Subject: Disable Clutch Pedal Start
IP: Logged

Message:
How can I disable the feature, where I have to push the clutch pedal in just to start the truck? I just read where on the newer Jeep Wranglers, that if you put a fuse in an empty spot that they identify in the owners manual, that you can start in gear, I would like to be able to push start the vehicle in gear if needed. I am hoping that something similar is available on the Dakotas? '99 Dodge Dakota 5.2L 5 speed 4x4 Club Cab. Thanks for any help. "nfork@erols.com"

All the clutch safety switch does is not allow the starter to engage when in gear, you shouldn't have to bypass it to kick start it , turn the ignition on , push the clutch in and push your truck down a hill and dump the clutch in 3rd, it should start , the starter isn't used in kick start mode.

I think Phoenix is right about the push start.
I have disabled my clutch switch but not by placing a fuse.
I unplugged the plug found attached to the clutch pedal at the fire wall. then jumpered the 2 connectors. My truck will now start in gear or without pushing the clutch at all.
Be carefull with the clutch switch removed.

you can also plumb in a single throw toggle switch and hide under the dash for a handy kill switch feature. this will work as long as the predator does not know all they have to do is cut the wires and twist them together.

good luck.
