Won't Start!

I'm having an intermittent problem with my 156 1.8TS, sometime it won't start, doesn't matter if it's hot or cold. Turn on the ignition, turn it over but it won't start, the injector light comes on in dash, but I can't find anything in owners manual except for when it mentions key code light stays on, but with my problem this symbol seems to stay out!

I've had the car for 3 mth and still trying to find my way around it.

Would appreciate any info, Cheers!

Re: Won't Start!

That sounds exactly the same symptoms as I got on my 145 Cloverleaf when the crank sensor failed. It could be a pig to start on occasion, but once running it was ok.

You can measure the resistance of it and checking the readings towards the manual. It should read around 1000 ohms, any more and it is knackered.

The connector for it is on the top right of the engine, attached to the intake manifold and is brown.

Its not too hard to change, though you ned to remove the MAF and throttle body for access. I think a new one cost about 25 from shop4parts.

Hope that helps.


You will never be cool driving a Vauxhall.
