Hi All, My car (07 612) decided to develop a fault while it was parked with the battery disconnected although regularly charged. The car reports the bonnet's open hence the F1 refusing to go in a gear. Strangely, when the engine is off the message doesn't appear and the pump and actuator run perfectly well and I can go in and out of gears. Its the moment the engine is started and the problem starts. I removed the bonnet latch cover and took a look, all seemed fine. Got a mate to hold the microswitch closed and the message still appeared (as in bonnet open). Could this issue have anything to do with a brake pedal switch as I do see a fault appearing on the fault memory related to the brake pedal switch. I also shorted the 2 pins on the female connector of the bonnet switch and still no luck. Does the switch end at the body computer/fuse box or goes to the TCU? Any help would be much appreciated. Please let me know if a brake light switch could flummox the F1 system as such. Cheers a lot.
