Anyone disable the clutch safety switch?

I always start my truck and let it run a while before i drive it. Im sick of needed to bend over to push the clutch in to start it (or hop up in the truck). I know its not as smart as just leaving it hooked up but even if its in gear and let off of the clutch its going to take off.

Does anyone know what im supposed to do? My truck has cruise control too.

If you look under the dash at the plastic contraption attached to the clutch pedal, you'll find 2 wires running from it to a plug. Cut (or splice into) the wires from the clutch-start cancel switch, and either twist them together or run the splice wires to a momentary switch - you can find factory ones in the older Toyota trucks, and they even say "clutch start cancel" on them.

I'm not sure about that as I don't have cruise, but you're right about the switch. The ECM probably has a pin to read when you press the pedal to shut the CC off, and hitting the added switch would most likely do the same thing.

My auto truck that i made a 5speed. i bypassed it. gf tends to want to start it when i leave her in truck but just makesure you never leave it in gear and your fine.

On the trans there is 2 wires when it is an open circet the engine wont crank. so you twist together and there you go.

Its actually better for the engine to start without pushing the clutch. It does not put a load on the thrust bearing if you start it in the engaged position. Helps the bearing live longer. Some guys have had trouble with thrust in engines as low as 250,000. Bad thrust bearing = crank walking around.

I like the option of being able to turn it on or off. I like the option of being able to use the starter to move the truck a bit. A half dozen times over the past 40 years I have made my volvo's get out of the way, cleared an intersection or just in one case drove a block to a gas station on my starter. On the other hand I know what boneheads some people can be and don't want to risk the liability issue should someone else drive my truck. These babies don't stall real easy either.

that's a good bit of information! so in other words, starting with the clutch engaged is better?
