Default Cayman Won't Start: Get the message 'Clutch needs to be depressed'

I have a 2007 porsche cayman that purchased six months ago as a flood car. I bought it as a DIY project. In order to get it up and running, I changed the fused box, relay box, all the computers on board (ECU, Driver assistant module, module inside the trunk, module inside the glovebox, and much more).

Now my problem is that the car does not start. I turn the key, but get the message that the “clutch needs to be depressed.” Obviously I try doing that, but it still gives me that message I checked the two limit switches for the clutch, and they’re look ok.

I should mention that I tried bypassing the switch (theres two, afaik -- a red one and a gray one) as well and still no luck. I even used an Ohm meter and all seems well.

Do I need to take the car to the dealer to reprogram/reflash the ECU to work with the other components? The reason I ask is because I had purchased the different modules and ECU from various places, so I am thinking if that could cause the issue?

Any ideas as to what else I could try?

Thanks in advance…
