Will pushing the start button and depessing the brake pedal at the same time on a 2010 Lincoln MKS cause the car not to start.

Asked by Dec 30, 2015 at 04:15 PM about the 2010 Lincoln MKS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have had several instance when the car would not start and I would then also notice that the brake pedal would feel tight. After waiting about an hour I would try to start the car again. The brake pedal would feel looser and the car would then start fine. I am going to try making sure to first press the brake pedal down completely before pressing the start buttom and see if that prevents the problem from occuring.

Yes brake pedal then starter button may make a difference.

Has anyone else experienced the same problem with their Lincoln MKS not starting? So far so good with it continuing to start by pressing and holding the brake pedal down and then hitting the start buttom. Anyone know why on some occassions the timing of hitting the start buttom causes the brake pedal to feel stiffer and the car will not start?

Ford Dealer says problem was not with the brake pedal switch but with a faulty starter motor. Picking it up tonight and will see if that corrects the problem.

I am having the same problem, the brake pedal switch has been replaced -- still have problem. Did the starter motor fix it?
