Hi,

sometimes the fuel injection light stays on and car wont start. I think it is one of the 4 relays at the battery. the manual dose'nt say which one so after i fiddle with all four, the car starts. anybody any idea which relay is specific to the fuel injection system. I can always hear the fuel pump priming so the pump relay is good. once started the car will go for weeks at a time afterwards.
thanks

May be helpful to know whiich car variant - 8v or 16v

16v, relays by battery, think the main relay is to the engine side of battery, the front one of the two.

It's kind of academic. The problem sounds like a dodgy connector, so rather than trying to track down which relay is which, take the relays out one at a time and have a lool at the connector spades and blades... clean them all up.

Also check the wires into the connectors going into the connector spades (in the block). They can corrode over time and go green, or fray a bit, so you're losing the "connected" experience.. An auto electrician will be able to re-wire the connectors and make you up a new connector block if yours are way manky..

If its a 16V and could be the temp sensor. A lot of 155s go through this when its hot. Its located next to the maf. Unplug and it'll start then re plug in
