Power Stroke clutch footpedal dead man

I'm having trouble with the clutch pedal. I have to smash it into the floorboard before the ignition will fire while holding the start key in the start position. There's a sensor that slides on the clutch master cylinder shaft. Is this the problem, or is it something else? thx. Kevin

on one of our F450 wreckers the firewall was flexing and that was the problem, there was a brace right from fords for that fix... that could be your issue as well

It could be the flex or worn bushing. Could be a bad switch also. I took mine off, pulled it apart and reversed the contacts to make it closed all the time. I went ahead and bought a new one later, but it will get you going.
