I brought it from advanced auto parts. But when i align the two lines on it up. it only starts between neutral and reverse. The physical cable of the shifter is correct. Does this mean i have to get the neutral switch from ford only ?
well not really. loosen the switch and play with it a while adjust it to the right spot and tighten. It doesn't matter if the lines match or not, that would be if it were brand new but a 97 the shifter cable has stretched.
