Re: Clutch pedal and switch

Ok, so today I got my fiat 500 back from the garage and my wallet is 320 pound lighter. I needed a new clutch pedal which the mechanic bought from fiat and charged me 118 plus VAT. Part of the pedal have broken away from where it is welded and it is this part that operates the clutch switch. The clutch switch is integral to the operation of the stop/start. Anyway he installed the new pedal which took him two hours to do, charging 75 per hour plus VAT. He reset the error codes and everything is now working fine. The stop/start operates as it should and the gear shift indicator also shows on the screen.

Thank you to everyone that took the time to read my posts.

Regards,
Babs

Re: Clutch pedal and switch

Thanks for taking the time to let us know the end result.

I am by no means a technical/mechanical expert, but I am glad my suspicions about the clutch switch being linked to the S/S system proved to be right!

Pleased to hear it's all working again.

Re: Clutch pedal and switch

I've had this exact problem on my twinair 2012. The change up indicators stopped working, the accelerator pedal response went crazy and the hillholder/3000rpm limit with the clutch pedal depressed stopped working. My local alfa/ fiat specialist diagnosed the same broken semicircular part of the pedal assembly had come adrift but managed to re weld it, hopefully stronger than before. 150 all in so not too bad. Interestingly, the parts people he ordered from said they'd never been asked for a clutch pedal assembly so obviously not a regular problem. By the way, the stop start never worked on this car, even with a new battery. I don't think many do.
