I believe the switch is under the dash near the top of the pedal arm, just take it off and put a new one in it's place.

Clutch Pedal Position (CPP) Switch
The clutch pedal position switch (CPP) is controlled by the clutch pedal. Depressing the clutch pedal manually closes the CPP switch and allows engine cranking. The CPP switch will also deactivate the speed control system.

Did you reconnect the wires and re-position the clutch safety switch at the clutch pedal assembly? If this switch is not positioned or connected correctly it will not allow the truck to start.

Starter on truck is not starting truck

There are safety switches on the brake pedal lever(automatic) or clutch pedal lever(stick) depending on year. What usually happens is that your feet bump or break the switch and you lose the starter pulse. This switch is suppose to prevent "runaway" vehicles by insuring that your foot is on the brake pedal or clutch when you use the starter. Look under the drivers dash on the brake or clutch lever.

There can also be another switch on some models that is for safety and insures the gearshift is in Park. Finally, some ignition switches have adjustments where they attach to the steering column. The ignition switch has slots which allow the adjustment.

The loss of your signal to the starter relay can be verified by using a Voltmeter on the small wire of the starter relay, then backtrace the above switches to restore the signal.

Diagrams are on the Web by doing a search specific for the year, make, and model followed by which part you want to find. (example -fusepanel or powerbox)

There is a safety switch off of the clutch pedal so you don't start it with it in gear, and the clutch out. This is adjustable,and sounds like is your problem. Look under your dash for a small switch that is acuated by the pedal.

Neutral safety switch....I think

The switch is located at the top of the clutch pedal assembly, above your feet. Its a little cramped, but its a simple dc two wire switch, you should be able to check it with a meter for power and to see if the switch does indeed need replacement. If thats the problem, when you see the new switch, you'll know it goes in, very easy. good luck
