wont start plz help

I parked and went in place to pee. Came out and now car won't start. I can however pop clutch to start it. So this eliminates numerous problems and leaves me with starter and electrical. I highly am leaning toward electrical because they key doesn't try to do ne thing. Just like when u dont push in the clutch. I am wondering if anyone knows of a main ignition relay or something. All help appreciated thanks

Re: wont start plz help

its the clutch safety switch. Located right behind the clutch pedal. Kinda looks like a white plunger that goes in and out of a switch.

There are two wires going to it. Cut those two wires, splice them together, and presto! your car should start.

*warning* this will allow you to start the car without the clutch pushed in, so, take extra care.

The "Redneck Repair" may do the trick, or you could replace it.
