Default neutral safety switch wiring

any wiring experts? as far as the safety switch goes, does anyone know which wires i need to have connected to get the car to start? i mean, there's 9 to choose from. no clue why they made this so overly complex.




i'm going to make my car start from my iphone using an arduino with a wifi shield. if worst comes to worst, i can wire in another neutral safety switch and have it controlled by a servo, but if i only need to connect 2 of the 9 wires to make it start, i'd prefer to go that route. no sense messing with more wires than i need to.

2002 5 speed, black key/no skim.

before anyone says it's dangerous with a manual trans: i park in a driveway with the e-brake set. in the time i've owned the car, i've never once left it in gear. even if i did leave it in gear, the car does not have the power to run at idle with the parking brake on. it will just stall. even if it did have the power to move, it would only go forward about 2 feet, at which point it would bump into my maple tree and stop. the tree will always be in front of the car when i use this, because the arduino will only be able to start my car at my house, as it uses my home wifi for a network connection. if that weren't enough, i also plan to program it to turn off at the press of a button.

nevermind. figured it out. my car doesn't even have that stupid switch. i don't even know what that switch is.

2 yellow wires run to a momentary switch. couldn't be any simpler.

i guess from now on i'll look at the car before looking at rock auto for parts. service manual wiring diagram also makes no sense. not to me at least. no wonder i was confused.

But what would you do if you left your window down and the wind blew your gas door open? What if a squirrel just happen to poor a high octane fuel inside your tank, climbed inside your car, died and landing on your gas pedal put it into wide open throttle, at the same time a gardener mistakenly cuts down the very tree meant to stop the car! And it takes off down the street killing everything in its path!!! cmon rob, think of the children
