Default 2004 Vue 2.2L 5spd - Clutch Safety Switch

I've been thru only one switch so far in over 100k. The first time, it was an easy diagnostic, I'd depress the clutch, turn the key and nothing. Then I would let up on the clutch, depress again and it would start. Now I am getting that again so I ordered a new part as no one in the neighborhood has it currently in stock. It won't be here until next week so here's my question. Should the switch actually go while I am waiting for the new part, can I just jump out the 2 wires temporarily? Will it hurt anything in the electrical system? Obviously, I would only do this in an emergency and with the car out of gear.

No harm in jumping it. Most of my man shift cars I just did that anyway. Just remember to always put the clutch in or stick it in neutral

My switch is also headed south after 250,000 miles. I assume there is no adjustment on these switches?

Pulled my switch, seperated the case, cleaned all the black junk out of the contact area, put in a little dielectric grease, reassembled and the thing works great now. Very easy to refurb.

I have 160 thousand miles now and never had an issue but I have had other Chevy vehicles over the years where I just jumpered the wire harness with a paper clip. I guess I'll have to check this in the spring. I'm starting to wonder what might go at this mileage as I'm doing a 100 mile a day round trip commute for another 8 to 12 months. I'm driving home every night at midnight wondering how long this thing is gonna last.
