SOURCE: Clutch pedal switch stopper
dadielz 1590: To answer your question: Yes! However, there is a trick to it. 1. Make sure the remains of the old part is gone.
The new part will be a kind of semi-clear plastic and not super had, but firm material. I will have a small knob sticking out. That is the end you are going to place in the hole.
Here is the trick>>>>Ude a little "Dish washing liquid" and put it on the end you are going to put through the hole. Once you have the soap on it, Position the part, small end towards the open hole and then pull the pedal up against the other end of the part. Carefully apply pressure, pulling it against the new part and it should just pop into the hole.

I had a problem with the interlock switch located on the brake pedal. There are too switches one for the brake lights and one dedicated to the cruise control. If either switch is acting up it will affect the cruise control. Then interlock switch is the same switch that is used on the clutch with cars that have a manual transmission. It has smaller electrical terminals in the connector than the brake light switch. You can jumper the connection and see if it solves the problem. You still have the other switch that will disengage the cruise control when you hit the brake. If that is the problem then that's the one you need to replace.

"If I disconect the switch the plug has two holes. If I use a paperclip and put an end of the paper clip in each hole the lights should go out right?"
Yes the light should go out, but if its not going out then switch is faulty or the short in switch wires.-------- the procedure is as follows for light to glow and turn off.When you press the switch, the terminals connect, the circuit completed and light is ON.when you release the switch the two terminals gets disconnected , the circuit gets cut, the light is on.In your case the circuit is not getting cut, so anywhere the switch is faulty or the wiring's are getting short.-------Get this checked.This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
