    Is there a way to bypass clutch switch

    I have trouble sometimes starting the car. Turns out my switch is going bad, checked with a meter and i would go no resistence at times. Is there anyway to bypass the switch for the mean time till i get the funds to get a new switch.

    i wouldn't recommend it, it is there for a reason. but if you were stuck and couldn't get home, you could just use a scotch lok or even a paper clip and short the wires together. but really, i can't imagine a switch is that expensive? they're all over online for about 15 bucks

    The ECU monitors the clutch switch activity.
    It needs to know when to go to idle.
    You'll throw a code if you bypass it.
