My 360 arrived! Now I need help...

Greetings all,

My 360 arrived last Sunday. (Grigio Alloy with black interior) Drove the car last Sunday and Monday but today when I got in to go for a drive, no start. The alarm light goes off, the "Check OK" comes up, gear display shows "1" but when I go to engage the starter, nothing. The gear box also does not respond to my request for neutral.

Could the battery be just low enough to cause problems? Any sage advice would be most appreciated.

Thanks,

Jeff

Cheers Barry!

Barry,

Thanks for the advice. Apparently, it is not sufficient to simply be "pressing on the brake". The owners manual should read "... mash the living crap out of the brake or the car won't know you're there." That's all it took.

Cheers,

Jeff

Welcome Jeff to FL and congrats with your new car.

In the thread Barry mentioned, itís the last comment which is the most pertinent : Pressing hard on the brake pedal will usually resolve this problem.

I would try this first. Press your brake really hard and pull simultaneously both F1 handles.

Let us know how it goes

Glad to hear you got it resolved. Now make sure you apply similar force to the accelerator when driving....

Jeff- Amazing how those little things will bite you. On level ground at stoplights with manual transmission cars, I have the habit (good or bad), of sitting in neutral with my feet off the brake pedal and clutch pedal. First time I did that in my 575M, the car would not go into 1st when I hit the upshift paddle. Same thing as you discovered, nothing happens without the brake pedal being firmly depressed.

You should check the alignment of the micro switches on the brake pedal.
