I have a question because its not a first time that the engine shuts off when clutch is pressed down. Its happend 3 times now since last 2 weeks! Even I pressed down the clutch the Revs go down to 100-200rpm. No error code at all!

Pretty sure it’ll be your lower clutch switch. There are two clutch switches down behind the clutch pedal. I’m going from memory here but I think the upper one is black and white and is for the cruise control. The lower one is blue and is the one giving you trouble.

They’re not expensive and pretty easy to swap out. There’s a thread in here that deals with the issues and includes part numbers. Search for “clutch switch”
