Just getting to work this morning accelerating from 40mph my car cut out, I rolled into work but can not get it started??
I have left it for a few hours still nothing. At first the rev counter needle was moving when the car was being cranked over so i started to look at fuel,
took the bench seat up when turning the key i can not hear the fuel pump humming. I have checked all fuses Fuel pump, Engine modules, imoblizer.
I then looked at the fuel relay behind the fuses, The no 3 (fuel relay) & no 6 (horn relay) are the same colour with the same numbers on them, I swaped them over thinking the relay could be gone, Still wont start- Now the rev needle wont move off the bottom of the gauge and the temp needle goes all the way into the red and sits there with the red light on????
When checking the above fuses (no 14 27 29 30 54) i pulled them out to make sure they are all ok,
as the rev needle is not moving have i now got a crank sensor down-that would shut the engine off, but i should still be able to hear the fuel pump??
I do change the fuel filter every 14000 miles its due a new filter in about 3000 miles
If i took the top off the fuel filter and cranked the car over should i get fuel coming out of one of the pipes?
Im not sure what else i can do except send the car to a indi bmw specialist and have them charge loads for diognostics
Please can anyone help,
