Hi there,

Does the engine crank at all when you try and start it?


Customer: replied 2 years ago.
it does. I also have a code 2F44 EWS manipulation protection and I suspect disconnected wiring could be the culprit. Its two small connectors hanging underneath the dash disconnected. Can I send you a pic of them and maybe thats my problem?

Are you still helping me?
Expert:  JayPutelis replied 2 years ago.

Yes. Can you attach a pic of the connector please?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
As I was waiting on your response I found where those connectors go. They are for the speaker and light in the plastic panel just below the steering wheel. I also checked and I have no spark or fuel. Crankshaft position sensor seems to be working because during cranking the rpm's move. I also suspect that the code 2F44 is from constant cranking.

Also I noticed that the module or whatever its called that mounts on the positive terminal of the battery was melted and I replaced it. Wondering if it caused any damage to the computer since it goes to the front of the car and distributes power to the computer. See attached photos

Can the verdict read out all the body control modules as well? If so, are there any other faults in the vehicle such as the jbe or frm?
