Are you saying it wont start at all? You have to push the clutch in to crank it, that is how it is designed, clutch SAFETY switch is supposed to keep it from cranking in gear!

No, It Runs. I Can Pop The Clutch. But That Switch Is Not Working Correctly. Is There A Way To Bypass It??

It is best and just as easy to replace the SAFETY switch.

Top of the clutch pedal, make sure it is this switch first may need some help from a mechanic! Can check small wire at the starter for power when someone pushes clutch and tries to crank. Good luck.
