What do you mean bypass the interlock to bypass the switch all you do is put a jumper wire between the two wires on the switch if you have power to the starter solenoid with the key off the ignition switch is bad in the steering column. If the temp guage stays up to temp with the key off the ignition switch is bad. Mine used to drain the battery after a few days sitting and found out the computer relay was stuck on the engine would shut off but the power was still going to the computer. The computer relay should be next to the fuel pump relay.

mine has 6 wires for the clutch interlock. Thanks i will check the computer relay if i can find it i dout it will be where they are stock as i switched the wiring harness from the vehicle. As for the started il just do the race type toggle switch/button start. now i have to wait till monday to check though -.-'
