This could be more than one reason. Could you please comment below describing exactly what happens when the pedal gets 'stuck' down?
Does the pedal feel correct as you push it down? Does it change gear normally even when the pedal does get stuck?
If the clutch pedal feels wrong when you use it, the clutch fluid may be low needing to be topped up and the system might need bleeding. Is the pedal slack when you press it or pull it free? This could be a faulty return spring on the pedal.

Sorry don't know exactly but it is generally to be found in the hottest part of the engine - just below the thermostat in the housing or close by in the cylinder head, sometimes in the intake manifold if it is coolant heated and very occasionally elsewhere in the cylinder head...

First, fill the cylinder with brake fluid and then have someone in the car and under it, first crack open the bleeder valve to where it drips a bit. The put your finger over it and have the one in the car push the clutch pedal slowly to where you can tell the air is escaping. Keep finger in place and do this 2-3 times and checking the fluid level every 2 times the pedal is pushed down to insure the fluid doesn't go dry and cause more air in system. Repeat this procedure until you feel like the air is out. Shouldn't take more than 4-5 times and some take more. Hope this gets you going :o) Jesus loves you, John 3:16-17 (KJV)

If a warning light is on, there's a trouble code stored in the computer. There are well over 800-1,000 possible trouble codes in the average late model vehicle, so asking us to guess what's causing your problem without knowing the code is a complete waste of time. Get the code read. Post it here. THEN we can help

Assuming you are referring to the battery in the key fob try the link below.
If it is the car battery open the bonnet and remove the cover. Using a spanner or a socket, usually a 10mm, remove the negative terminal, (-/black). Then remove the positive terminal, (+/red). There might be a mounting clamp you need to remove to lift the battery out. It is usually across the body of the battery or around it's base.
**Note which way round the battery sits as connecting it up wrong WILL cause serious problems.**
Re-sit the battery into position.
**Keeping it the correct way round!**
Refit the mounting clamp.
Refit the Positive terminal first.
Refit the Negative terminal second.

lots of odd things can happen in fuel injected cars sometimes the reverse of what you may expect. typically a malfunctioning O2 sensor can affect adjustments to TIMING thus for same accelerator position engine revs can rise/fall or become unstable just because O2 sensor is duff. if O2 bad poor acceleration/easy stall is definitely likely due to fluctuation in timing. can also cause pinking. best to check OBD codes if you can. some do not cause engine light to show and if intermittent, are cleared if you disconnect battery. check air filter and replace. if its diesel though you must suspect fuel pressure too.
