    Does the pedal test really exist?

    Read about the pedal test and was advised to do it get fault codes for the problem on my 53 plate eco4 (1.7).
    However, after reading how to do it I have tried on several occasions and nothing happens, no flashing nothing.
    Is it that the test doesnt work on all models?
    Cheers

    The pedal test does exist and I just read a few threads just now in which others with models similar to yours did get codes. Also saw a recent tread in which somebody found that they weren't holding thepedals down firmly enough or something like that.

    In any case if your EML is on and you can't seem to get the codes by the pedal test maybe its worth paying a few quid to have them read and old codes cleared at the same time.

    Cheers, Paul

    Thanks Paul
    The title was a bit tongue in cheek, just wondered if it didnt work on my car.
    Will try again.
