clutch interlock switch


Recommended Posts

ok guys, i am totally lost. i have seen other similar posts that describe my problem where when i trun the key everything lights up but engine don't start. all sugestions are looking at the clutch interlock switch. i got down and looked around the clutch, and the only part that i can remove is i believe the clutch cruise control switch. its got a push switch at one end on the clutch padel side and the red cruise control connects to the other end. i do see a steel plate with two wires connected to it. is that the clutch interlock switch? if it is, it can not be removed and cleaned like some people have suggested.

i am not sure if my problem is the clutch interlock switch. even though i have exactly the same sympton, but if i turn the key and hold it for 5 to 10 seconds, it will start. but it is getting worse. last few days, i have to try 4 or 5 times before car starts. each time i have to turn, hold it, take the key out and put it back in and repeat for the car to start. can this be something else? please help a 2000 s. :(

Unless someone took yours out, you cant miss it, grab the first 2 wires you see (on or near the clutch arm) and pull them off and jump them together with a little piece of wire. If your car starts….

Regards, PK

If you still don’t get it, push the clutch with your arm and see what’s happening
