It says in the manual to depress clutch and turn ignition on. What does that do cause it starts without depressing the clutch too? Its a 54 plate 1.8 zetec (125) focus c max.
Thanks xXx

Two things
1 It means you are not turning any of the gearbox over in cold viscous oil so easier turning
2 If you have left it in gear then it won't jump forward
