Hi I have been having trouble starting my car to the stage where an indie has got it & it wont start at all, they say they cant get any error codes & can't access the ecu.
Two weeks ago my mrs. phoned me up at work to say the car wouldn't start. I asked my mate to call round & see if there was anything he could see & when he tried it it started 1st time. Put it down to my mrs. & left it at that. 3 days later, same problem. Engine cranking merrily away but wouldn't fire. Battery eventually starts to drain & it starts throwing all sorts of faults on the i drive like low oil, abs failure etc. on just about the last push of the button before the battery is flat the car fires up, drive perfectly & starts for the remainder of the day. All reported errors disappear. Tried it at 11pm before I go to bed & starts instantly.
Following morning it wont start again..........
Battery is fine, tried a fully charged new one & had same problem. glow plugs fine also.
Fault codes I have seen on my mates scanner were....
486D control unit software fault
46D1 control unit internal 4
46D3 control unit internal 4
4A61 EWS control tampering
Managed to get it going again on the last push of the button & drove it to my local indie & they cant find any fault codes & cant access the ecu.
Any Ideas anyone ??
