Symptoms of a Failing Clutch Sensor
Identifying a failing clutch pedal sensor is not always easy, as there are a number of things that might cause your gears to switch funny or that might make you lose control of your Jeep. However, there are two key signs you can look for to rule out other issues and identify a bad clutch pedal position sensor.
For one, you can be on the lookout for a vehicle that refuses to start. This is probably the biggest sign of a bad pedal sensor, as your sensor ensures that all gears are in proper position before it will allow the key to turn. If your gear shift is in park and the brake is on and your ignition won't turn, it's probably because of the position sensor.
Another sign of a failing pedal position sensor is a vehicle that starts without the clutch pushed in. We know, this is the exact opposite of what we said above, but it happens, and it can be extremely dangerous, as it could cause your vehicle to lurch forward as soon as you turn the key.
