    The other day i disconnected my battery to attach an amplifier to it. after that, i thought i messed something up because just pushing in the clutch wasnt enough to start it. The clutch start cancel worked just fine and so did everything else so its not my battery. Then the other day, i pushed down as hard as i could on the pedal and got it to start up. Any ideas???? i haven't got a clue!

    I started a similar thread at:
    Clutch Relay

    And got plenty of advice, some useful, some not so useful. In the end, I stuck a rubber grommet on the switch under the dash. Follow the thread above if you want to see a picture of my solution.

    This might seem dumb but you didnt run your wiring behind the clutch pedal did you?

    The previous owner of my car ran a thick cable to the battery for a sub and it was routed behind the clutch pedal and I had the same problem as you until I re routed the cable. It was just thick enough to prevent the pedal from hitting the relay.
