This should just be a simple on-off switch. Remove the two wires leading to the switch and connect them together and that should do it.

If you have cruise control that will stop working since it thinks the clutch is pushed in all the time but thats really the only down side of it.

You could mount a hidden momentary push button switch somewhere to take the place of the safety switch, anti theft device :twisted:
