Mine broke on my 02 TJ. I would jiggle the clutch to get it to start. Then I got pissed and cut the wires going to the clutch switch. I don't remember if I hooked them together to make it work, or left them apart. Its a 2 min job that costs $0.

Complete removal takes 5 minutes and no tools. Look under the dash with a flashlight for a round device located on the clutch pushrod. Disconnect the wiring harness, then remove the device by sliding the lock on the top, toward the firewall, as I remember. After removal, insert a 20 amp flat fuse into the wiring harness connection to close the connection, allowing you to start your Jeep without having to depress the clutch pedal.

Hello everyone. New here have done everything you said to do. No luck, guess i am slow am unclear where to put fuse straight on connector? thx jeep wont crank or anything. 06 wrangler x.

You can just put the fuse in the bypass slot for your X. From the owner's manual:

Clutch Interlocking Ignition System (Non —
Rubicon Models Only)
Manual transmission vehicles are equipped with a clutch
interlock safety feature. With this feature engaged, you
must depress the clutch pedal to allow cranking of the
engine. To temporarily bypass this safety feature while
off-road driving (4L range only), which will allow cranking
the engine without depressing the clutch, follow
these steps:
1. Locate the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the
engine compartment. Refer to “Fuse Panel” in Section 7
of this manual. (See page 305 for more information.)
2. Put a 10 Amp fuse in the PDC cavity (#28) marked as
Clutch Override.
NOTE: A fuse is provided in fuseblock cavity (f19 or
f20) marked as Spare.

You can download a copy of the owner's manual from Jeep.com

That pretty much leaves the starter, the ignition switch or wiring.

You try shorting the starter solenoid terminals with a screwdriver?

I think I am done w/jeeps. Anyone in dayton ohio, I need help!!! my only other option is to pay out the a@# to have someone look at it

In response to Mike3303's post and video, Extra security and eliminates the interlock safety switch = Great idea!! I'll pursue this line thinking and post my results when done. Love this forum. Dan, Arizona, 05 Rubicon, 6 speed.
