In the vehicle, i step out for 30 minutes, of course turned off, I get back in to start. I notice that a blue fragmented rubber is under clutch pedal. I check and sensor below dash is now with a disentegrated clutch piece, so i replace with small coin and tape. I figure fine, but car will not start... Is there a fuse for the clutch? Seem like car is needing the engagement of the clutch to start., I also tried a "jump" from an other vehicle. Well car got towed home. Thanks for your assistance

    There may be two sensors by the clutch pedal if the vehicle has cruise control, take one more look. You can jump the connector with a paper click to test the sensor wire integrity. There is no clutch fuse but there is a starter siganl fuse, usually a 7.5 amps located under the dash.

    Is the car makes no noise at all.... suspect battery, battery connections, ignition key cylinder, (alara if it has one) clutch switch, or starter motor.
