98 Jeep Cherokee neutral safety switch

Anyone every replace one? I am looking at advance auto and AutoZone. They have 2 switches but look different. One is $20.99 for transmission model 30RH the other is $260.99 for transmission model AW4. Big price difference. How do I know which one I need?

Re: 98 Jeep Cherokee neutral safety switch

That did help, thanks.

Thanks all. Found it that the XJ's have the AW4 trans. But the good news is that most of the time, it just needs cleaning and new grease applied. I found this and will tackle it sometime soon. http://jeep-xj.info/HowtoNSSrebuild.htm

My problem has been it not starting intermittently. All lights and gauges work but no clicking or anything that resembles starting. Also I have no reverse lights. Those 2 problems equal the neutral safety switch. I will also have to properly adjust it so I get reverse lights. Should be interesting to try and do.

Thanks. From what I'm reading the can be a little trouble to get off and the adjustment can be a little tricky.
