Default clutch switch disconnect

How do you disconnect the switch or whatever it is that makes you have to push in the clutch to start the truck...?

Default Re: clutch switch disconnect

The Clutch Pedal Position switch would need to be jumped. If I had any reason to do that, I'd try connecting the green/brown to the black/white. That's if you're talking about the 2010. The color codes in the 91 are different.

Unplug the harness from the switch, install an automatic "blank"

But remember, your truck will start in gear.

You will still need the blank plug, or the truck wont start. And your cruise wont work either.
