Yeah its not the clutch switch. Its like a toggle switch. when I unplug it. the car has nothing. Acts like a dead battery... Then when I plug it in car starts. Just want to get rid of this. Wont get out to the car till sunday. Ill take some pics and try and track these wires down.

Its this kinds of switch and its mounted in there nicely. its on the side facing the fuse box there. You would have to slide your fingers in there to switch it.

Yeah. This thing is a wiring nightmare. There are audio cables wired into a bunch of fused running all through the car. There some really ghetto crap in this thing lol. The car runs and drives great. Just wonder how people rig stuff up so bad!

house of cards. you do one thing out of desperation, pretty soon you cut corners as a main stay. Doing quality work is hard. Doing shitty janky work is easy. Sometimes they do really janky work but can't get it right so they sell the car as is. Then someone of medium talent has a hard time figuring it out due to their stupidity. That's life sadly.
