Will disconnecting the clutch sensor on 1996 Nissan truck allow the truck to start?


Asked by Dec 08, 2013 at 12:09 PM about the 1998 Nissan Frontier 2 Dr SE 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1996 Nissan truck won't start, is not the battery, and the nipple on clutch sensor is not

1 Answer


If you're talking about the clutch safety switch, no. You'd have to connect the two wires on the plug together. Only do this for testing purposes though. That switch is there so you don't accidentally start the vehicle while it's in gear. Doing so will cause the vehicle to lunge either forward or backwards. HTH. -Jim
