Scenic wont start - In gear

Hello all,

I broke down today on the A34 and a very clever man from the AA got me going again - Thought I'd share what happened in case anyone else has the same issue.

- Driving along without any problems and decided to pull over to stretch my legs.

- Car wouldnt start again. Display on the dashboard said "Select neutral" regardless of gearleaver position.

- Fault traced to a broken wire coming out of the plug on the clutch pedal switch.

-Solution was to touch the two wires together to start the car - but disconnect when it was running as the handbrake doesnt work.
