vinson 500 neutral switch

The neutral safety switch does two things. First it will not work if itís gone bad or has some kind of fault. And I believe it also acts as a fail safe so you canít start your quad in gear unless (Equipped) using the handbrake. When itís gone bad it also cuts all power to the electric starter. Though most times itíll still work using the recoil starter if your Atv is (Equipped) with one. As long as itís definitely in neutral. And itíll prevent the neutral light from illuminating.

ok, but is there a way to know what the role of the green wires? i see some post ppl bypass these switch so they start in all gear but im wandering what else it will do if its missing one wire, the vinson have 5 gold dot and the arctic cat only 4 on the switch, i wander if one will be for the park, i really dont want to split the case again to go change thats switch, just finish redoing all the transmission, wish i will have spot it before closing the engine. :S
