Why does the brake light come on when engaging the clutch - it goes off as soon as I release the clutch. It doesn't come on when I brake...?

There is ( or should be ) a switch on your brake pedal lever that tells your brake lights to come on. Could this switch be incorrectly mounted on your clutch pedal instead? Do you have a switch on each pedal? If you do the one on your clutch is so the car won't start unless the clutch is depressed. It might have the wires reversed or the switches might both be mounted on the wrong pedal.

Ac switch 2002 Pontiac has three prongs which two do you jump to get clutch engage?

Dont jump them, its not a switch, its a transducer and you could wreck your pcm by jumping the wrong one. Run a power wire directly to your compressor to get the clutch to engage. If it doent engage then, it is your clutch. Remember to first check refridgerant level and fuses/relays. Good luck.

If you allowed the master/reservoir to drain empty while the line was disconnected or installed the master dry, you may have to remove the master and bench bleed it first. Always keep the reservoir full during the process.


Your Honda Prelude 1992 with a new clutch won't engage into gear what is your problem?

If it will go into gear when the engine is off but not when the engine is running, the clutch is not disengaging. It could be the clutch, possibly warped or put in wrong, or it could be the hydraulic clutch mechanism.

The throwout bearing in your clutch is the likely culprit here. Your clutch may be shot in addition, but you are probably looking at a costly fix here.

How do you adjust the clutch pedal on a 95 wrangler?

Check this first if the pedal seems to have some slack, there is a bushing on the pedal where the arm for the clutch master cylinder attaches, this gets worn out and you will have to push the clutch all the way to the floor to disengage, replace this bushing and you will have full pedal again, its a simple operation so anyone can do it. Note, ask for the bushing for the 2004 model, Jeep has its diagrams messed up and will give you the wrong one if you go earlier than that, it looks like a little black cage, pop it into the arm, then onto the stud on the pedal, it will lock into place and viola. There is no real adjustment as far as I know. You can bleed it off with the bleeder screw but if there are any real problems then its probably time for a new clutch

What is wrong if there is no resistance in the clutch pedal for 1996 Mitsubishi Galant with manual transmission?

it means you have no clutch fluid(brake fluid) or that you possibly have a leak in the line somewhere or that it needs to be bled.might possibly be the master or slave cylinder.first check the clutch fluid resivor.if its empty then you need to top it off and bleed the line @ the master cylinder then at the slave cylinder.then find out why you have no fluid...the clutch fluid resivor is the smaller one of the two,check inside the car for a leak too,follow the clutch pedal to the firewall and you will see the small rod that goes into your clutch master cylinder,if you have a leak there the master cylinder is bad

How do you fit a new clutch cable to a Vauxhall Corsa X reg?

Check and record the thread length of the old cable found sticking out of the adjuster block on the clutch arm. Remove the securing clip and remove cable from the arm.Inside the car,unhook the cable end from the pedal. Pull the cable out of the bulkhead from the engine side,push the new one in the same way and hook on to pedal.Make sure the cable follows the same routing as the old one,no tight bends no chafing.Connect up to clutch arm and set threads to saved measurement,this will be somewhere near right. Inside car,measure distance from steering wheel rim to pedal and note it.Then depress clutch fully and re-measure the steering wheel to pedal distance. The difference between the two measurements should be 126mm to 132mm.If not correct,adjust the cable adjuster on clutch arm a turn at a time and recheck. You may go the wrong way first time,it's a bit trial and error.NOTE When correctly set up,the brake pedal and clutch pedal will be not be parallel,the clutch pedal will sit a bit higher.Lastly,refit the securing clip to the cable on the clutch arm.


What is wrong when the clutch won't go into gear?

A clutch does not go into gear. A clutch engages, Normally if a clutch fails to engage it is because it is worn. with a worn out clutch you are able to start the car in gear without your foot on the clutch and the car wont move. Normally before this happens you will notice what is known as a slipping clutch. A slipping clutch means that the engine is turning faster than it should to keep the car moving while in gear. once this starts to happen it does not take long for the whole show to come to a stand still.
