I have a 2002 transit connect I have replaced the injectors

Customer Question

I have a 2002 transit connect
I have replaced the injectors and pump with second hand ones.
I havep programmed thei injectors and have fuel at the replacement pump but it will not run.
I have fault code P1664 - Injection pump control malfunction - come up on my solus.
Does the pump need to be programmed?
Could it be the PCM as the battery was flat?

It's definitely a tdciThe injectors were changed as the vehicle kept coming up with a fault code relating to faulty injectors.
Once changed the pump wasn't working so that has also been changed.

Has the fuel system been primed

Or just cranked over to try and start it

The fuel system has been primed
Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 6 months ago.

Was this gone using a one way hand primer

And force feeding the pump

Do you know what the fuel pressure is on crank

As its rare for tdci pumps to fail

done with one way primer, don't know what the fuel pressure is on crank, fuel coming out of injectors if slackened off.I thought it was common for the internals of the pumps to fail and block the injector?

Hi thanks and sorry for the delay

Ok if the pump fails (break up ) it can cause contamination and failure of the Injectors

If this has been the case metal swarf would be eveident in the fuel return

Also if there is metals swarf caused by pump failure the full system should be cleaned out as all they happens is the injectors become contaminated again due to the swarf in the system

Does it fire if you try a small squirt of easy start or brake cleaner as these can be a pain to start after the injectors are removed

I have previously had to tow start A few over the years

It runs on easy start.I have just checked and it is not remembering the injector codes.I can program them in but it forgets the codes straight away
