The OP states that the engine makes a noise when he turns the key. That suggests power supply issue. If the clutch safety switch was not working, it shouldn't make any noise at all, just dead key.
I'm going with TS on this one: Check the battery and terminals. Just get a new battery and put it in. At least you will eliminate that variable for sure.
