Question about 1999 Daewoo Lanos

1 Answer

Lanos will not turn over

The car will not turn over, will not jump start and will not start using jump leads.
There seem to be no movement of the starter motor, like the immobiliser is stuck on, but I can't see how to reset it. I've taken the battery lead off in an effort to reset the immobiliser, but no luck.

Any help would be useful.

Thanks Neil

Do you have a clicker for the locks/alarm? try resetting the alarm from there, also disconnecting the battery (i think you said you tried this) temporarily almost always resets anti theft systems.... another thing to try is leave the car alone for at least 15 mins, this allows the short term system to reset itself which might help. when all else fails call the dealer in the morning :) hope this helps

What can cause my temp & fuel gauge to jump around, and sometimes while this happens the engine cuts out , but when the break pedal is touched the problem goes away. How can I fix this


Hello Cobus
You have an Intermittent connection or short somewhere in the wiring. There is lots of wiring harness running around the car.

That can be mighty hard to locate... even for a qualified auto electrician. It's just so time consuming.

You have to narrow down the cause of what is mechanically setting it off. Then you may be close.
Depending on where it's most sensitive to movement
Then you might start to remove panels etc.

It would obviously be cheeper if you do all the ground work.

Have you had any accidents or panels removed or parts replaced or corrosion points? Only you know your car's history

Using the information you have provided so far would help in the diagnosis.
For example
The engine cuts... so it loses power to the Ignition or spark generation circuit. (I don't know your car model specifics)

You can attach a wire to the battery with a fuse or circuit breaker in series (for safety) and use it to supply missing power when the problem presents itself.
A simple 12v test lite with a sharp needle tip can also be used to trace for 12v when power goes missing.

There are specialised probes worth $200-300 dollars that will help but there are cheaper tools also.

Most Importantly....It's the Long Leads which connect to the Battery that make these tools work so well

Tip

Jump-start Jaguar X-type? it's more complicated than you think.


Jump Start of Vehicle Battery


IF THE BATTERY YOU ARE USING TO JUMP-START THE VEHICLE HAS RECENTLY BEEN CHARGED IT MAY STILL BE GASSING, COVER THE VENT PLUGS OR COVERS WITH A DAMP CLOTH TO REDUCE THE RISK OF EXPLOSION SHOULD ARCING OCCUR WHEN CONNECTING THE JUMP LEADS.

Turn off all electrical ancillary circuits such as radio, lights, indicators etc. If the reason for a flat battery is unknown the condition may be as a result of an electrical short circuit, so care must be taken during the Jump-start process and subsequent to connection to ascertain if this is the case. A short circuit or un-isolated ancillary load can cause arcing when the jump leads are connected, a small 'crackle' is normal but any spark or flash is an indication of a problem that should be rectified before attempting to Jump-Start the vehicle.

Jaguar do not recommended that the vehicle is jump started, and If at all possible it is preferable to replace the flat battery with a suitable fully charged unit rather than jump-start the car. However if it is done it should be carried out by suitably qualified personel. Garage services and services like AA and RAC homestart should be used whenever possible.

Obviously there are occasions when carrying out this proceedure yourself is the only practical way proceed.

If there is no option but to jump-start the discharged battery should be removed and recharged immediately after jump starting to avoid permanent damage.

High quality, heavy duty Jump leads must be used as the current consumption during starting is very high, and a voltage loss will be
exhibited though the jump leads, increasing current requirement.

Make sure that the Jump Start battery is of the same voltage as the vehicle, and suitable to provide the required starting current.

MAKE SURE THAT THE ENDS OF THE JUMP LEADS DO NOT TOUCH EACH OTHER OR GROUND AGAINST THE VEHICLE BODY AT ANY TIME WHILE THE LEADS ARE ATTACHED TO THE BATTERY. ARCING AND VERY RAPID DISCHARGE CAN CAUSE THE BATTERY TO EXPLODE.

Connect the jump leads in the following sequence.
Connect Positive Jump Lead to Jump Start battery positive terminal.
Connect Positive Jump Lead to Vehicle battery positive terminal.
Connect Negative Jump Lead to Jump Start battery negative terminal.
Connect Negative Jump Lead to a suitable vehicle ground point at least, 300 mm (12 in) from the battery terminal e.g. engine lifting bracket, do not do not connect directly to the vehicle battery terminal.

Start the vehicle and rev to 2000 rpm, then allow tickover for 5-10 minutes.

Do not attempt continued repeated starting of the vehicle, this will cause heat build up at the terminals and though the jump leads degrading the leads performance and adding to voltage loss.

Allow 3-4 minutes recovery time for the leads and Jump Start battery between attempts to start.

Before disconnecting the jump leads, switch on the heated rear screen, to reduce the alternator voltage peak when the leads are removed, as this can damage electronic equipment.

Disconnect the jump leads in the reverse order to the connecting sequence taking great care not to short the ends of the leads.

Do not rely on the alternator to restore a discharged battery.
Ensure that the battery is recharged or replaced with a fully recharged unit
as soon as possible.

Following Jump-starting of a compleately discharged battery, you may need to carry out a Green ECM drive Cycle, this will allow the powertrain control module to 're-learn' idle values, and most likely need to re-enter your radio code, details of these can be found at. http://www.bluejag.co.uk

Daewoo Lanos 2001 SE starts, runs briefly, misfires & stops


replace your intake air box filter (remember check to see what direction it faces) an arrow (indicating air flow direction) on the air filter should face the engine intake. next check your wide open throttle switch (located in the intake tube) for smooth flap movement or, a broken wire.

2000 Daewoo Lanos 'jumps' when pulling away and in low gears.


Ignition Coil, or Crankshaft sensor going bad. Change your spark plugs and wires then see what happens. Or could be your injectors are clogged. Try some pour in the tank Fuel Injector Cleaner like STP. Any little debris can mess them up.

2000 Daewoo Lanos intermittant misfire trouble code


check fuel filter and check fuel for water or contaminents
then check fuel pressure with gauge also while driving
may have pin hole in leads - spray water with salt solution over HT leads while engine running and then rev to see or here spark jump(missfire)
recheck spark plugs - did you crack any on installation/removal/installation?
what are the codes and description if stored?
what is engine live data parameters like do they look normal (right specs for range/operation)?

Trying to jump start but will not start, it took a jump one time


hmm I'll need some more information to be of more help, for example is it tumbling but not starting, is it a powerful tumble>>??

Any way here is how to check the fuel pump,,

1.) locate the gas filter by the engine, there is a hose leading to it and one from it to the engine.

2.) remove the hose leading to it and stick it in a bottle.

3.) turn the ignition on, if the pump is working gas should flow into the bottle.

4.) replace the hose to the filer

5.) remove the hose from the filer to the engine and place that in a bottle.

6.) turn the ignition on and see if gas flows. if it does the filter is fine.

NB.. Check the gas in the bottle for signs of water this will cause a problem.

Not starting after replacing plugs and leads ??? help


What do you mean by 'turn over?' Is the starter not working or do you mean it isn't firing? 'Turning over' normally means that the starter is functional even though the engine doesn't start.
