Question about 1993 Ford Escort 4 Door
The clutch switch is designed to prevent vehicle from accidentally engage the starter unless the clutch pedal is depressed. (It is the equivalent to the Neutral Safety Switch for automatic transmissions.)
Pressing the clutch pedal by itself will NOT activate the starter unless the key is in the RUN position.
Check your ignition switch. it may be stuck on RUN.

Yes, the clutch pedal has a relay switch that tells the starter that it's in neutral. The switch could be bad (if it worked recently you prob don't need to adjust it). You can also check the fuse, those are the easiest solutions. My first guess would be to go to the fuse and check, then check the connection to the clutch switch and make sure you haven't come disconnected, have a buildup on the connection, and don't have any worn (bare) wires touching a body part that's metal (bad ground or ground-out).

If the clutch in your car is hydralic there is no way to adjust that type of clutch. That you describe the clutch as being hard to push and that you have to have the clutch "right down on the floor to engage a gear" is an indication that the clutch is worn and needs to be replaced. If the clutch in your car is pushed by a cable, the cable might be adjustable and if that is the case you might get a few more months of use from the car, but the fix is still the same, you will need to get a new clutch put in your car.

YOU DO NEED A NEW DISC AND MOST LIKELY A MASTER AND SLAVE HYDRAULIC CLUTCH CYLINDERS, THE STICKING MAY BE DUE TO OVER TRAVEL DUE TO THE WORN OUT DISK.
