Question No Start, No Crank F250 2000

I have a no start, no crank problem with a 2000 F250 7.3 standard. I've researched on-line and tried the troubleshooting tips without success. The batteries are strong. The starter is good. The fuses both in the cab and in the engine compartment are good. The alternator seems fine. I've removed the ignition switch from the column and manually moved it though it's paces. When in the start engine position, there is a solenoid "click" under the dash which I assume is the normal starting relay activation.
I replaced the starter relay under the hood on the passenger side, though it was probably good since the new one acts the same. I can start the engine with the ignition on by shorting the starter relay terminals under the hood. The engine will start like this even if the clutch isn't depressed. At no time have I been able to register voltage at the small starter relay terminal that goes back to the clutch/ignition system in the cab. I've shorted that terminal (DK BL/Or) to the battery without effect. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I've pulled the switch on the clutch petal and tried to bypass it by shorting across the wires according to my understanding of the wiring diagram, but nothing happened. Still wouldn't crank with the ignition switch in start engine position. I don't know any other way to test it.

Any other way to test for an open circuit in the starter signal wire?

It's my understanding that the small dark blue/ orange wire to the passenger side under hood starter relay closes the relay when energized. Does anyone know if this is correct? If so, it would seem to me that if I energized it by jumping to it from the positive terminal of the battery it would close the relay and energize the starter just like happens when you bridge the large terminals on the starter relay.

Problem solved. It was an old Viper remote lock/unlock alarm engine kill switch. Thanks for your help.
