Thanks for posting

There is another clutch switch on the clutch pedal that is most likely causing this, it completes the circuit when you push the clutch all the way down, by using the switch on the dash you are bypassing the clutch pedal switch. This kind of like a stop light switch but it's on the clutch pedal, the switch is usually mounted on a bracket, when the pedal is depressed the plunger makes contact and completes the circuit to the starter. A common problem is that the pedal may not go down wnough to depress the switch, this can be caused by thick flooemats or more than one floor mat so check for this as well, other than that I recommend that you replace the clutch pedal switch..
