Okay I finally found a replacement engine for my 2.0L 147 Selespeed, it has arrived packaged in a low mileage 147 Selespeed, with what was described as a faulty Actuator. The condition is not too bad, so I am half tempted to move the actuator, rather than swap the engine, so get the new car working with parts from the old car, rather than take the engine out the new car.
I figured I'd do some diagnostics on the new car, rather than just assume that what I'm been told is correct. First off the pump doesn't run when you open the door.
So I then checked the pressure via MultiEcuScan. It reading about 45-50 bar which I believe is correct.
So then I checked for errors and got "P1769 Pump Driving Relay Stuck". Cleared the error, and started the engine, sure enough it came back in a few seconds, and the Selespeed error came up on the dash.
So then I Swapped the relay. No difference.
So then I pulled the relay, and jumped the contacts. The pump runs, but there is a sort of buzzing from the acutator (supports the original disagnosis?? )
The thing that get's me is, that if the actuator is knackered, the system is holding pressure far better than my other one ever did, not once has the pump started without me forcing it. And I would expect actuator related errors not pump related errors.
Does anybody want to offer an opinion before I decide on the best way to mate these two cars into one.
