They are relatively inexpensive so I would just replace it. Yes you can bypass it but that would not be safe at all. Bypassing safety features gets people killed. Could you live with yourself if a small child turned the key in your truck and ran over one of their friends? Please just replace it.

Now a good idea at all. Back in the 60's police departments were transitioning from standard, on the column three speeds, to automatics. For the old timers it wasn't to difficult as we were always looking for the clutch when we entered the car. The newer officers had the problem. If they were use to driving the automatics, when they got into an older standard, they would be piling into parking lot walls or the vehicle parked in front. Purchase the safety switch.
