A friend was driving me home the other night as I'd had a pint and I made a startling discovery.
My car will not start without the clutch being pushed down. I've had the car 4 years and never noticed this simply because I always put my foot on the clutch before I start any car.
My friend however puts the car in neutral and then starts it. So the two of us were sat in the car and it wouldn't start. We swapped around and I gave it a go and away she lit. Swapped again and dead. Took ages to figure it out. I thought he was taking the piss tbh.
I presume this is some sort of safety feature, but as I said I had no idea about it. Has anyone else ever discovered a feature after Driving a car for years???
