Its probably down on the pedal box. Get down and have a look up under the dash. Find out where it is and check the wiring diagram to see if it operates anything else.

SOURCE: can i simply bypass my clutch switch?

yes you can. this has to be done for a vehicle with a remote starter and a manual transmission. follow the clutch pedal up to the switch and unplug the harness. then install a jumper like a paper clip and tape it up good. now secure it out of the way. good luck.....scott

SOURCE: Where is clutch safety switch located on 1992

Hello mtripp: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. The neutral safety switch is located on a bracket directly above the clutch pedal. Should have two wires that plug into it. One should be white with a blue tracer and the other wire should be black with white tracer. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received as this way i know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

SOURCE: how do I bypass clutch

To by pass the switch just disconnect the switch and connect the 2 wires from the switch wiring harness together. If it is only one wire then you connect it to a ground source.

This bypass solution is not recommended in any case. The switch should be replaced for safety measures. It is very inexspensive to buy this switch and is well worth the $30.00. My opinion

Locate and bypass clutch safety switch

The clutch switch is located under the dash attached to the pedal. DO NOT BYPASS it is put there as a safety so the vehicle will not start in gear. It is a cheap part and should just be replaced.

How do i bypass a sterter/clutch switch in a 1996 ford mustang

I'll assume you mean the switch that won't allow you to start the car unless the clutch pedal is depressed? If so this is not recommended as it's a safety feature. If you disable this the car will move if started in gear and this could be very dangerous.

Otherwise you'll need to look under the dash for the switch. It's in-line with the clutch pedal and it's fairly far up. It typically looks like this:

To bypass this you will simply have to jumper the wires together to make the connection as if the clutch were depressed. You'll need to test these with a test light or multi-meter to figure out the proper wires.

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!

I have a 5 speed transmission and my clutch neutral safety switch is going out. can I bypass this switch

well to clear things up, its not a "neutral safety switch", manual vehicles have a clutch safety switch!
And yes you can bypass it, follow the clutch pedal up behind the dash, you'll find the switch. pull the plug and "short" the two connections(of the plug) with a piece of wire.

What makes you say it is "going" bad? Just curious, normally it'll just stop working!

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 01 chevy silverado 1500 won't start MOST of the time.

There is a clutch safety switch under the dash. When you press the clutch it presses the switch. You might try replacing that and see if that fixes your problem. This would cause it not to start and everything would still come on.
