no starter motor


Recommended Posts

Car has been stood for 6 days waiting for a set of injecters to arrive and now it wont crank over.

Battery is fully charged and both keys work the doorlocks etc but when you put the key in and try to start it theres no sign of anything from the starter motor. Was fine before it was parked last friday but now no matter what i try no starter motor.

HELP ! ! !

I phoned HA Fox this afternoon and they say its the PATS and needs diagnostics on it or could be the keys have lost thier codes, really ?

Anyway the injecters have been changed and the car was booked to have the mobile diagnostics man back tomorrow to code the injecters to ecu so looks like hes got another job to do while hes here.

How can both keys lose thier codes when they aren't being used ? they still work remote locking and boot lock and car park light.

Injecters were coded in and calibrated on Friday after the PATS issue had been resolved and was told there was a lot of unburnt fuel in the exhaust system which there was and to leave the engine running to clear the unburnt fuel out.


Well i did this, left it running for a while then turned the engine off to refit the engine cover and guess what ?      same PATS issue as before    engine wont turn over and red light in the centre console wont clear. Never touched anything while i fitted the engine cover other than removing Oil filler cap and dipstick but when i went to restart the car PATS has locked out the starter again.


Not had the car three weeks but already i'm losing patience with it. Now got to wait again till Friday as diagnostic bod only does this area on Fridays and cant find anyone else whos capable or prepared to come and have a look.


Looks like i wont be keeping the piece of crap very long !

Mobile diagnostic chappy cam out again yesterday and couldn't clear the pats issue. Looked all through everything and found that the abs module wouldn't communicate with the rest of the system so he reckoned it was the abs module at fault and said to change the abs module.

I sourced a replacement like for like, same part number and from same year and model and have just changed it over and guess what ?

Still the same, pats light still on and wont go off so still wont crank engine over.
