Interconnected? VDC, hill start, brake lights
Hi, really hoping you can help. Brera recently failed MOT on hand brake. Local mechanic removed wheel, brakes etc, tightened hand brake and also pumped up the brakes (or something like that) which he said had clearly not happened when the pads were fitted approx a year ago by another mechanic. Since getting the car back (car passed MOT) my brake lights are on all the time, intermittently I am getting VDC and hill start failure and possibly unconnected, I my cruise control is not working (light on dashboard but will not engage the cruise control). Are all these interconnected? I had my head under the dash yesterday evening and noticed that the brake pedal is not engaging the white plunger (which turns the brake lights off). My theory is, that when the mechanic 'pumped up the brakes' this has dropped the brake pedal slightly, hence no engagement with the white plunger.
Going back to the mechanic tonight, so would be great to go a little forewarned/armed with some info. Thanks in advance
