My V6 has been a non-starter for a few days now.

I've just taken a good look at it and it seems there's no signal from the ecu at the injectors. The ecu seems fine though (I got a mechanic with the necessary software round) as we get data back from it.

Where should I look next? The mechanic reckons a duff crankshaft sensor is likely although with 2 seperate crankshafts (V6) does it mean there are 2 sensors?

What do you guys reckon?

This sounds similiar to Tim's problem???

He suspected the crankshaft sensor earth or the sensor itself.

That was a V6 too.

There is only one crankshaft and hence one sensor.
Are you getting confused with camshafts :)

you have the tdc sensor on the crank and an rpm sensor on the camshaft.

If your ignition isn't priming (no fuel pump power, and no spark) then the crank (tdc) sensor is more than likely the problem.

Even if the sensor is giving readings it could still be faulty. Mine gave a 500 ohms reading (manual quotes approx 540 ohms) however when I finally changed the crank sensor everything was fine.

Buy a new bracket for the sensor while you are at it, I broke mine trying to extract the old sensor.

Good luck

Doh, thanks Mike, yep I was confused.

Thanks for the info guys, I'll get a new sensor and bracket on order asap.

I can't remember the exact figures but my readings were way out.
