Default need to no how to disable a toggle switch.. desperatly.thank

hi my friend drives a 95 caprice with the LT1 corvette motor.. he has recently started having a problem with his toggle switch that you need to press in while you turn the key in order for the car to start.... its a 75 amp toggle switch that has 2 wires only ( a positive and a negative) which both of the wires from the switch go to the cars voltage regulator.. the positive wire from the toggle switch goes to the same spot on the voltage regulator as the main power wire from the battery,* positive terminal. and the negative wire from the toggle switch also goes to the voltage regulator but it has its own connection spot on the voltage regulator...

now when you disconnect the positive wire or the negaitve wire only from the toggle switch the car gets absolutly no power to anything .. it must be connected for the car to be able to start..

does anyone no how to disable this toggle switch as its starting to go bad and sometimes mt friend will take like a half hour of playng with the toggle switch just to start the car.....

its only 2 simple wires but i dont no what to do if we remove the switch and wires...
if anyone can please help then i would highly appericate it and so would he.... thanks alot again bc members.....

Disconnect the wires from the switch and splice the ends together.

o.k execellent thanks for the help.... just one thing.. is it safe to put a positive and a negative wire together like that directly to the voltage meter...

also i should splice the wires together as close to the voltage regulator as possible since he will be reomoving the switch for good correct?

thanks will you rock man.....

thanks alot toastedoats.. if the engine cutoff switch is that easy to be bypassed and let the car be stolen then why was it put in....? that was just a big stupid idea in my opinion.. the vats was good enough.. even tho his car dont have it. they should have used it instead of a toggle.. especially on a police car.....

the caprice doesnt have VATS? thats odd.. my old 94 Roadmaster had it, im surprised the caprice doesn't have it, unless its a 9C1 (police package)
