Starting without depressing the clutch

A few months ago I put a 10 amp fuse in the clutch override slot in the fusebox. This allowed me to start the Jeep without depressing the clutch pedal. The other day I disconnected the negative battery terminal for an unrelated issue. When I hooked it back up I had to push in the clutch to start it again. I checked the fuse and it was fine, I even swapped it for a brand new fuse and it still didn't work. Any ideas on what happened? It's an 05' with the 4.0 I6 and a 6 speed trans if that matters. Thanks for your help.

Just a guess here, but maybe after dc'ing the battery, your computer relearned with the fuse in instead of out. Try pulling the fuse, then disconnecting the battery again, reconnect the battery (with the fuse out) then drive it a while before reinstalling the fuse. Someone can correct me if I'm all wet..!

Couldn't hurt. I'll try this in the morning.

Any more info on this? Where under the dash? I tried disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it with the fuse out, that didn't help.
