okay, well how do i disable the clutch safety switch? and if it is the security system how do i disable that
Expert:  cartech replied 7 years ago.
the clutch switch is a safety issue if you bypass it you must be sure the clutch is in before starting so the car dont take off to bypass it the switch is on the pedal assymply under the dash it is 2 wires yellow and purple just jump the 2 wires and the switch will be bypassed

how do i jump the wires
Expert:  cartech replied 7 years ago.
you can cut them off the plug and use a butt conector stripe the wire and hook them together or you can just unplug it and use a paper clip and slide each end into the plug and tape it with electrical tape to keep it from falling out or touching any thing

tried disconnecting the socket from the back of the clutch and putting a wire between the purple and yellow wires but when i try to start the car "security" comes on the dash display? wher is the security system and can we try to disable that ? if that works good if not will try something else.
Expert:  cartech replied 7 years ago.
before you try to disable the security it isnt easy at all do you have a test light

ok when you try to start the car check the yellow wire for power if you have power with the clutch switch hooked up and the clutch in check the purple for power while trying to start if you have power check the purple wire at the starter if you have power with the clutch in while trying to start then the starter is bad
