E200 wont start

My E 200 cranks but has been unable to start. A diagnosis has revealed that electrical current does not reach the nozzles, and the 'start enable' is a no and flywheel sensor is faulty. After changing the flywheel sensor, the car still wont start. How can I resolve this problem?

If as you say you have a pulse at the ecu and nothing at the nozzles then therse a break in that circuit either purposely (anti theft etc)or accidently.You will have to back probe to find which of the wires has been affected.Usualy only two wires.A continuity test with noise will tell you which of the two has the break.It then becomes a case of tracing that wire back to its source and identifying what is stopping the flow of current.Idont have a diagram for your vehicle so cant help in that respect.An earth wire may have been left off during replacement of the crank angle sensor.Even something as simple as a plug with a poor connection could be the cause.good luck and sorry i cant be more specific.

My98 Cadillac catera had running and starting problems I change crankshaft sensor and now it won't crank

Check for the following conditions:
• Poor connections/terminal tension at the CKP sensor harness connector or at the ECM harness connector. Refer to Electrical Diagnosis in Engine Electrical, and Troubleshooting Procedures for the proper procedure. Also, refer to Checking Terminal Contact in Engine Control Module Diagnosis .
• A loose CKP sensor.
• A Misrouted harness. Inspect the harness in order to ensure that the harness is not routed too close to any high voltage wires such as spark plug leads, or too close to any high current devices such as the alternator, the motors, the solenoids, etc.
• Check the sensor for a proper installation. A sensor that is not fully seated could cause an excessive air gap between the sensor and the reluctor wheel.
• The CKP sensor contacting the reluctor wheel.
• A loose or damaged crankshaft reluctor wheel.

On any of todays vehicles

Automobiles of today are highly advanced pieces of machinery the first step in any automotive diagnosis is to connect a scan tool to check if any faults have been logged.

Scan tools are needed to perform basic settings on motors , modules and test various electrical components .

The second step is too see if the factory has released any technical bulletins , a bulletin can quickly alert a person to a fix before a diagnosis is started .
( you may be able to do this by searching on line )

If there are no bulletins found then a thorough diagnosis must be started .

A test drive can reveal the condition of the car while it is being driven and help the diagnosis.

If all else fails then the vehicle will need to be taken to a reputible technician.
Preerably one who has experience with your make and model.

VEHICLE CRANK, DOES NOT START Change fuel pump, crank and cam sensor, unable to get orb code

Does yours have a theft deterrent system ? SECURITY light on dash ! Before replacing parts you suppose to test for spark at a spark plug wire . check for fuel pressure . You really should take this to someone who knows what he is doing . You already spent more then it would have cost at the dealer !
The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table is an organized approach to identifying a condition that causes an engine not to start. The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table directs the service technician to the appropriate system diagnosis. In order for the engine to start and run, the correct amount of good quality fuel must be properly delivered to each cylinder. The timing of the valve train operation in relation to piston position is also critical, as is mechanical compression of the air/fuel mixture.
The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table assumes the following:
The battery is completely charged. Refer to Battery Inspection/Test in Engine Electrical.

The engine cranking speed is acceptable. Refer to Engine Cranks Slowly in Engine Electrical.

There is adequate fuel in the fuel tank.

When you turn the key to the on position does the check engine light come on an go off after a few seconds ? Did you check EFI relay in the under hood fuse / relay box . Why are you unable to check for OBD 2 codes ? Don't you have a code reader ?

What can keep causing my battery to be dead

The charging system is not working. Common suspects include:
Loose wires or connections
Blown fusible links
Bad alternator

Also, if the charging system is working, and the battery lives as long as you drive it regularly, you may have a phantom power draw that is draining your battery while it is parked. You may have some accessory plugged in, such as a gps or a cell phone charger or alarm that is causing the current draw. If not, some part of your car may be drawing current when it shouldn't.

A proper electrical diagnosis is needed to reveal the source of your symptom. In the meantime, you can rig a cheap trickle charger to the car while it is not being driven while you find someone who can diagnose electrical systems. This may or may not end up being a costly repair, depending on what the tech finds during the diagnosis. 25354831-u40lsvyytnuesyuv3fbafhtd-5-0.jpg

After steering column replacement 1992 Lincoln towncar cranked and started when boosted. after booster it will not start. Why will it not start again?

I would make sure that the battery and starter motor electrical connections are clean and sound to ensure enough available current is reaching the starter. It sounds like something is limiting the current which when boosted will be more.

Maybe the starter motor is starting to fail and needs more power to spin it?

My 1kz prado is not starting opened the injector nozzle no fuel comes when engine is cranked. Had a diagnosis fault fuel control sensor relay changed it but still no fuel come on the nozzle. Please advise...

When you switch the ignition on, you should hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds, then stop. What the system is now waiting for is the crank angle sensor input, to tell it to run the pump again. If you have a crank angle sensor problem (or immobiliser problem) the pump will not switch on again, so no fuel pressure. You need to establish if the pump runs and builds fuel pressure when you crank. Pump runs, but no pressure? No fuel getting into pump, out of fuel, or strainer blocked up, pump unit worn out.

Cranks but wont start

If it cranks but won't start, check that the Crankshaft Position Sensor is getting current or that it is functioning correctly, by maybe replacing it.

Also, check the fuel delivery by spraying some starting fluid into the intake and turning it over. If it starts for a few seconds, you know the fuel delivery or injectors is the problem. If it doesn't start, then it's likeley an ignition system problem (spark problem).

Good luck on the diagnosis.
