Starting problem (1.9 jtdm)
It is a sad day as I suppose to drive for Christmas tomorrow. Everything was OK till today's morning, as I started a car as usual and it worked fine for 5min. Suddenly the engine was stopped automatically with symptoms as the ignition key taken out of the slot. Strangely when I took the key off and put it back to the slot, the car started automatically (no start/stop button pressed). It ran for 5 seconds and shut down. I connected a laptop and no errors stored in ECU.
Next step, I removed the negative lead from the battery for a while and connected back. The same starting symptoms: key in the slot, a relay clicks, the engine starts, engine shut down in 5 seconds, no errors in ECU.
Does anyone any idea what can cause this strange behaviour?
I reconnected a battery after a few hour and symptoms are still the same ... the engine is shut down in 5 seconds after start. It does not matter if the clutch or/and brake pedal is pressed.
