You could be right, a quick test to see if it the switch or starter would be to have someone hold the key in the crank postion with clutch pedal down and see if the small wire at starter has power, if it has power then its not the clutch switch but rather the starter itself. or you can unplug the safty switch and jump the connector and see if it starts, if it does then its the switch if not then it could be the starter, check starter for power as i listed above and if theres power replace the starter. hope this is helpful. good day.

Check for a blue snapping spark on 2 or 3 plug wires(or all of them). If you get good spark, then ignition is likely not the problem. A weak or sporadic spark could be a bad coil or coil pack, or a bad ignition module (the ignitor).Check the coils with a volt-ohmmeter per the specs for your car. The ignitor can be tested at a parts store.
If spark is good, check fuel filter, fuel pressure, check timing marks on crank pulley and cam marks, Try a little starting fluid in the air intake and see if it runs for a moment. If so, then it's likely a fuel delivery problem. If no change, then it's likely an ignition circuit problem.

if you can unplug the leads to the switch and then place an ohm meter on the two contacts, the switch should be opened when the clutch is not depressed and read ohms when the clutch is depressed
