Did you figure out the clutch switch?
Steve said one is cruise cancel and the other is clutch start cancel and both can go. And that he never got your email.

Got it, Steve emailed me some helpful instructions last week.

The brake switch is the tricky one. It is a 4-wire switch that switches different circuits closed in each direction (brake off or brake on). To make matters worse, the ECU monitors both and the stop lamps too. Some folks have gotten clever but end up with impossible brake value codes flashing the glow plug light on the dash and other issues.. seem the simplest route is to zip-tie the plunger in the 'brakes-off' position so the ECU never sees brakes at all...

Reported: Test drive went well if really noisy in the cabin. Need to add an isolator to the pendulum mount for sure and maybe more than that...

Still some more work to go. Maybe a video later

Still have to deal with the clutch and brake pedal switches. I am running a pressure switch for the brake lights so the pedal switch needs only fool the ECU into never seeing brakes applied so that brake and throttle can be applied simultaneously without fuel cut. Not sure what to do with the clutch pedal switches. Am I correct that they are only used to cancel cruise control?[/quote]

Software tuning can delete the two foot driving ecu problem. In fact it can do away with other things like limp mode etc.
