Start engine w/o Clutch engaged?

Hey I think I read this somewhere before but forgot where

Isn't there a way I can start my truck without having to push the clutch pedal in?

Not sure... but my jeep does...

My old Mazda would do it sometimes.

I know old TOYOTA's had clutch override buttons you would push in instead of the clutch.

Free bump!

Clutch position sensor located on the rod that goes from the top of the clutch through the firewall. There is a little rectangular box on it, twist it and pull it off. I did that when I worked on my buddys 98 f150 should be relatively the same.

Eh I unplugged it and no-go. That's where the damn squeakin' has been comin' from when I push the clutch though lol.

Tomorrow I'll bust out the ol' circuit tester and see which wires in that plug are gettin' fire when the clutch is in and run a jumper.


If anybody has any ideas before I start splicin' and butt connectin' tomorrow feel free to share

I figured it out. I dug around some more on the forums. For anyone else that might be lurking, just jump the 2 red wires with blue stripes on the safety switch plug

Hmm much have been done by previous owner before I bought the truck since mine does it already!!. Its nice for when its cold out, open door, keys in ignition and turn on glow plugs, push E brake with my hand, shake the stick to neutral, and fire truck up. saves you from climbing in truck to start and climb back out, since I have to brush the truck off every morning.

Similar to what afblues said. In the winter, since I leave my keys in my truck (very rural area), I can run out in the mornings, unplug the block heater, wait to start, crank, make mad dash back to the house
