The clutch has to be pressed down in-order for it to start. There is a clutch safety switch on the clutch pedal.

You have to push the clutch in.

Yes i understand the clutch must be pushed in, I've been driving manual for quite A while now... but even thoo i push the clutch in on my first few attempts it won't start, it doesnt even crank, after about the 5 attempt turns on like a charm and works perfect for the rest of the day

It has Clutch switch may need a new one.

My truck completly doesn't start now, it isn't dead, fuel pump sounds, yes clutch is in and nothing works.

Is the starter turning the motor over?

No crank at all, i connected the starter directly to the battery and the truck turned on. Now i switch the starter relay in the fuse box and the truck seems to be working again
