Having trouble intermittently with the interlock sytem in starting the engine. Adjusted clutch and interlock switch height. It worked fine for awhile, now it doesn't seem to matter if switch is engaged or not. Have to jump start the vehicle at the most inopportune times. I tried to jumper the wires to simulate a closed circuit, but still no luck. Is there anyway to jumper completely around the interlock system so I don't have to mess with this problem? Under the dashboard is a difficult place to work.

You wanna perform a triple bypass on the starter interlock relay-just go find the black/yellow or black and pinky remove it from the starter-now go to the parts store and get a no.10 awg, wire and a push button-hook one end of this wire to the starter and take thru the firewall, position your push button on the dash for your reach hook-up the switch up then go back out of the firewall then straight to the battery positve terminal-there's other ways of doing it-this way is for the DIY's

Next step is function check: turn key to On, step clutch in and brake now push the button-did it work.

BTW you won't be needing the clutch switch down at the pedal-save it for a decor-

Good Luck
