    Check the switch under the dash above the clutch pedal assembly. It may need adjusted.

    ^ this.



    Or if you have a thick floor mat or two you can't put the pedal all the way down.

    Seems pretty obvious you wired in the new push button ignition switch in such a way that it conflicts with the OEM clutch start switch circuit.

    Mines doing the same thing, only I don't have the clutch cancel button. I found the switch, just haven't adjusted it. It should take about 2 minutes.

    OK - I see ... There's been a wave of folks installing push-button start switches on their Tacos lately, and I misinterpreted the OP to mean he was referring to a newly-installed push switch, not the clutch start cancel button.

    I would check floor mats, then actually take a closer look at the switch. I had a minor version of this and it was just because the floor mat had pushed forward and was under where the clutch pedal almost hits the floor. Didn't bother the shifting, just the starting of the truck.
    It's one of those things that's so obvious that it can be missed...
