ok well the problem is back!! lol

i guess thats what i get for not fixing it the right way the first time, now im 99% positive its the switch, i took it out. no corrosion and the ball goes in an out just fine. soo i take out a test light and check to confirm its the switch. i check the two prong plug coming from the key switch and there is power on both connectors. there is power after the plug as well. so its not the connector. when i took the neutral safety switch out when everything was plugged in and i compressed the ball at the end of the switch the Reverse light came on, and when i released it nothing came on.

so im assuming that when the ball is decompressed it is in neutral and the light should come on. am i correct in this assumption? if this is the case the switch is done

Take it out of reverse and put it in neutral, then retest it just like you did and see if the neutral light comes on.

nope light still is off. the only thing that made the Neutral light come on, very dull, was when i put the grounded test light probe into the right side (neutral side) of the double plug coming from the key. only then did it come on, but i think it was just shorting it out, but would not start cause the 2 prong plug was not plugged in i think

I'm not telling you to run and order a new switch but I am leaning toward that is what your problem is. Not my money so final decision is up to you.

Ahh OK I just didn't want you thinking I was trying to make you buy something you didn't need and then be mad at me for it.

ok so heres a little update, i ordered what i thought was the neutral saftey switch and i believe the place i ordered it from either ordered the wrong part or something got mixed up.

so right now im back at square 1.

so i need your help
the piece that i am almost positive is the problem is underneath the air box, screwed into the crankcase with 3 - 4 wires coming out. it is item # 25 here. labled stopper cam. when i recived the part, the lower half was correct but all it was, was a plug it did not have any wires coming out of it. so im kinda getting confused. Item # 50 looks like the exact same thing but its called SWITCH ASSY, REVERSE and its 40 dollars more.

i think that item number 50 is the correct piece thats why the atv is unable to recognize reverse.
what do you guys think. im really getting lost now

Wink Exact same trouble Quadrunner 250 Fixed

2000 Suzuki Quadrunner 250 4X4 model LT-F250F Neutral light not coming on or flickering after shifting to reverse then back. I, after much time on the internet and no solid ideas, decided to put my mechanical skills to work. I found that when I shifted into neutral with the (foot) gear shifter I did not have any problem at all. It was only after shifting into reverse and than back to neutral. Sometimes the light wouldn't come on. If I jiggled the reverse lever real fast I could get the neutral light to come on sometimes. I was able to shake down (wiggle wires) under the seat on the right side and get the light to flicker/come on. For the following, (Refer to previous posters diagram for item numbers) So I traced the 3 wires back under the air box. I removed airbox, and found the wires going to switch #53c - reverse switch. Upon a closer look, the switch assy was badly dry rotted and cracked. With the key in the on position, I could push on this switch housing and get the neutral light to come on (solid). This was my trouble - reverse switch 53C badly cracked and damaged from heat and age, exposed to water and loose due to being broken. There are 2 switches that work together to give you the neutral light. It requires the gear shifter lever to be shifted to N which causes the switch #50 (the gear shift neutral switch) which is directly below the reverse switch to get a ground. Plus the reverse handle must be in the forward (normal) position to close switch #53c (reverse switch) and give the full path to ground for the neutral light. Break either one of these, and wala,,,, you will lose the neutral light. In the case of moving the reverse lever to reverse, it opens the neutral light path to ground and provides a ground for the reverse light. This is why you lose the neutral light and get a rev light when you shift into reverse. So, either switch can cause this problem. you can troubleshoot by disconnecting wire coming from Switch #50 at the quick disconnect under seat on right rail (quick plug in type- single wire)and ground it with a jumper somewhere to engine or frame. With the key on of course, if the light comes on, you have a bad neutral safety switch #50. If not your problem is most likely the reverse switch #53C which goes to the 3 wire plug on the right side. Bear in mind if neither of these don't fix the problem there is still the light itself, neutral relay, and the wiring that is in the circuit. Hope this helps anyone else that runs into this problem. Cause I sure know I couldn't find the help I needed.
