consider me an ignoramus but have no idea what an "interruptor" is....this is a 4WD thing...because these systems are entirely hydraulic...the only switch is for the hydraulic brakes...I do not follow where/what we're talkin' about here~


Yes you can jumper it, just remember after doing that it will crank over even through the clutch is no longer pushed in. So be careful.

really?,,,,must be a "modern" thing....have never seen one...what's it supposed to stop you from pressing the clutch? oy vey~


No, it prevents the engine from cranking over unless the clutch is depressed.
