Hey I had fun this morning. Getting ready to go to class, go to start up the PZEV and blam no start. Missed Differential Equations but finally figured out the problem. Somehow the clutch sensor on the peddle isn't being pressed in far enough, I have to do it with my hand while I push the clutch down. Such a stupid reason, but I am so glad that was the problem lol.
