It turns out that it was the little plastic/vinyl tab that presses down on the clutch switch which took a few days to crumble and basically fell out yesterday before I left for work. I'll have to pick up a replacement but for the time being I can actually get my big toe to depress the switch when I start the car. So a suggestion to all . . . I know the parts are inexpensive so if your car is starting to get a little old (two 13-year-old SE-Rs for me) you may want to go ahead and replace both brake and clutch switches.

I would rather disable mine instead of replacing the unit.

While that has been considered, I like the safety issue that the switch covers. Call me old fashion but I park cars in gear with the parking brake (incorrectly known as the emergency brake) pulled and the thought of uninteded acceleration is not good.

Old fashioned actually is if you have no switch. :)

True :) Guess after 13 years of starting the car by depressing the clutch has become old habit to me.

For my '92 NX2000, the Part # on the clutch switch is : 25300 62J00

it sells for $14. 34 @ Nissanparts.cc

FYI

Doy you have the part # for the brake switch?

My friend, the same happened to me like a month ago. I just put a pastic bolt and nut where that vinil tab was. I bought it at PepBoys and that solved the problem. Just cost me one dollar and some cents. ;)

But now I have to change my starter. For the past two days I'm having some trouble starting the car. I think 11 years is enough for the old one. :mad: ;) Well, at least I have something to do this weekend :tongue: :D
