This could have been bad....
I swapped from a manual to an automatic in my 2004 4x4. I've been driving it, but haven't finished the wiring yet. One example is the neutral saftey switch. I haven't wired it for the new tranny. I have to push in the non functional clutch pedal to start it. All has been fine until Last Friday.
We get in the Mach 1 to drive to missouri. I push the clutch in, start the engine, and almost immediately release the clutch. It was a new habit from driving my truck. It lurches forward, missing the stone wall by inches.
I got the switch hooked up in my truck today. Problem solved. No damage done thank goodness.
