Hi guys, i was playing pc2 yestetday when all of a sudden the brakes engaged without me pressing the pedal. I recalibrated the pedals but issue persists. Tried pc1 and all is fine. Any advice much appreciated

I had the same problem a while back. It was dirt in the actuators (? - whatever they are called). The solution was to take apart the pedals (I know, daunting) and spray some WD40 into the place where the electronic gizmo thingy is. There are a couple of videos on YouTube. Fixed the problem immediately. It's happened to me twice. Same fix, same happy result. There are lots of screws on the G29 - which I have, but otherwise it is a pretty easy job if you follow the YouTube video, anyway. One time I had to take apart the whole mechanism and clean the electronic whatevers (as you can see, I'm not very technical). The other time, I just sprayed in WD40. There seemed to be a debate about whether to use WD40 or something else. It worked for me and I've had at least a year of use since the last time I had to do it.

Electrical cleaning fluid is probably better. Like wd40 but doesn't leave a residue (ethanol-based I think).

I have the same problem with my brake pedal, I used a product called Air Duster, basically compressed air in a can but its for use on computer equipment ethanol based like hkraft300 mentions, also started using his ffb settings the other week and my wheel feel a lot better for it, thanks hkraft300 for sharing them

Have a look at the HUD with the Speedo on. The red lines around the dial show the pedal input, if either are filickering you need to clean those pots. I found I had to do mine every six months roughly.

I haven't cleaned mine in >1year!
I vac around the rig often though.

No cat I bet, it was mostly cat fur that bunged mine up.
My fanatec pedals are much more fluff resistant, no pots, hall effect sensors.

No cat.
We get dust though. Concrete supply place up the hill and lots of recent roadworks. Horrible to keep cars clean and my dumbarse has gone bought 2 black cars hadn't I :rolleyes:
