It's actually controlled through the ecm. Easiest thing to check is brake lights, make sure they are not stuck on. You didn't day if it is an auto or a manual. If it's manual you need to check clutch switch. Easiest way is to see if it will start without pressing the clutch pedal down. If it does then that's your problem. After those two things you need a laptop so you can look at the inputs going to the ecm to see what is causing it not to work.
Don, Possible internal damage to transmission, take into a good shop for diagnoses and estimate on repair.

The focus clutch system is hydraulic therefor, if no movement is possible at all it is most likely that there is something at the pedal causing this. Get down there with a good light and look if the pedal swivel pin did not come out or is partially out, a foreign object that got stuck in the top movement area of the pedal ect. If there is nothing found it can be the clutch master cylinder that need repair/ overhaul.
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.
Hi mate, the gearbox is broke at all, it sound like the clutch is stuck in engaged, it will have to have the gearbox remoived and a new clutch fitted, the common fault for this is the clutch forks getting stuck in the preassure plpate, hope this helps,
clutches are hydraulic. It may be that either the clutch master
cylinder or slave cylinder are stuck or some sort of restriction in the
line. Or, it may be that the throwout bearing or pressure plate have
some sort of issue (this requires pulling the tranny and looking at the
clutch, pressure plate (plate that rides against the clutch with
springs to engage the clutch) and throwout bearing (bearing on the arm
that presses against the pressure plate to engage the clutch).
Of course, I am assuming you have checked for any outside restrictions
that would not allow the pivot arm to retract (missing spring or piece
of ice or debris stuck in there).
