    Default Spoons VXRD Problem.....

    Hmmm..... Rather annoying....

    Driving to Westerham yesterday morning, sat on the M40 southbound with cruise control on...... and.......

    ..... lost all power......

    What had actually happened was the cruise control had disengaged by itself ?????

    So I reactivated it.... its fine, about 2 minutes later.... it disengages again, by itself...

    So I sort of gave up thinking it would reset itself, or sort itself out when I restart the car on my return journey.....

    But no !! its still the same..... any ideas ???

    Sounds suspiciously like your clutch pedal switch is playing up - common problem. I believe it's the spring in it that loses it's spring so just the weight of the pedal can make the switch activate and therefore cancel the CC. You'd need to get a complete clutch pedal switch - not expensive and easy to fit.

    just to test that theory i'd go on the motorway, activate the cruise control and keep the clutch raised using the top of your left foot, if the CC does stay engaged then you've identified the problem for sure, but if it drops out again then it's not the spring at fault

    Have you never seen the film Christine Steve? you went to Silverstone and played with other girls, she VXRD was watching and she wasn't happy with you having CARnal knowledge with them.

    Maybe the problem is the nut behind the steering wheel Steve?

    What about the Brake pedal switch....if you have a fault in there that would cause the CC to be switch off.....Right?
    Same case with clutch I might think...

    Yep it could be the brake switch, but it seems to be the clutch one more often.
