Assuming it is +2015 (did not check earlier years to see if they were the same), I think the switch is sold as an assembly.

Rockauto shows some pics.

Even the FSM seems to show the switch is integrated with the clutch master cylinder. Do you have the old one out and in hand?

If you don't want to spend a lot on a new clutch master cylinder you might be able to jumper the clutch interlock signal but then you run the risk of the car being able to start with the clutch engaged and in gear.

If you have a 2009 RT then this should fit.

To start it I think you will need to jumper pin 2 to pin 3. Not sure if PCM is looking for an open or a short to ground to start. To be honest for $88 I would just get a new master clutch cylinder.

Or you can get it cheaper at rockauto.

Use the link here to access the online chilton's manual to show you how to replace.

Ok so according to FSM with the clutch fully released you should see continuity, with it depressed it should be open. I wonder if you just disconnect the switch if the car will start?

Oh and on 2009 it looks like the switch can be separated from the master cylinder and you can buy it separately.

was looking why my dodge challenger was not starting, they parked it in my dryway and never started again, have changed all relays, fuses, starter, master key, battery and the car was ready to start, gas pump was runing, jumped the starter an car starts no issues, for some reazon the relay sends the signal to the starter but gets interrupted before starter. so what you tell is the same sympton I got. Was troubleshooting in another post, with the help of others friends, and finaly getting to this point, the only thing between the relay and the starter is the Clutch sensor as the dyagram says, "Hope" I will check it tomorrow. just check or bypass the sensor and see if it works.
the issue that confused me was that the relay send the signal but too short, barelly gives a pulse. but not strong enough.
thank you!
