FYI, the car will run if the switch is bad/disconnected. 

So I've learned. Discovered my Eagle will start in any gear, dunno if it's always been like that but it works and I have reverse lights!

VICTORY!



Here's the original NSS installed, note how tight the connector sits


Here's the new one. The connector doesn't sit as tight, the new NSS is also longer


Here's why it doesn't sit flush

I had the same problem when I replaced my NSS, it doesn't fit nearly as tight.  Did you go ahead and modify the connector?

No, I should have but I didn't. My Dremmel has finally given up the ghost so when it gets replaced I will go ahead and do it.

On a side note one cool thing about the NSS and connector is that it can be plugged in at 12:00 or 6:00 and it still works.
