Clutch Switches, Clutch Starters
The clutch switch is a small device that won’t allow the car to be started if the vehicle is in gear. If the clutch is pushed in then the clutch switch will allow the vehicle to be started. If the clutch switch is broken, the vehicle will have to be put into neutral to be started, or the clutch pushed in to get the vehicle to start up. Most manufacturers recommend the clutch switch be in good working order to ensure the safety of the operator. But some people believe that bypassing the clutch switch, they can get more horsepower out of their vehicle. When the clutch switch is not working properly, it can be adjusted, or replaced. It is usually accessed by removing the cabin instrument panels. It can be worked on from the inside of the car most easily. It is connected to the starter instruments.
