It is***** but it isn't a button for that. Can't read it, but my husband says it's something like a starter button that you can push and not have to be in the truck
Expert:  Ted Ritter replied 1 year ago.
Hello, that button is the clutch over ride start switch, its purpose is to let you start the engine without pushing the clutch in, that's all. Don't really know how that can affect the engine from running right or stalling, maybe a little more information would be helpful.You said "it won't run right" can you be more specific and tell me exactly what it's doing, how is it running and does it start up and run at all?

It's starts, but it runs like it isn't getting enough fuel and will die
