Question clutch safety switch, svt focus

Hi all from Ga.: I'll try this once again. I am having intermittent probs. with the switch that requires you push the clutch pedal down, for the car to start. Is it the orange switch,(cruise control), or the black one with 2 wires going to it??? svt focus, in ga.

Its the black on with the two wires going to it, i just did this on my race zx3 today, you can buy pass the switch if you cut the 2 wires off an inch or 2 from the plug so if at one point you want to put it back you can. Once you have them cut, strip them and put them together. Put a cap on them and your done, but remember from then on make sure the car is out of gear b4 starting and not using the clutch. Any questions just pm me, im on here alot.
