2.0ts will not start - code light!!!

Hi everyone, over the last month i've done head gasket, variator, all belts, thermostat & sender and rad on my 156 2.0ts (2001 Y), it's been stripped and battery disconnected since around Xmas. i've just reconnected battery and tried to start it, but the key-code light and the oil/charge lights are on and it refuses start although it seems to be turning over fine. Is it possible for it to 'lose it's memory' and need to reprogrammed or summin???

Re: 2.0ts will not start - code light!!!

dont worry its an easy fix. search this forum and there is a detailed guise on how to fix it.

basically its the arial around the ignition barrel has probably come loose you need to take the cowling off and follow it back to where it plugs into the ecu just unplug and reconnect it a few times normally sorts it.

make sure all conections are clean
