Starting Problem Resolved 3.4S Manual

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I had been having a problem with intermittent starting...turn the key and it starts, turn the key and just a click, repeat and just a click...then start. All very random. This is with the clutch pedal depressed. 


Well...I decided to move the footwell carpet back and the clutch pedal travels a little further...starting issues resolved! 100% 


Just thought I would post this for future reference.

Nice one top tip! If it happens again might also be the clutch switch wearing out. Not uncommon. Mines gone through 2 of them in 5 years. When it started failing I had to really press the pedal down. They’re cheap to replace.
