Customer Question
1998 444e engine was...

1998 444e engine was running fine. cannot drive it because of insurance reason. I would start It once or twice a week to keep bats charged. one rainy day I satrted the truck and found that the wipers weren't working. no power to the wiper motor. fuse is good relay good. so I checked behind the fuse box for any problems. there I found numerous wires with parts of them without insulation or holes poked them and not covered back up. I chose not to mess around back there other than to tape up the exposed wires. and I wired another wiper circuit and switch. during all this time I would periodically reconnect the batteries a start the engine and check the lighting because my fear was that I might affect another circuit. I must have because I was with the wires and wiper circuit. the starter would not crank. nothing but relays clicking. but sometimes It would crank but not start. but soon as I would turn of the key and try to crank it again I got noting but clicking relays. traced the cranking problem to a tall yellow 2 second time delay relay under the panel on the passenger side, checked it and found no continuity. replaced with a new one. even checked it for continuity before installing it. it checked out ok. put it in and got nothing but the same thing as before no crank. but sometimes it would crank. but as soon as you turn off the key and try it again it would nothing. so I removed the new relay checked it again and found it had no more continuity. so I ran a fusible link from the start plug inside of the crank relay to the load side plug and it has been cranking fine since but no start. I checked the icp sensor pug and it had oil on it a bad sign I was told. tried to crank it then to see if it would start because of the default feature. That did not work. I removed the icp sensor placed a rag by the hole and cranked the engine and a good amount of oil shot out.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

I did not complete previous message about my wiring wiper no crank and no start problem. 1998 444e. after checking the icp I opened the fuel bowl and it is full of fuel, but I have no fuel pressure at the scheoder valve do I have a problem wjth the ipr or something related.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?
