Power drain while depressing the clutch

I have an 89 sammy and whenever I FULLY press down on the clutch pedal, electrical power is drained (it manifests when the headlamps and other lights/lamps dim, wipers slows down, etc.) and the power surges back again after i release the pedal. This happens when the engine is either running or not. I have checked the fuse for close and short circuits...found nothing wrong. I'm puzzled. I believe that there is no electrical components in the clutch/tranny or is there? Can anyone help me on this?

Just check on your battery groundings, you should have a wire attached to your body and your engine

It should have a clutch safty switch, what it does is if you try to start the car without the clutch pushed in it wont start. that switch could be trying to ground its self out. check where the clutch pedal is and you should see a form of push switch attached to it, check for exposed wiring on etc

How do I gravity bleed an entire hydrolic clutch system on a 1990f1504.95speed trans


Hi Billy:
The procedure for bleeding all hydraulic systems is similar.
Bear in mind that hydraulic fluid is a liquid so any bubbles or air voids should end up slowly rising to the high points. That's why pressure bleeding tends to be more effective.
1) Fill the reservoir
2) Locate the bleed valve on the slave cylinder.
3) Place the correct size box end wrench on the bleed valve.
4) I like to attach a clear plastic drain hose to direct the waste fluid to a container.
5) Have a helper pump the clutch pedal several times and then continue to hold it down.
6) "crack" the bleed valve allowing the pedal to fully depress. Close the valve before allowing the helper to release the pedal.
7) Repeat as necessary until all trapped air is expelled and the clutch pedal is not "spongy" when depressed.
8) Top up the fluid as required throughout and when this procedure is completed.
Hope this helps.
Cheers.

Why is clutch pedal making a single clicking noise everytime it is released ?


The click you are hearing is most likely coming from the clutch safety switch, which prevents the car from starting unless the clutch is fully depressed. Some vehicles use a relay to activate/deactivate the safety feature when the clutch pedal is cycled.

Engine revs but no acceleration


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. Or one of the CV joints is detached from the gear box. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

89 Camry won't start!


Check for power on the small wore at the starter with the key in the crank position. If there is power there and your sure the battery is good than the starter is bad. If there is no power work your way back to the neutral safety switch on the clutch pedal. There should be power in and out with the key in the crank position and the pedal fully depressed. Make sure there is not a balled up floor mat behind the clutch pedal. Couldn't tell you how many times I charged customers for a tow and an electrical check and removed there floor mat! If there is no power to the neutral safety switch than the problem may be a little more involved. I need to know if it has a four cylinder or v-6 That should give you a couple things to check in the mean time. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Depress clutch turn key dash lights up. No click no nothing


you may have a bad clutch switch which will only allow the car to start with the clutch pedal depressed.it allows power through the switch only with it depressed to start the car so you won`t start the car with it in gear causing an accident.there will be a switch that the clutch pedal pushes against that allows power to flow through it to start the car.there should be power on one side with the key turned on and power on the other side with the clutch depressed.

It should have a clutch saftey switch on the clutch pedal.Its a saftey feature simular to a neutral saftey switch it will only allow the engine to crank when the pedal is fully depressed.

Clutch will not go down


A "hard" clutch is also a common problem. All clutches require some amount of force to depress fully. If you have to press hard on the pedal, there may be something wrong. Sticking or binding in the pedal linkage, cable, cross shaft, or pivot ball are common causes. Sometimes a blockage or worn seals in the hydraulic system can also cause a hard clutch.

2004 Grand Am with manual transmission. Press clutch pedal to floor but does not spring back and cannot shift gears. Is this a hydraulic fluid proplem?


yes,

you have air in the hydraulic system.

get a buddy to push the pedal for you. locate the oil drain on the clutch.

1. pump the pedal couple of times, then press and hold hard to the floor.
2. while holding the pedal, release the drain. after it squirts, re-tighten.

repeat the steps untill the pedal is firm and there is no more air bubles when draining.
