HELP! car won't Start, Can I DIY with utel ds708 scanner ?

The car will crank but not turn over. Ran a Vag-com and it is unable to connect to ecu. Check the wiring and it look all good to ecu. We are checking relays right now but any one else experience a similar problem to guide to where to check. If I want to DIY, the autel ds708 scanner can be suitable or not ? The car die while in second gear. No shudder or anything just die. I am running the APR software the connect to the ECU is for sure not working because I can't change fuel program or anything. Any thought please let me know. Thanks!

Ran vag .com so its a VW but unsre what year and what model and what country its in ,now even euroepon models had a OBDII before 2005 for VW but it wasnt compulsory till then here ,So i suspect that you have a europeon software or asian software as a american vehicle will have by american law the same software so it can be read for the emisions test unlike in europe where a probe and a anayliser are used .Iam asuming this is a petrol passat or similar like a audi but different problems can occur to different engine and your is no doubt a bigger V6 or something which i wouldnt see very often as diesels are the mainstay here with manual boxes ,now if this is a older vehicle with a ignition module seperate a bosch unit with 7 wires to it then this i would suspect if it starts from cold and runs but under load it fails ,another problem depending on model is the coil pack with built in ignition module bolted to the fire wall these crack with heat and give a similar problem.Right i have thrown my pennysworth in but without age and model i cannot help anymore

SOURCE: Is the replacement of an ECU in a 96 sable straight forward? I just bought a 96 sable for a great price. The only thing is that it needs a new ecu. The stealership wants $800. I currently have a 96 je

1996 is the beginning of odb II when all the manufacturers had to start calling things by the same names, more or less. the ecu became the pcm, powertrain control module. physically installing a new one in your sable is about as easy as you describe. i can give you the step by step. if it really is a new one, you should not have any problems. if you use one from a junkyard it might not go so smooth. i don't know when ford started using vin matching, but it can be nasty. ok, here's the procedure i found:
1.disconnect battery negative cable
2.remove cowl deflector
3.remove engine wiring harness ground cable from the dash panel
4.remove the pcm electrical connector
5.remove the mounting nuts
6.remove the pcm
and then to reinstall
1.install the pcm in the dash panel. tighten the nuts to 71-106 in-lbs
2.install the pcm electrical connector
3.connect the engine harness ground cable
4.connect the negative battery cable
hope that helps

Cranks, but won't start


Could be the crank sensor is bad but If the check engine light does NOT come on when cranking at the times when it won't start, then your ECU is in need of repair. The engine will only start after the check engine light comes on and the ecu is what controls that. It's likely going bad, causing the delayed start problem typical of early 90's jeeps. Repair or replacement services for your jeep ECU are available on ebay.

If the check engine light does NOT come on when cranking, at the times when it won't start, and the relays are clicking and buzzing, then your ECU is in need of repair. The engine will only start after the check engine light comes on and the ecu is what controls that. ECU is likely going bad, causing the delayed start problem typical of early 90's jeeps. Reasonably priced repair or replacement services for your jeep ECU are available on ebay.

First of all you need to access the Engine Control Module (ECM) using suitable diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-COM or similar) connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's memored. DTC = Diagnostic Trouble Code. Then you will bu full informed about the root cause of the problem, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM.

Vw beetle does not start. seems like its some kind of anti theft protection. the car/key icon lights up, it turns over for a second , then off. this is the first time this has happened, but we bought it...


First of all you need to programm all ignition keys using suitable diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-Com) connected to the data link connector of the car.

You have an electronic immobilizer key recognition problem. Now your key chip is not recognized by the transponder antenna fitted on the ignition switch barrel.

  • Everytime when you had a new key you must programm all available ignition car keys before trying to start the engine with this new key !!!

    This warning lamp indicates that the engine is locked by the immobilizer system, and the engine start sequence must be repeat again.

    From year 1995 in Audi-VW (VAG) cars is used engine immobilizer. The VAG group immobilizer system consists of an immobilizer ECU which controls the recognition of keys and the Engine Management ECU system. Immobilizer is activated when the ignition key is removed and, together with the engine control unit, largely prevents unauthorized starting of the engine. The system uses a transmitter and receiver unit in the ignition key (transponder). Whenever an attempt is made to start the engine, it transmits a new code to the car's electronics. The immobilizing is only cancelled and car motor electronic receives permission to start engine if the key sends a right authorization code.

    Use another ignition key that you have, and start the engine.
