    There is a button (with a light on it) all the way to the left hand side of my dash, right beside the blank popout. Its tall and rectangular. The front was off when I got the truck and I have no idea what it does. Anyone have an idea? Its a 95 4x4. Thanks!

    Clutch start cancel

    Put it neutral and keep your foot off the clutch. Press the button and see if it starts.

    It would only be a locker if your trd. And I am pretty sure the e locker button is in the slot that is more behind the wheel. That slot is the ECT button in autos and clutch start cancel in manuals.

    Around $26,000 worth of unleaded in the fuel tank.
    It's there so you can use the starter to get the truck unstuck. The starter has tons of torque.
