Clutch Safety Switch
While on this subject has anyone installed a hidden switch in line with the bypass to disable starting? Thinking of doing this to my TJ, as a rip-off slow down.

|Jerry Bransford||It's above the driver's side footwell, above where you put your feet.|

|slyr114||thanks for that i seem to understand it on the picture, however i cant seem to actually find this? do you have an actual picture so i can see where it is lol.|

|Jerry Bransford||Here ya go. Note you only have to move a plug at the end of a small electrical cable from from the Clutch Interlock Safety Switch Fastener to the By-Pass Connector.|

Thanks Jerry for the info and pic. Will be changing ours over to starting in gear. Don't want to be crawling under dash every time we go off-road. Brian.

|Jerry Bransford||Found my copy of the photo showing how to do it...|

I've had my '97 TJ's clutch safety interlock bypassed since the first weekend I had it home after buying it new. If you know to step on the clutch or shift into neutral before starting the engine, there's no need for the bypass. People didn't need them before the lawyers got involved.
While newer TJs bypass it by inserting a fuse, the '97's is bypassed by moving a cable connector just above the driver's side footwell. How to do so is fully described in your owner's manual and is nothing more than moving a small connector to a different location.

Clutch Interlock Switch By-Pass
Okay, got another noob question. Was reading the manual today and came across article about the clutch switch by-pass switch. Got 97 4.0 5sp TJ new to us. Looks like this is for using starter while in gear for tricky off-road situations. Why can't this be used all the time on-road or off? All the old stick shift rigs you could use starter for starting while in gear if needed. Any feed-back appreciated. Bet it's a safety thing. Thanks.
