Where is the wiring for the neutral safety switch located? I need to tie into it for a remote start system?

I didn't hook up anything to the neutral safety switch, and I know that all the testing I did to verify its proper function it wouldn't start unless in park or neutral.

Okay, I thought that the neutral safety switch may have been a required input for the system to work.

Nope, its already tied into the ignition switch. With a remote start you are just using the ignition switch circuit to start the car. If the car is NOT in park or neutral, the car will not start.

I just looked over the install manual that came with the system and it says: "This wire will test with ground with the gear selector either in PARK or NEUTRAL. This will prevent the vehicle from accidentally being started while in a drive gear. This input MUST rest at ground in order for the remote start system to operate."

It sounds like it is required to be tied in, Or could i save the trouble and just hook that wire to ground?
