When you get a new vehicle it happens. I will tell you a funny story
which happened back in the eighties when manual shifts first started
having the clutch safety switch.
A girl who worked at the company where I did and her husband bought a
small car with manual shift and thought the battery had died because it
made absolutely no noise when the ignition switch was turned. They were
pushing it to get it started only to find out about the clutch safety
switch. I think they called the dealer and the salesman informed them
about the new gadget.
One more thing you need to know is the fuel inertia switch which operates
when a collision occurs and must be manually reset is located in the
trunk on the right hand side along the top of the carpet near where the
trunk light is. It is something you might check if you find you aren't
getting fuel to the engine.

Someone in this group was kind enough to post it but I have forgotten who
Seems to me in the ford rangers they are somewhere on the passengers
side near the firewall. I used to travel to work with a buddy who had a
ranger and once and awhile his truck would shutoff, and it was because
my feet somehow wandered in and stuck this switch
Anyone else ever have that problem?
