Am not sure of the meaning of CSC or CMC, BUT....

In the pedal box, check where the pedal is pinned to the master cylinder

(light goes on!!!!CMC, etc.!!!).  Look at the holes in the master

cylinder rod.  If these are elongated, and/or if the pin is worn, it can

provide enough slack to inhibit or even prohibit clutch action. 

Temporary repair is to weld washers to the rod - permanent repair is a

new rod.
