Re: Urgent help required! 147 Won't start!
Well boys, we have some progress!!!!!
I decided im not gonna sit here on my back side and wait to take her in on monday, so I went and tried a few other things, and SHE STARTED!
What was needed to get her started was unplugging the selespeed system. This turns her on but, obviously, I can not select any gears hence she wont go anywhere.
Plug the selespeed back in and she wont start. The computer (display) says the car is in R, when really its in N and is able to roll freely, leading me to believe that the selespeed is definitely at fault as the car wont start if it thinks its in gear..
Right now I have disconnected the battery and left the selespeed unplugged, hoping it will start up after a ECU reset. I'm planning on leaving her disconnected for a couple of hours.
I will let you know what happens when I go back, fingers crossed she starts.
Went back and plugged it all in, no luck. When I unplug the selespeed (small plug with 3 wires, red, white & brown) the car starts (with selespeed failure ofcourse) and I can engage Reverse and move the car back. When I try to engage 1st i hear 3 clicks like its trying to go in but it isnt?..
Urgently awaiting your response.
