Lexus IS220 start button won't turn green help

Recommended Posts

Hello I am a new member who is pulling my hair out what little I have left, I have a Lexus IS220d that will not start, it says on the dash depress the clutch pedal, I have checked the switch at the back of the pedal and it is working, I have checked the wires going into this and have a voltage been fed to the switch, the light on the start button still stays red any help appreciated has have been scratching my head and that of 2 of my car oriented friends 

thanks in advance there has to be a Lexus genius here that knows the answer

Sorry, I am a little confused.  When you press the clutch down, is it still saying 'Press clutch', or does that message disappear, but the button still stays red?

Sorry with clutch pressed it still say press the clutch that is why I tested the switch and the power to it, both are working totally baffling me as power goes to switch and switch working even pressed it with my fingers to make sure it wasn't that the pedal was not reaching to the button 

Either way button stays red

Well, that is a strange one.

The only thing the manual suggests is checking the resistance, like soimage.jpg:
