Check the clutch interlock relay (under the hood), as well as the switch itself. Look near where the clutch pedal arm pivots, you should see an electrical connector with 2 wires coming off of it - to check if the switch is bad, try disconnecting the connector, and using a jumper wire to connect the two pins on the connector side, not the switch side. Be absolutely certain that the car is not in gear BEFORE you turn the key! If the car starts, its the switch - otherwise, try replacing the relay. Hope that helps!
