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?

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.

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.

This is beneficial in many ways. Pedal pressure will be lighter, making shifting easier. Being able to crank the engine while the clutch is engaged and transmission is in gear is a good thing if you're trying to climb or back off a hill and stall out, and having to pull a fuse and stare at the 4WD light all the time just to get this "feature" to work is a PIA.

Worse, I have known people who have been stranded because of a malfunctioning clutch position pedal switch. Reliability is a big deal with me, and anything that removes electrical complexity on a Jeep is good. (Anyone who has Loctronics installed can likely tell you about being stranded when the unit failed. I always advise that this be ripped out by the wires as well.) You can also pull the fuse from the harness later if you want to temporarily disable the starter for security purposes.

If it is difficult to remove the device from underneath the driver's side dash, it may be easier for you to unbolt the clutch master cylinder, pop the clutch pedal pushrod off the pedal with a screwdriver, unplug the wiring harness, then pull the master cylinder out through the firewall to get to the CPPS for removal. Don't forget to place a fuse in the inside wiring harness when you're done.


Please attach a picture of the piece to be removed and the wires. Can't find which one it is.

I routed it into the glove box so when you turn the switch off and lock the box, no one would be able to start it. and flip the switch up when you want to start the jeep. no need to push the clutch in to start. I've had it on for 6-7 months now with no problems, cheaper than buying a whole new assembly. It only cost be about $10 for the switch and wire.

Instead of the toggle switch, could you just bridge the two wires at the cannon plug harness?
