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
