Drove my car 25 to 30 miles Sunday afternoon no problem; the engine light had been on for a few days. It's been off and on as of late, sometimes with symptoms sometime not. After my drive, two and a half hours later the car won't start. It turns over strong no fire, codes po1280, 1515 and 1516 taken. Acts like fuel pump or relay not sure.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

  • Although I work here everyday, please understand it is not all day and rarely morning time.
  • To get the most from me and the best experience, please give me the best details you can.
  • The website will offer you a phone call option for more $$. Some I do fulfill and some I do not.
  • Thanks, let's get started.

Have you done any diagnostics for these codes yet?

Have you or do you know how to check fuel pressure, ignition spark, and injector pulse?

Can you do these steps? It is going to bea da throttle body or a bad accelerator pedal.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris
