Bypass neutral safety switch

Is it possible to bypass this switch for troubleshooting purposes?
I purchased a car that is not running, and I want to take this switch out of the starting loop.
Thanks
Terry

yes you can. the safety feature of "not starting in gear" will be circumvented, but i would not be concerned with that. I had two seperate manual BMW's, and neither had to have the clutch engaged to start.

I had this done for me on a car when a 5spd swap was done, but how can I bypass it myself.
What is the procedure?

Ok,first just wondering what led you to jump out the clutch safety switch? Are you getting 12 v to the small stud on the starter solenoid?
Anyway,all you have to do is make a small jumper and plug it in the switch which is located at the clutch pedal. I think you plug it in to the wires though instead,its been so long since I have had to do that.
I am not responsible for anything that happens as a result of this though.
Good luck with that. I have had mine on my car jumped out forever with no problems,just don't start it in gear.

I bought a car that is not running. It looks like the owner was trying to find out why he had no spark, the dizzy is out and the clutch pedal is clicking when you push it. I just wanted to bypass the switch to eliminate it for troubleshooting purposes.
I will try jumping it at the pedal switch.
Thanks

Take the bypass Wire from an AOD Harness and just plug it in. DONE! or make your own. Little piece of wire with a (female) spade connector on both ends.
I did this on my 92 Daily Driver with a T-5 and I just leave it in Neutral so I don't accidentally start it in gear.
Simple 1 minute install. Hurts nothing!
If you need any further info., PM me

When my clutch safety switch died on my clutch pedal, I simply removed the plug from the switch and put some 5a blade fuses in the plug. They fit perfectly and was kinda convienent.

I was careful to start car with clutch in and in nuetral anyway, but something about having something on the car "broken" and not working like it should made me fix it and start it the way it should

Which plug did you put the 5A fuse in? My switch had two plugs attached to it. One was black and the other grey.

I've just had this problem with my car. It turned over a few times then nothing. This used to happen all the time but I would just depress the clutch pedal a little more then it would work. This made me want to bypass it. I just put a new solenoid on the starter so i hope it's not this.

I think i'm just going to try and use a single fuse to connect the two plugs together (grey to white) to complete the circuit. When I checked it on my car at the lot I left it at, it seems that this was really easy to do. But it's way to late and cold to try this out now.

Can someone correct me if i'm wrong here?

I'm not sure what you mean by the one on the pigtail not on the connector.

Just use 2 fuses. Stick one in each plug.

I think only the black one needs to actually be jumped.


Basically removed the two plugs from the clutch pedal switch, and stick the fuses in the wiring side. They do not connect together. The black one is the neutral safety. I forget what the white one is, but not needed to start the car. However it is important...somehow.
