Does that mean the ignition switch is intermittent and needs to be changed or something else could be wrong?

Is a neutral safety switch for an automatic? We have a manual trans 4x4.
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

manual you will have a clutch switch like the one i sent you in diagram

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

there is also a shift switch in the circuit

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
My impression is that it's for an automatic since in the diagram it shows positions for P N D 2 1
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

I think that's it, Thanks for the help.
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.

what is the low side reading when van is off & after 10 min of a/c been off also.?

50 on the low side is border line , the 175 high is okay as long as it does not pass that .?

if you low on Freon it will go up to 50 or the compressor is weak .

ideally want see 25 to 45 , but the hotter it is the higher the low will be , so does the pressure go down when you rev it up ?

Please let me know

Thank You
