Hello all, I have worn out the clutch neutral start switch on my 85 again (the one in the car is the second one since new). So far I have not been able to find a supplier . The Fiero Store does not have them, nor NAPA or Rock Auto. Has anyone had any luck rebuilding these or found them available anywhere? Thank you.
Beginning to look like jumping the switch will be the temp fix. Looked at the one for the S10 and I may try it. Thank you for your replies.
If you do a lot of work on it, the clutch switch can be a big PITA. Every time I needed to roll the engine over I had to get in and push the clutch. It didn't break my heart when the switch broke. Jumping the wires made my life a lot easier. I drove semis from 73-89 so pushing in the clutch when I start the car is automatic for me anyway.
found these, AIRTEX / WELLS 1S5101, STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS NS88, the only difference I can find is that the rod that connectes to the clutch pedal is slightly longer. Thank you all for your help and suggestions.
When I did a search for this for some reason it didn't show any matches. Must have been the way I worded it. Thank you for going into detail as to the differences between the switches. I believe the extra set of contacts are for the cruise control . Thank you again.
OK, so from reading this and the other thread it sounds like its an easy "fix" to get rid of the stupid clutch switch and not have to push the clutch in to start the motor. If so, what do I need to do, because all my cars are manuals and each one requires the clutch to be pushed first. No problem, but if I can do something to not have too, i'd like to know what I need to do. Sounds like I need to connect two wires, what wires. I have not had to mess with this part of my car, so i'm clueless on what needs to be done. Thanks in advance.
