Bought an '89 f150 with a 4 speed manual in which you had to depress the clutch to start it (aka neutral switch) only you really had to slam the pedal into the floor to get it to connect. So I just bypassed it.
So in your case, I wouldn't bother hooking up the neutral switch unless the switch is already there (located on the firewall just above the accelerator) in which case just plug it in.
Just make sure your not in gear or have the pedal depressed when you start just like the older models in the previous fifty years.
Oh yeah,... and your cruise control will not disengage when pressing the clutch; but I always tend to tap the brake in such cases anyways.
