Clutch Sensor Cheat

My 06 focus wouldnt start tpday, so I found a little cheat to this. Nipping the two wires that connect to the sensor, stripping them and soldering them together. This allows the engine to turn over, registering the clutch as being down when you turn the key. My car starts fine now and theres no issues at all.

Moved to General Technical Chat.

Ford Focus General Car chat is for discussions relating to nonspecific Ford Focus models, car purchasing, auto industry news and any car talk.

General Technical Chat is the place for this. However, you'll soon find out that most people who bypass the clutch position switch do so with a paperclip or some solid insulated wire available at Home Depot for 30 cents per foot. Just bridge the 2 points on the connector, tape in place, and then when you feel like fixing the CPS- you can. Of course, my 66 Nova never had a CPS, so it's not that big of a deal not to have one. I don't have a reverse lock-out, so I understand.

Try this first, pull the plunger out, The step in the clutch to reset it. Works sometimes.
