Anyone else experiencing their neutral light flashing during acceleration. It looks like it gets brighter during acceleration, and flashes lighter during deceleration. Just wondering.

Nope I haven't seen that. I do have a buddy with an '07 SE that he had to have his switch replaced for some reason but I'm not sure what it was doing.

Yeah, it's weird. While in gear, it will brighten as I accelerate, then a dim glow when I decelerate. It's like at a party when the lights are tied to flash with the music...When in Neutral it works as usual. I have checked connections at the back of the case, and they look secure.

Yeah...it is not a bright green like when it is in gear, but real faint until you rev, then it glows brighter. When I do go to neutral it lights up like normal.

Sounds like a short or bad ground for the neutral light switch in the trans...

Let us know what it turns out to be. Odd one......

I have had this happen on my 06 R. It will most likely get worse, mine turned out to be a lose ground wire that finally broke and left me stranded. Every light in the dash was blinking with the RPM's. Good luck with that.

You may have water in the little rubber boots that cover the connections on the switch. Or the spring inside the switch may be broken...

I'd check the connections first, then replace the switch. (Good luck if you have an aftermarket tank.)
