So I read a post on how to adjust my clutch pedal. My truck was engaging the clutch way too high making all of my shifts jerky and just making the truck uncomfortable to drive. I looked at the threaded bar connecting to the clutch pedal and it was extended all the way in. I brought it in a good bit by threading it in and now she shifts great. Really made a world of difference. However i noticed there was a switch that when the pedal was released it would engage the swit h. Now the pedal is lower it no longer hits that switch. I have no idea what the switch does or why its there. Can anyone enlighten me? I tried adjusting the bar so the pedal still hit the switch but it shifted like crap and my truck jerked around every time I shifted.

The switch can also be adjusted, It's probably your cruise control switch just unplug the electrical and you'll see a locknut that you can loosen to move it

I did adjust it. I adjusted it all the way towards the pedal but it still didnt touch. If its my cruise. Could i just tape the switch down or maybe jb weld a nut or something on the pedals perch so it depresses the switch. Seems to be poorly designed

If it's adjusted all the way try taking out the switch completely, removing the lock nut, and putting it back without, that should give you an extra quarter inch or more

Is the plastic cruise control bump stop on the pedal in good shape? That can also be made longer with a nut and bolt in place of the stopper

If it's on the clutch pedal, it's probably the clutch switch for the starter, to prevent it from starting when the clutch pedal is not depressed.

That one is at the bottom of the pedal stroke, the switch he's talking about is at the top of the pedal stroke for the cruise control

You can bypass that cruise control switch if you like, just tap the brake pedal (to turn off the cruise control) or switch off the cruise control switch before changing gears while the cruise is on !!!

My 1988 B2200 and 2004 Frontier - both 5-speeds with aftermarket cruise control - do not have that clutch switch either; basically, I was too cheap to but that accessory switch and wire it in !!!
