Hey guys,

Just wondering if the 5spd MA67's came with neautral (clutch) safty switches from factory.

The inspection place Im at says I need to "fix" mine to pass insppection because they came from factory with them, but the MA67 manual says only the auto's had them.

Yes, no? Seamus, did you remove it at all on the blue car?

Thanks =)

As Aaron mentioned... No. Only the Automagic's have the neutral safety switch.. On the 5-speed, you can start the car in neutral w/ the clutch out (or with the car in gear, if you want to try & see your car jump forward when you start it).

Some of the later MKIII 5-speeds have a neutral safety switch, at least on the 89++'s. I know that both Chris Jensen & Keith Hart have to step on the clutch's on both of their 89's for their MKIII's to start.

Again, the MKII's (and the MKI's) don't have this feature on the 5-speeds. Have this Canadian inspection place check their information again

It's basically another "safety switch" of sorts. If you have the Cruise Control engaged, if you just tap the clutch pedal, or depress it, it will disengage the Cruise Control, to keep the engine from over revving. And to just basically disengage the CC, like tapping the brake pedal, or hitting "cancel" (for those w/ the 82/83's. 84++ does not have a cancel switch).

the way to tell is to look on the pedal bracket itself if there is a plug and should be then all you really have to do is unplug it to start the car with out pressing the clutch. i am 100% sure that all MKII's had them in 5 speed's. remember to keep it in nutral though!

no mkii's had the clutch safety switch, i forgot about it one time and my car drove off w/o me....my black 84 would start really easily in first gear and just drive off, luckily i was able to run it down, slippery little devil tried to get away.

lol, remote starter or something, trdmkii?

reminds me of another funny story. because of my friend's peugot's lack of a neutral saftey switch, he had managed to run himself over in his garage after wiring his new igntion switch backward and hooking up the negitive battery termanel from the front of the car... a neutral saftey switch would have saved him a hole in his wall, and his dignity... hehe :lol:

Look on page BE-68 in the 85 TSRM. Chris E. is right on the money. The switch on the clutch pedal connects to the cruise computer, at least on the U.S. market cars. I'm not sure if other markets have a neutral safety switch on the clutch pedal?? :wink:
