Re: jeep 2006 wrangler x series
Yes that fuse is intended to bypass the clutch safety switch indefinitely.If theres a good fuse in there it will bypass and not cause any problem whatsoever..........(you probably already know this ****........)just make sure the transmission is in neutral or you have the clutch pressed down so the jeep doesnt lurch when you turn the key

Clutch switch keeps it from cranking.
You can bypass the cluctch switch. Make double sure transmission is in neutral. On many jeeps, under the hood is fuse/relay box. One of the relays is the starter motor. Pull the relay. With a pair of pliers, take a paper clip and short the pins that go to starter. They wire can get hot. If the starter cranks, you might be right (see ignition switch and any interlocks - like clutch switch), if the starter doesn't crank, get a new starter.
If its a stick you may have a problem with the clutch safety switch. They don't want you starting the jeep without the clutch in. If the safety switch has failed it may think the clutch is still released. Also make sure the battery terminals are clean. If your lights don't shine bright you need to start looking for a connection issue to the battery if you know the battery is good.
Check the clutch master cylinder, the line to the slave cylinder on the bellhousing and the slave for leaks. If fluid is low there is a leak. Master can "bypass" as well similar to a brake master in which case it wont leak but the slave won't move when the clutch is applied. If that system is working then the clutch likely has worn out.
Your clutch is not disengaging. If it a hydrolic clutch chk. the fluid in resavor, Or slave cyl. for the clutch is bad, Or it has got air in it and needs to be bleed. This is a clutch problem, nothing wrong with trans. If its a manual clutch linkage its an ajustment thing. My best guess if its hydrolic slave cyl. went bad, or resavor is out of fluid.
