Check clutch hydraulics. Also, check clutch interlock switch (or bypass it) Does the car do nothing, click, starter cranking? or ??

Well, if it's an issue w/ you clutch master and/or slave cylinder not engaging, the car won't start.

Not true, all the car wants to see, is that the clutch switch is working. If its working, or bypassed, it should allow you to complete the starter circuit. If bypassed, it is possible to crank with the car in gear and bot have the clutch depressed.

First thing i would do is get under the car and check to see if youre getting a 12v signal to the starter solenoid when a friend tries to start the car. If you are time to look at the starter, if not work backwards through the starting circuit.
