My only other car with cruise is my PFL 2.5 Omega estate. I put the diagnoser on it, but its a 2000 car and does not give me brake or clutch switch data. I still wonder whether the clutch switch should go from active to inactive when the clutch pedal is depressed.
To see the same stuff on that 2.5, you need to look at Cruise Control ECU, not engine ECU, as its a bolt on system.

Interesting discovery - depressing the brake pedal, brake switches both went from inactive to active; depressing clutch pedal, nothing changed, it read active pressed or relaxed. Contemplate.
So the ECU cannot see the clutch switch.

I'd check it by replacing clutch switch with a suitable bit of wire, to see if wiring OK (on live data only, not for driving), and if it makes no difference, then get a meter out and start checking the wiring.

When I started, we were still fixing Candlesticks (early phones) ;)

Virgin grew out of the smaller cable companies like NTL and Telewest.  But their coverage is minimal.  So for the vast, vast, vast majority of us, if we want a phone line, the "GPO" have to come and fit it. Unless you live in Hull.
Why would you want to do that?
I'm sure Tiger Gonads likes it. Thats his neck of the woods?

Well, when I say "my", of course I mean "work".  But it only ever gets used when I go on hols.
Four months of the year then :D
You sound like my boss :P

and no one else but the GPO were allowed to fit one ;D ;D ;D
Whats changed?  Not a lot.

Ah, you must be too young to remember! :-* :-* :D :D ;)

But, yes things have changed a lot!

You can plug any corded/cordless landline phone into the socket, and unplug / plug as much as you like as you change phones manufactured and sold by different suppliers, instantly purchased from a multitude of outlets.

In the days I was speaking about the phones, corded of course, were always supplied by the GPO and had to be physically wired into their terminal box, after they alone had installed all the internal wiring and gone up a telegraph pole to connect your line.  All that after going on a waiting list and that could be up to a 1 year wait.  Now the speed of the process is totally different, lines/numbers, the telephones and contract can be obtained from others :)

Nowadays we also have mobiles to add to the competition to landlanes! 8) 8) :y :y
But the "GPO" still have to fit the lines ;)


And yes, I remember the Plan 1A's, or if you were proper posh, the Plan 4's, which were the first plug and socket phones in the UK. And Plan 105/107 for small businesses, and the HES stuff for homes needing a mini switchboard.

Just replace the spool if its jamming.

The first cordless I had - Wank and Decker - was superb. Auto spool never failed, batteries were good for 3 years etc.  But I left it in the garage.  The replacements since have all been utter wank  TBH.  Now back on another wank and decker, but its already playing up.

Beat me to it, just ordered a new spool ;)
:y

If the streamer is otherwise good, keep it going, as the new ones seem universally shite :(
