    Question pedal test

    I have tried to do the pedal test (brake and accelerator, turn key to 2) and nothing happened. I have been trying for half hour with no luck.
    Its a 2000 (w) 1.6 16v sxi.
    This morning it wouldn't start. I jumped in turned key, i ran for about 2secs and stopped, when i tried to restart, you could hear the starter motor turn but no firing, After about 3mins of near constan turning over se finally fired with a cloud of smoke, the eml stayed on for little while before going out.
    Ran fine to work and started again 9 hours latter with no problems.
    The only thing i did yesterday was wash it, but 30mins later it was freezing.

    I'm not so sure you are able to do the pedal test on your car. I'm thinking the 'paper clip' test is what you will be wanting to do. Search on here or google for it
