Mk7 1.4 Automatic Transmission - Engine Starting Question


Recommended Posts

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!

Yes, me too. My last car was a Honda Civic with the i-shi*t gearbox and I think that was where I got into the habit as I think the brake had to be pressed on that to start it.
