Question about Cars & Trucks
I've got a 1.9TDI diesel Alhambra which was starting and driving lovely until just over a week ago, we discovered a leak which we promptly fixed and since then it won't start. We've replaced relay 109 and the battery but still won't fire up. When you put the key in the ignition and turn it there are 5 beeps. Any ideas, I don't have the key with the chip
When you said you do not have the key with the chip,you mean that the car is immobilizer equipped? If it is surely you need the chip fitted key to start and run,otherwise you will not manage to start and surely you will cause loss of programming. Ask from an expert to help you and do not please try it on your own .
Another question I have is : when you said you had a leak and promptly fixed it,what leak you mean? Is it Diesel leak? If it is diesel leak, you must bleed the system first as air goes into the system and do not allow the clean fuel to without air bubbles to get into the injectors.

I am leaning to timing belt problem if the belt broke and the valve is closed on that cly you would have compression there. If the ecm was the cause you would not have spark.

Testimonial: "That makes more sense then I've got! Thank You. "
SOURCE: My car was running, then
You need to have the cam angle and crankshaft position sensors checked. These are 2 parts which enable the ignition system to fire. If these are ok then check that the rotor in the distributor is turning when you crank the engine.
If it is not turning then you have a cambelt/chain or gear problem which you will need to repair before it will start again.
Hope this helped.

Replace the ignition switch that screws onto the back of the lock cylinder, they were a very common problem and actually subject to a recall. You could phone a nearby honda dealership with your VIN number and they may replace it for free.

Welcome to Fixya
Common problem for this are battery problem or loose battery terminal connection. Check also the connection of the battery going to the starter or the starter solenoid is stucked. If all connections are ok. Check to see if its the starter. Get a hammer or equivilent and find the starter. Hit it firmly a couple of times, not a full on swing just a nice strong tap. Try to hit harder if it doesn't work on the 1st try. Just don't break anything. If the car start after doing this, then its DEFINITELY your starter... the solenoid is stuck.
Thank you for using Fixya!
