Default Neutral safety switch

My harness is no good and can't seem to find a replacement. Will the switch and harness from earlier models work? That harness is easy to get and they are inexpensive.from

Mine, 1998 Durango 5.2L 44RE

The one I want to use from earlier models

My search revealed that I'm not the only one who's had problems finding the type of harness my Durango uses.

1998-1999 are the same.


I looked up the switch pin outs and they are the same color wires to same source pins (well at least on the 1999-2001 Ram) to the durango. There is one difference tho;

On the left side of the harness is pin out #1. This wire is supplied with a 20-VT/BK colored wire. The wire goes into the switch as "Back-Up Lamp Feed". On the 1999-2001 Ram it states L10 18BR/LG goes to "Fused Ignition Switch Output (Run)"


Now I would say its worth a try from a junk yard but I would try to find the correct harness.

I need the harness for my 1998 Durango 5.2L with a 44re transmission. I can't find it locally or through online search. Maybe someone has a pick n pull nearby, that has one and can get it for me. Any help would be appreciated, here's a pic for comparison.

Thanks.

Thanks, I'll look into it. Need to get my truck on the road before the cold weather hits.
