Starter/Relay question.

Guys,
Got a question for the electric experts. i want to instal some sort of Neutral safety switch in my 6 speed car and like to put a relay so current does not go thru the switch. I was thinking to use the purple wire on the switch and the on the control side of the relay. But I dont want to bring a wire from the battery or junction to inside and to the starter selenoid.
Where is a good source to get power for the relay inside the car? Or which circuit on the fuse box?
Thanks

Not sure what you are trying to do, Ill take a guess...You really can't use the fuse box for a power source. If you want a NSS switch thats not directly tied into the starter circuit, and still gets power for cranking from IGN switch, try this using a Bosch style relay

30# Purple from IGN switch
87# Purple to starter "S" terminal
86# jumpered to 30#
87# out to NSS

At NSS switch.......
One terminal to 87# at relay
Other terminal to ground

Car will only start when NSS switch is closed.

Re: Starter/Relay question.

Gregs layout will work fine with the tko / t56 neutral safety switch. Best bet would be to put the relay under the dash or in the console, someplace the purple wires all ready are, then you only need one new wire, an "active when grounded" to the NSS

Greg U and JimM,
Thanks . I was thinking about it today and tought the same think almost, use the purple wire for controlling the relay and powering it.

Re: Starter/Relay question.

Can someone verify the terminal numbers on Greg's list above?

Should the #87 referred to as going "out to NSS" be the #85 instead?

I'm trying to wire my TKO NSS to this relay and want to be sure.

Thanks,
Rob

Yes, it would be 85, which is one end of the coil. If you don't have the NSS closed, the relay won't energize and run the starter solenoid.
