i know you can wire the park neutral sensor to a switch. i couldnt tell you on a rancher 350 what wires it is. but it is a ground system so if you take a test light to some suspect wires it will be the one that lights up the test light when you press the start button without it being in neutral. take this wire run it to a toggle with a ground and thats it.

to the forum.... Perhaps the gear shif return spring or the return spring pin are broke. I have heard of that happening before. Part #s 11 & 12 on the schematic.

Gear position switch might be bad.

I have replaced a lot of gear position switches. They get moisture/condensation in them and go bad, common here in the winter when they get rode just enough to get the frost out of the motor and shut back down. Is this an ES model or the foot shift?
