Where was this stated? I have just looked through waht I thought was the entire saga and missed it.Interesting, autoraider this car was throwing a P0807 code. Maybe that may be the source to that.
Thanks JohnWR, it was a separate conversation that took place in the DMs that is too long to type out here. Long story short, there was a code P0807 that was picked up by a scanner but no telling how old it was. The current plan is to fix all of the known Issues, and then see what codes the car throws. It should all be going back together today/tomorrow to get it back up running and driving. i have a Tech2 emulator to be able to plug in and read live data so that should help too.
Hence the reason i discourage using a mix of PM and post for this sort of thing. Pieces of data get left out and make troubleshooting more difficult.Thanks JohnWR, it was a separate conversation that took place in the DMs that is too long to type out here. ........
I wish I knew more about the ignition sequence to get rid of that push start. It looks like the push button has the wires running to the relay in the fuse box and that’s all. My (limited) understanding is that the clutch positioning sensor will let the car start without pushing in the clutch (although I have not tried this yet). So if the clutch positioning sensor goes back in and plugged into the ECM, it should revert back to OEM?

Sorry to cause additional confusion. It appears I checked out this car before @AutoRaiders purchased it. In summary the car was not as advertised and I had to walk away empty handed. When I saw the description of all the issues with this car I got a bit of deja vu and later confirmed through our conversation that it is in fact the same car. While conversing I thought I should pass on everything that I discovered about the car while I was there. Some of those issues were quite a few codes. @AutoRaiders is definitely nobler then me in his attempt to restore this car.Thanks JohnWR, it was a separate conversation that took place in the DMs that is too long to type out here.

I got a little bit of time to work on the car and after looking closer, the stock CPP sensor was there all along and in position, just unplugged. I plugged it back in, does it still need to be calibrated or should it function as normal given that it was the original one? The Tech2 is an emulator that my neighbor is graciously letting me use (and helping with it’s use). IF it needs to be calibrated, will that be able to do it also or does it have to be Tech2 specifically?Hence the reason i discourage using a mix of PM and post for this sort of thing.

The P0807 is a live code that is caused by the lack of a CPP Sensor. It will certainly be there when you power the car again.
Yes, the hotwired start button will let the starter turn the engine over without the clutch being released.
You need to install a CPP Sensor, then use the Tech2 to calibrate it. At that point you should be able to start the car normally, unless something else has been hacked.
Does the key have to be in the ON position or vehicle running? Just want to verify I am taking the right steps in case it is reading 0v.That plug is magnetic. Its doing what it should. Clean that crap off of it and put it back to continue cleaning the fluid. But with that much iron filings on it you may have a problem with the tranny.
(Voltage(E) is potential, Current(I) is electron flow, Power is Voltage times current. To measure the VOLTAGE in a wire without cutting it or accessing either end, push a straight pin thru it and put the meter probe on the pin. Just remember to remove the pin when done.!
