Try jumping the clutch start switch wires together and see if it will start? The switch is on the pedal assembly. If it starts, there is a problem with your clutch start switch.

There is also a starter relay. I think it is located in the relay panel under the hood, if its not there it will be under the drivers side dash. Find another relay that is the same part number and switch the two. If it starts the relay that's bad.

Finally the solenoid on the starter can go bad. There are two terminal on the starter. There is a large one that runs to the battery, and a small one that runs into the relay. Unplug the small terminal. Then have someone get in the car, hold the clutch down, put the key in the on position, and use something to jump the small terminal. You can use a piece of wire from the positive side of the battery to it or something from one terminal to the other. If it doesn't start the solenoid or the starter are bad.

+1 I just had the same prob on my 06, bad clutch switch. I used to just wiggle the harness that plugs into the switch and it would start.
