because the 865 doesn't have a park position on the transmission we tend to just leave it in "H" all the time. Because its a work truck sometimes you want to just reach in and start it up but the brake switch keeps you from doing that. You have to get in and press the brake to start the engine.

The brake switch is literally on the stalk of the pedal and there is an easily accessible connector right above the pedal. Using standard spade connectors we fashioned a small jumper wire and jumped the switch. Took all of 5 mins to do and now it starts up with just the key.

Simply disconnect the connector and use a short jumper to bypass the switch.


Very handy and simple mod for those interested.
