Spider not starting
I did a stupid thing. I lent my daughter my 1998 GTV spider.
A couple of weeks ago the car cut out when she was driving and the RAC guy diagnosed a crank sensor problem. The car would turn over but not run. Local mech (good guy) fitted the sensor and all seemed OK. He also said that the ECU relay was corroded so he fitted a new one.
Last week she was driving it again (I know, I know) and the car electrics completely died. I towed it home and the battery was DEAD flat. Recharged the battery and did an ECU reset.
Now the car turns over but will not fire. Strange thing is that the code light did not come on at all at first so I thought a fuse problem. This morning I looked again and the code light comes on when the engine turns over (not immediately when turning the ignition on). It goes off again after a couple of seconds of cranking. The engine tried to fire a couple of times but still will not start.
