Anyone got any clues why the brake lights come on when I depress the clutch pedal on my '93 ST GQ, there's a relay type switch connected to the top of the pedal the same as the brake pedal,reason unknown ?
I can disconnect it without any worries but am curious as to why it is there in the first place.

rd,
Could just need a bit of lubrication, the pedal pivots go tight with red dust and other contamination. The brake pedal can get dragged with the clutch pedal when it's pressed until the brake pedals free travel has been taken up. The pivot bushes dry out, hopefully a bit of WD 40 will fix your problem.Keep the shiny side up

Do you have cruis control that is the only reason i can think to have a clutch sensor. If so and you do use your cruise control i suggest you dont disconect because otherwise you will find out if your rev limiter still works.

rd,
Doh....Sorry, wrong bus, the pedals are independant, I got mixed up. Mines a '92 ST diesel with no sensor on the pedal and no cruise control, I'm not aware of what the sensor on the clutch pedal would be for, struggling to imagine what it's for, I would of assumed that the sensor for the cruise control would of been on the brake, but I could well be wrong, interesting issue.............Keep the shiny side up

Martyn, If you've got a cruise control fitted to a manual vehicle you need a switch on both the clutch and brake pedals. the one of the clutch deactivates the cruise when the pedals depressed, otherwise the engine can be over reved.
