Re: curse control

Hi Simon,
Welcome aboard!
First of all, if your car is still under warranty then get the dealer to fix it!
If not, then I suspect the brake or clutch pedal switch could be the problem. Check these are still in place in the pedal box. Another possibility is the cruise control switchgear; does the cruise lamp come on when you switch it on?

Idea Re: curse control

Hi, I've found out why it doesn't work!, the clutch pedel isn't returning back up to where it's supposed to i.e. not touching the switch. I've checked that the switch is ok and not damaged, but the problem must be related to when the small retaining clip on the clutch pedel broke while driving. I'm not sure is there is something wrong with the clutch cable it's self, maybe when the pedel was dissconected the cable adjusted to the wrong position.
I do have some resistance getting into 3rd gear if i'm accelerating hard.

hmmm must get this checked out at the service.
