It could be that you are not pressing the clutch in far enough, got caught out on a Toyota recently and I had to press it incredibly hard to the floor for it to recognise the clutch was depress which made me think it is an adjustment required for the pedal switch

Hello Michael, 

I think Trevor raises an interesting possibility, and if this were mine, I would be giving the behind-and-above clutch pedal area a good squirting of contact cleaner to ensure the contacts on the switching arrangements are as good as they can be. Such areas get more than their share of dust and debris. Always worth a try! 
Kind regards,

Gareth.
