I envy you guys. Seems that my clutch switch has been disabled (i.e., I can start the car without having to depress the clutch), and I'm wondering if that has something to do with the fact that I cannot seem to get launch control working

I would think that is why you can't get the lunch control to work... makes sense to me..

No, those are 2 different switches that aren't related. However, that's an extremely easy switch to reconnect. Both of them are right under the driver's side dash right along the clutch pedal.

Mate, I'm 6ft 3in. It's a wee squeeze for me to get into THAT space. If anyone has any sort of wiring diagram, that would really work. I wish I did know what the 3 wires were supposed to do, though

Warr, I won't need the clutch switch connected for launch control to work, right?

I'm 6'2". You have to get in there by opening the driver's side door, leaving your legs outside the car, and crawling your head/arms/torso up under the dash. You can see fine once in there with a flashlight.

The three switches do this:
Lowest - starter switch (I disconnect this always)
Middle - cruise control (inactive)
Top - stationary rev limiter (must be connected for launch control to work)

As you can see, I keep my starter switch disconnected, but I use launch control, so that answers your question quite well.
