    Hi Guys, sometimes, like tihs morning, the car wont start, wont crank.
    I press the start button, ignition comes on, press the clutch, press and hold the start button and nothing. Press the start button again and the ignition turns off.
    Tried using the key fob in the dash and its exactly the same.
    Sometimes I get the message "Press Clutch" although I am already pressing the clutch?

    any ideas

    Possibly a fault clutch pedal switch, but before jumping to conclusions, have you tried the obvious and making sure that the clutch is fully depressed as far as it will physically go?

    Do you have to really press the clutch hard to get it to start?

    Hi ya,

    I think its me. Just went to the car, pressed the clutch, press and held the start button and it started everytime. Guess I was either not fully pressing the clutch or messing up the start sequence. Pitty there is no way to adjust the switch so the clutch doesnt have to be all the way down for it to start.
