Hi funk,

If the starter is clicking, it's getting power, so the clutch switch wouldn't be the problem; it would be the starter itself. Make sure it's the starter you're hearing, though. Check for voltage to the solenoid while someone turns the key to Start. If you have voltage to the solenoid when the key is turned to start, but the starter won't operate, you have a bad starter.

The clutch switch is on the clutch pedal bracket. It should have continuity when the pedal is depressed.
