The clutch switch is located in cab between the brake pedal and throttle. It is mounted on the clutch rod at the firewall. You should replace it, not bypass it.

I agree, replace it, don't bypass it. It's there for a reason. Normally I have nothing good to say about Chilton or Haynes manuals, but the Haynes manual gives a really good description of how to adjust the switch.

cross the red and the yellow wire leading to the neutral safety switch to bypass it

Yes, you can. However I would not recommend it.


The clutch safety switch is located at the clutch pedal arm same as the brake light switch but slightly bigger.....To bypass the switch, just disconnect one wire or put a jumper wire accross the 2 wires to the switch depending on how the circuit was designed.......Since it is called a safety switch I won't recommend altering it....


It doesn't have one, it has a switch on the clutch pedal. It also has an interlock switch on the dash, turn the ignition switch on and press the interlock switch and it will bypass the clutch switch.


The clutch safety switch is on the clutch pedal shaft. It is a small black box with a plunger coming out of it. When you push the clutch down, the clutch safety switch connects the starter and it should turn over. If it doesn't you may have to replace it or adjust it. It's adjustable. Just adjust it until the red plunger is fully retracted out of the switch when the clutch pedal is pushed in all the way.


If it is an automatic it will not have a clutch safety switch it will have a neutral safety switch



the clutch safety switch is located under the dashboard, on most cars, it is connected directly to the clutch pedel.


To bypass the cars neutral safety switch, you need to find the two wires to the safety switch and connect them together. It can also be done by putting the car in neutral.



If it is a manual transmission it would not have a neutral safety switch - it may have a clutch safety switch usually located at the upper end of the clutch pedal under the dash area If it is a manual transmission it would not have a neutral safety switch - it may have a clutch safety switch usually located at the upper end of the clutch pedal under the dash area


Bypass the clutch safety switch located under the dashboard. Note that his must entail more than simply unbolting the switch so that the cluch pedal does not actuate it. The safety switch signal is also used by the ECU to signal a clutch-disengaged condition. You will need to keep the switch with its original mechanical actuation by the pedal, but electrically separate the start safety function from the ECU function. Drew



How do u bypass the neutral safety switch in a 2002 chevy silverado 1500


A neutral safety switch is located on a steering column or center console depending on where your gear selector is placed, and is for automatic transmissions. the clutch safety switch is located near the floor board on the firewall where the clutch petal meets it when depressed. in both cases these switch brackets can get bent or loosened pull forward on a bent bracket, or tighten the strap and adjust in both cases to ensure the lever is engaging this button.


Clutch safety switch =- should be on the top of the clutch pedal under dash area Neutral safety switch could be at the lower end of the gearshift handle or at the side of the transmission


Clutch safety switches are usually mounted under the dashboard above the clutch pedal, so that they are activated when the clutch is depressed.


The clutch safety switch is located on the linkage attached to the pedal,approx. 6" up from the pad, however if your f-150 has cruise control,the cutout switch and the clutch safety switch are often a common switch(meaning that both switches are built into one unit) also you did not specify what year your truck is.with-out the year and the options I cannot tell you which wires you need to connect to by-pass the switch. Of course the switch was put there for safety reasons and should not be eliminated


Not a good idea. It is called a safety switch for a reason.


Clutch Safety Switch? Usually located at the upper end of the clutch pedal under dash area


There isn't a neutral safety switch but a clutch switch that is located under the dash on the clutch pedal.


The neutral safety switch or (clutch safety switch) is above the clutch pedal near the fire wall. It is a small black (on my Subaru Impreza) button that is about half way between the pedal and where the clutch arm is attached.


It is built into the PRNDL switch on most cars and impossible to bypass.


safety switch is located under dash on clutch pedal


The clutch safety switch keeps the car from starting unless the clutch is pushed in. On the top of the clutch pedal there is a little black box with a plunger on it. When the clutch is pushed in the electrical connection to the starter solenoid is completed. The switch just unscrews from the bracket.


The neutral safety switch is located on the transmission, passengers side.
