Default Neutral Safety Switch

truck is a 89 ranger. how do i bypass the neutral safety switch? truck will not start by the key but i can jump the starter solenoid and it starts. im having problems with the clutch master cylinder losing presure and i have been removing the clutch master cylinder like 3 or 4 times and i think something came lose and thats why it will not start by the key. i have already replace the start solenoid and it didnt fix it. On the clutch master cylinder it has a plug in with 5 wires black, white, green, and two pink wires. i think it the two pink wires but everything i has read about says nothing about the same color wires i have.

You mean the CLUTCH safety switch? I believe it's the 2 red (maybe purple, can't remember) wires on the plug.

Right, the neutral-safety keeps you from going into 4-Low, but the clutch-safety prevents juice to starter.

it has been a while since i put mine in, but its just a switch, you push in the clutch it completes the circuit, you should just have to cut the 2 wires on the switch and hook them together to complete the circuit, this is all assuming that the clutch safty switch is bad

It's probably the 2 pink wires. If not, start jumping random wires on the plug till it works, I've had to do it before.
