View Full Version : Transmission safety switch

My 03 Forester has an intermittent no crank problem caused by the transmission safety switch. Where is this switch located and what's involved in accessing and changing it? Banging the shifter forwards generally fixes it until next time, but my wife is scared of being stranded when that fix doesn't work anymore.

It's on the drivers side of the transfer case. It's about a $35 part, not sure how you replace that
