      My cruise control never has worked, and i'm trying to repair it. 1994 5 Speed Manual. The previous owner disconnected the brake petal sensor/plug from the car brake pedal, so I plugged that back in. So now the brake pedals fixed. The clutch petal, has a clutch pedal position switch / sensor attached to the clutch pedal. If you follow the pedal up, you'll see the contraption attached to the rod. My question is, with the cruise control, shouldn't this clutch pedal position switch serve two purposes, 1: disable the cruise control when I step on the clutch pedal, and 2: allow to car to start once the clutch is engaged only.

      My problem: The clutch petal position switch is in question to being possibly broken. I can slide this entire piece of plastic up and down, and 360º around. It seems like to me, it should screw or snap into a male/female slot. I can't find any 5-speed manuals at the junk yard to compare.


      Guys, do you think this part is going to cause my cruise control to stop working? I know all these sensors on these pedals can stop the whole cruise control system from working. Should mine be so loose and mobile?

      On this image they called it a clutch interlock switch:

      I don't have cruise control, but on my 93, that same clip on the clutch pushrod is just loosely clipped on, and can rotate and slide freely. Pretty sure that's the was it is.

      It's purpose is to force you to have the clutch pushed in when starting, you can't start without that spring circuit engaged. Not sure if or how it ties into cruise, how many wires go into on yours?

      Oh thank you for answering, very appreciated. Well I guess that is my answer, loosey goosey is how it is manufactured. I'm not sure on the wire count. I could manually count tomorrow if it would specify any answers.

      All I could tell you on the wire count is if it has more wires than mine, or the same. If it had more, that could indicate cruise tie-in.

      that switch when you step on the clutch disengages the cruise
