ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX is the hose to the throttle body,
it just seems odd because sometimes you turn the ignition on and it will start and sometimes the pump wont run and it wont start
could it be the relay for the fuel pump or any fuses etc ???
if it is the relays where are they located ?
ok i will have to get it and let you know, the code is deffinatly AUM it is stamped on the top of the engine.
Hi, i have just had another look at my car and the vin number is XXXXX
I havde taken the spark plugs out one by one and turned it over and none of them have a spark.
I have also hard wired the fuel pump from the battery and the fuel pump runs fine, taken a fuel pipe off the engine and the fuel is coming straight out as soon as you connect the pump to the battery.
I have found somebody with a obd reader so i will borrow it tomorrow hopefully and give you the fault codes.
ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX not post till at least tomorron night as ill be at work till late anyway .
Hi, i have plugged an OBD reader into the car and it cannot connect to the vehicle, i plugged it into my focus and it connected straight away.
So cant give you the fault codes, could it be anything else eg knock sensor or any main relays ?
sort of, could it be the knock sensor though, or a relay ?
when i turned the ignition on once or twice that light flickered on and off and you could hear a relay clicking like mad (thinking about it i think it said efc)
but if you switch the ignition on now it just comes on and nothing comes up, sorry for being such a pain lol just really getting stressed with it now.
hi, i have replaced the crank sensor today, and it has not made a difference, then i left it for a bit and tried it again and it started and stayed running for sbout a minuts then just died again, any ideas.
could it be a relay for anything or not ?
ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX have to get an auto electrician around now then.
