Question about Cars & Trucks
My dad was having problems getting his truck to start, its usually the clutch pedal isnt down hard enough (through the floor). Then his starter went out, I replaced, worked fine for me, he went to try to adjust and/or bypass the switch for clutch pedal. Now truck doesnt start at all. I want to make sure he hasnt put wires back in wrong places or done more than check under hood fuses like he said and there is a mystery blue wire hanging down under dash by pedal assembly, curious where it use to go.

Switch module in steering column will need to be replaced or the brake switch itself at the pedal. There was actually a recall for the pedal switch that came out in early 02 Usually the switch in the column about $125.00 at the aftermarket parts stores

They may not need to be replaced but they need to be repaired. Somewhere under there in that wire harness you have a power wire that has a bare spot chafed in the insulation. You'll have to unwrap that bundle, the one you jiggle, and check each wire carefully for a bare spot. Start with any wire that is red,pink, orange; those are the normal power wire colors, but don't stop if you find one. There could be more than one. Just tape over the bare spots, you don't necessarily need to replace them. If the wire harness has beeen rubbing on a piece of the car try to reposition it so this doesn't happen again. Zip ties work good for this. Hope this helps.
