Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.
You have a safety switch that is controlled by the clutch pedal, it sounds like this safety switch is not making good contact with the actuator on the clutch shaft so that it is not being depressed far enough to engage the switch without really stomping on the pedal. I would check to see if the switch has possibly come loose or shifted just a little so that it is not working properly. Thanks
