    yes, you would still be able to pop start despite clutch switch because the switch only disables current to the starter.

I have a 2007 yaris andthe engine wouldnt makes only beeping sounds...all the lights goes on...would be really grateful if u tell me what the problem is

The first step would be to check the battery, check the cables and connections, make sure they are clean and tight with no corrosion, then check the battery itself, if the headlights are sort of dim it's a good indication that a new battery is needed or try to jump start with another car, if it starts then replace the battery. I f the battery is is known to be good and there is a single click noise everytime the key is turned then the starter is the most like cause of the problem. In case the engine turns over normally but does not fire up let me know in a follow up.

you meant its a NO CRANK engine.
silent starter, say the word silent.
even the starter relay must click.
and if head lamps die, so will be the starter.
due to a dead battery,
sounds like a bad battery to me. dead or only
if the Charge/battery lamp is off in the cluster driving. its ok. the alternator.

starter car with the jumper cables connected
and not next day.
only live jumps matter. or you go know where.
if you want to walmart they have tool there that
tests the alternator
and for phantom drains all in 6 min work, the tool does all the work.

if the battery is charged, it will crank I bet
its discharging.
for 1 of 3 reasons.
1: its bad.
2: the charge system is dead.
3: phantom drains, it goes dead as you sleep
the head lamps dead is the big clue there.

180 milli-amps is way to much draw,ford's limit is 50 milli-amps but typically we usually only see around 20-30. Now when you say fuse 2 is that in the under-hood fuse panel or the interior fuse panel? And if this vehicle is a 2007 it may still be under factory warranty which was 36 months or 36000 miles providing that the add on automatic starter is not causing your draw.Which in that case the people who installed it should be responsible for that.
