bypass inhibitor switch?

Just a query. If you start the engine (falcon) by taking out the starter motor relay and bridging it with a wire, would this bypass the starter inhibitor swtich and start the engine if say you left the car in drive?

Re: bypass inhibitor switch?

How exactly would it do this? Can you be any more specific?

Re: bypass inhibitor switch?

It depends on exactly how you jump the relay..If you took the power terminal 30 and bridged it straight to the start wire 87 then it will start....The neutral start switch is connected usually to the signal wire either 85 or 86 ,so you are basically bypassing it..

Earth the inhibitor circuit - orange/black or blue/red usually, depending on age of the car.
This is what I did when converting from auto to manual and have had no dramas since.
