Default 2000 Integra m/t will not crank

My 2000 Integra has been in storage for about a year. I'm pulling it out for my son to drive.

I replaced the battery, went to start the car, and nothing to the motor.

I have all the cabin and dash lights, I hear the fuel pump. But no sound from the starter at all.

I did some research here, and I've metered the the two wires going to the starter. The one directly from the battery shows 12V, but the smaller lead has no power with the key in the start position.

I had my son give me a push, the car fired right up. went to thte gas station, then the car wash (kept the car running of course).

I returned home and parked the car, then got a good laugh when the car started right up on 3 occasions within an hour. I gave the keys to my teen to drive around the neighborhood to adjust to clutch driving. Sure enough, after 10 minutes at a friends house, the car will not start again.

I regret not metering the output to the starter while it was working.

So I've read jumpering the clutch switch will determine if that is the cause...

I do see a switch on the clutch where when the clutch is out (resting) the button is depressed. Is this the switch for the clutch start switch, or is it for cruise control? Is there more than one?

I'm not good with chasing wires or power.

If the switch I found (before it got dark) is removed, do I connect the jumper wire in the switch socket?

Any other recommended troubleshooting ideas would be appreciated before I start throwing money at this.

Thanks All.

Downloaded the service manual, and found the locations and jumper points.
