Mk7 1.4 Automatic Transmission - Engine Starting Question

18 October 2014 - 10:57 AM

Can any member with a Fiesta 1.4 Automatic (non keyless) tell me whether it should be possible to start the engine WITHOUT first depressing the brake pedal? I have always pressed the brake pedal as the manual instructs but have now discovered that mine will start up without the pedal pressed.


My cruise control is not working so I am suspecting that the brake pedal switch may be at fault if it is permanently registering that the pedal is depressed. The brake lights are fine, but they controlled by another switch on the pedal.


Thanks in advance for any answers!

Cruise Control Intermittent Fault

10 October 2014 - 03:06 PM

My 60 plate Fiesta 1.4 Titanium Auto went in for service & MOT 2 weeks ago before we went on a weeks break in Northumberland. All the way there and all the time we were there the cruise control would not work at all. Today, after deciding to ring the dealers when we got home, it started working when I tried it on the A1 and then worked faultlessly all the way home!


I have had a look under the bonnet for any loose connections and cannot see anything obvious so I am looking for help with what might be loose or damaged. Has anyone else experienced this issue and got any tips for rectifying? I certainly don't want to book it into the dealers just to hear them say "we cannot find any fault sir"!


Can the steering wheel buttons be cleaned or accessed without totally dismantling it?


Any help appreciated :)
