What would be better is if they would tie the transmission's neutral switch (on manuals that have them) into the start circuit somehow. That same truck I mentioned has a neutral switch on the trans to cancel cruise control if you pull it out of gear. If they can do that, then why can't that switch tie into the starting circuit so that if trans is neutral, it bypasses the clutch requirement?? I dunno. Would be nice.I've been leaning this way as well. I don't like the switch at all - BUT - in this day and age of idiots, I don't want to get sued because some moron doesn't know to push the clutch in OR make sure the vehicle is in neutral. I'm thinking about adding a PBNO on the dash wired across the clutch switch. Then I can crank without depressing clutch if I want to.
