My scenic megane will start but only if clutch pedal is depressed (not brake pedal), and as soon as brake is applied when running, it stops. What is the matter with it?


Sounds like you have a standard transmission if it has a clutch.
Start requires the clutch to be pressed in for safety reasons.
If you have it in gear when you press the break the engine
will stall without your feathering the clutch. Sounds like you may not have learned how to drive a standard transmission car yet.
Otherwise there's a short between the clutch safty switch and the brake light circuit.

Brake lights stay on when engine is running. How do I repair??


It sounds as if your brake switch plunger is not making contact at the peddle. The way it works is when it's touching, the light is out and, when you step on the brake peddle the plunger from the switch travels outward and turns the light on. OR
The wires are corroded somewhere in the line (possibly at the rear light housing) whereby the brake light wire is powered through an active 12 volt line when the vehicle is running.

AC CLUTCH WONT STAY ON MY 2010 COROLLA


If the clutch comes on,but turns off to soon,you probably have a low charge.There are many do-it-yourself charging kits at part stores to charge it up.It is also possible the system is overcharged,but this would only be the case if there was recent service done.

1999 vw passat . brake lights stay on when headlights are on


Check to make sure that the correct bulb is installed. Usually, the brake light bulbs have two filaments inside the bulb, one for when driving at night for visual and the other turns on as soon as you hit the brakes. Now, if they are correct, then you may have a faulty brake switch.

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ7533JQ1 washing machine. It agitates and drains but does not spin. I checked the motor coupling is not worn out nor broken. This is a two speed washing machine. ...


This is a neutral drain direct drive machine which drains the water first prior to spinning. After draining out the water completely, the motor pauses then restarts to spin the tub. It is possible that the problem is in the lid switch. If the motor is running during the spin cycle then the lid switch is good, otherwise it is indeed the problem.

The problem can be either in the brake particularly the cam driver or the clutch assembly. The clutch hub is attached to the spin pinion gear and as the spin pinion gear turns, the clutch hub also turns. The clutch lining is forced against the clutch hub by the clutch spring. As the clutch hub turns, friction between it and the clutch lining causes the clutch lining to turn. As the clutch turns, the tab that holds the clutch spring on the lining, contacts the brake cam driver, releasing the brake. The tab on the clutch lining remains in contact with the brake cam driver, holding the brake released and then providing power to the spin tube through the brake release.

The basket will not spin if the brake cam driver is broken because the brakes cannot be released. If the clutch spring is weak, the friction between the clutch hub and the clutch lining is not sufficient for the clutch tab to push the cam driver and release the brakes.

Check and replace, if necessary, the brake cam driver and the clutch assembly particularly the clutch spring and the clutch lining.

Car won't stay started


When gasoline sits for that length of time it turns into a varnish like substance. It gets the consistancy of something like real sticky warm creamy peanut butter. (basically turns to thick sticky muck). Which plugs the pick-up screen on the fuel pump, the fuel injectors and can even plug the fuel lines. Fuel injectors are designed to "spray" the fuel into the intake in a very fine mist. I believe the reason it starts then dies is because even though the injectors are plugged they will "drip" fuel because of the pressure that fuel injection works on. The "drip" is just enough to fire the engine and then die.
What you can do to confirm that the problem is actually fuel related is, using a can of carbuerater cleaner (in a spray can) start the engine while spraying into the air intake. If the engine keeps running as long as you keep spraying, the problem IS fuel related. If the engine doesn't stay running when sprayed. Then the problem is NOT fuel related. I don't recommend using "brake clean" to do this because some brands of "brake clean" are non-flammable. I hope I wrote this so that you understand what to do. Good luck.

Chain not engaged when the chainsaw is running and brake is off


If the brake is not engaged the only thing it could be is the clutch, or the bar. If the bar is burnt or bent from the chain failing off then you will have this problem. But this sounds more like a clutch problem

BRAKE LIGHTS STAY ON ENGINE RUNNING BUT CAR WONT DRIVE


there is a button on your brake pedal lever that while braking gets depressed, and turns on your brake lights. Now this component is a plastic piece that can get knocked loose rather simply. You either need to re-secure this component, or replace it

(you can get this part at any junk yard for nothing more than some pocket change)

Porsche 944 Turbo won't go into gear when motor is running.


Hi mate. I'm no Porsche expert but the most common diagnosis would be clutch failure. If you can shift (even some) gears with the engine off then this would be plausible. Before looking at the complete clutch, try the master and/or slave cylinder, it's more likely to be the master. Pop the bonnet and check the level of brake fluid in the reservoir, there is no "clutch fluid", it's just brake fluid. If it's below the minimum line, top it up then see if it engages gear. Get it checked out, but tell the mechanic your theory, he'll soon confirm it if it is.
