Default Re: no start urgent

I made a bypass for the clutch safety circuit. Two spade terminals crimped on the ends of a short piece of wire. It was never that switch for me. Also I'd be shocked if you weren't getting voltage on the purple wire.

I find that when the starter is going, it is intermittent at first. Then it dies hard. If you bump start it it may work the next time. I've done it solo many times on flat ground. When my starter dies I park strategically until I can replace it.

Gotta love manual gearboxes!
