Re: 96 xj clutch switch

I'm pretty sure the 96 does not have one. The 95 definitely does not, but the 99 does. Too bad you posted this tonight instead of last night. My son was here yesterday with his 96, and I could have asked him. I'll email him, but he's slow to answer so some other 96 owner may come up with the definitive answer first. I'm almost positive that his does not have it.

For those unsure of what we're talking about here, we're speaking of a clutch interlock switch that requires the clutch to be depressed before starting.

Re: 96 xj clutch switch

Since when is a clutch interlock required by inspection? Ask the twit to show you the requirement in the MD code. I can't vouch for a 96 XJ, but my old 95 YJ started in gear without pressing the clutch. I think the later TJs had a fuse you could install to bypass it.

yup......I just bought an '01 TJ with the interlock. Plop a 20A fuse in the "auto trans" slot in the fuse block and it completes the circuit to bypass the switch. That was the first mod I did to it

clutch switch is considered a safety device which must function according to MD inspection....... but only if it came with it from factory (which it appears that it didn't)
