Jumper the connector to the clutch safety switch at the top of the clutch pedal lever.

    the connector has wire terminals in it, run a jumper wire made from a short piece of wire and two **** connectors between those 2 connectors, it is allot more work than just replacing the switch.

Switch is adjustable; all you have to do is pull the switch back so that the pedal doesn't hit it anymore. I did it on mine.

2002 chevy impala won't start if I jump starter


Is the security light on or flashing ?
The yellow wire goes from the key switch to the neutral safety switch, then to the starter. So bypassing the neutral safety would make the starter crank the engine, but would have nothing to do with the rest of the engine.

The clutch safety switch behind peddle seems to need replacement.


of course!...however you do not want to bypass this safety switch! bypassing it will allow a car in gear to start...possibly running over and/or killing someone! get a cheap switch at a salvage yard!

My 1990 Honda Accord won't start. I just replaced


i have two things that come to mind first of which is your neutral safety switch ...its located on the clutch pedal ..its to prevent the car from being started in gear it may not be working correctly and wont let power to the started when you turn the key...most likely the problem...the other thing if thats not it you may need to check the ignition switch...

I have a 1993 chevy 3/4 ton 5 spd. I have power everywhere when you first turn the key. Radio, headlights, dome light ect.. When I push in the clutch an attempt to turn the key over Nothing happens, no...


Either clutch nuetral safety switch or antitheft system turning off starter.

Ive heard of people bypassing the clutch neutral safety switch. I beleive it is as simple as finding the button under the clutch pedal and snipping the two wires and twisting together

(¦n?·tr?l ?s?f·t? ?swich)

(electricity) An electric switch that is connected to the ignition switch of an internal combustion engine and prevents starting the engine unless the transmission shift lever is in the neutral or park position, or the clutch pedal is depressed.



Might try tilting the steering wheel up or down and starting in different positions, maybe loose wire in tilt.

Trying to replace a clutch safety start switch on a 2002 chevy s-10 5 speed trans.hubby was gonna try and bypass it but cant so need to know the wiring,its got 2 solid purple wires and 1 brown and white...


do not bypass it. the only wires on it that are of concern are the 2 purple wires. If you wire them together it will start without the clutch pedal depressed but that can be very dangerous.

My 1987 toyota pick up 5 spd will not start when you push in the clutch but it will as soon as you push the clutch start cancel button i beleive the clutch pedal switch is to blame it is not completeing...


There will be a switch on the clutch pedal bar under the dash somewhere. When you push in the clutch the pedal touches the switch and completes the circuit. It may be out of adjustment, or just worn out. You can either replace it, or remove it, and pigtail the wires together. Although, if you do that, be aware that it will start in gear, clutch out, and could be a safety issue.

Nissan starter


Try replaceing the starter realy but if itsa 5 speed try bypassing the clutch safety switch with a paper clip and you might see that it will start, the clutch switch is on the clutch pedal, if it's automatic it's on the brake switch.

1996 Geo Metro Clutch won't disengage


Hi,

In all likelihood two (2) possibilities:
  • defective clutch cable (most likely); and/or
  • defective clutch fork (least likely).
Should it be the cable, this might be of help. It is turns out to be the fork, you might need the services of a qualified professional or a dealership.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
