The purpose of the switch is (government mandated) safety so that you can't start it in gear.

Reasons for overriding.

1. Not having to climb into the thing anytime you need to start it.

2. In low gears, if you stalled it, you can drive forward off the starter and start the vehicle while in gear. Some steep angles can prove to be a challenge if you had to push in the clutch to restart.

Hank ^^^Thats exactly what I'm trying to do.^^^ This switch is not going to be an anti-theft device as much as it will be an anti-wife running over a honda. I just want to be able to go outside in the morning, flip the switch, put the key in, and start my Jeep without have to jump in.

Binary would you mind explaining a little more how to put my switch in. I'm not trying to be a pain, I just don't want to set my Jeep on fire.

I'm guessing he is tired of pressing the clutch to start his jeep so he wants to get rid of the pressing the clutch part but he wants to wire a switch so he can turn back to normal when his wife is driving so she doesnt run over some1 on accident.

binaryking You can do that. Just run a switch to the fuse in the fuse panel. So that when the switch is off, it opens the circuit to that fuse, and when the switch is on it closes the circuit. This should be a pretty easy thing to accomplish with a little bit of trial and error.

Hank I just put the fuse in and I no longer have to use the clutch to start it. Is there anyway I could install a switch to have some added saftey? How could I do this when I only had to put a fuse in? I'd really like to be able to turn the clutch override on and off with the flip of a switch. Sorry for all the ?'s

why?

I just never saw the need to have a switch... I just verify its in neutral, parking brake is set and turn the key.. my 01 has been this way since ive owned it.

my 14 yr old can go start it for me in the morning before work and we have never had an incident, (he wheels it pretty good to)

Vector6 I just put the fuse in the fusebox slot labeled "clutch interlock" like the owners manual says to do.

Clutch override

I want to install a clutch override on my 03 TJ. I have read a little about this and I was wondering if it is really as simple as replacing a fuse? I would like to install some sort of a switch to prevent my wife from running into anyone. Has anyone done this before? Any help would be appreciated.
