If you replaced the engine ECU you need to get it linked to the BCM (body control module) with a scan tool.

link ecm to bcm, in tech2 scan tool at holden dealers or a aftermarket workshop that has a scan tool that can do this eg snapon, G-scanner, etc.. ring around to some repair shops

Engine light doesnt come on when key is turned on,cranks but will not start.no fire no fuel


Take to car to a diagnostic center, and they will attach a diagnostic machine to the car to see if it's the onboard-computer that's malfunctioning.

If the fuses are all OK, and the starter cranks the engine, but there's no firing, the diagnostic system will tell the tech what it is, there are various reasons there's no firing when the engine cranks,

Someone may say check the disable switch on the transmission, but if that's broken, the starter will not crank the engine.

Changing computer


I recommend you take your vehicle to a holden dealership and get them to put tech2 on it and check for diagnostic trouble codes.

Possible cause could be a crank angle sensor.

Check Engine light came on and car stalled


Crank Sensor usually have two function,1st the sensor sense the rotation of the flywheel and picks up by the sensor than the sensor send a sigle to your computer telling your computer to send sparks and fuel to to the engine. When sensor goes bad engine quits running, sometime check engine lights come on as computer is not sending no fuel or sparks. Some car has two sensor, one for the fuel and one for sparks. The sensor usually locate next to the flywheels near the main crank. Some are difficult to get to; others are easy. 4cyc on foreign are easy to get to compare to domestic. V6 front wheel drive I find it difficult and V8 rear wheel drive are better. If you plan to keep the car and fix it yourself, the best thing to do is invest and purchase Chilton Repair Manual if planning do it yourself, it will save you lots of money in the future. On 96' breeze should be a breeze to fix, from experience working on Dodge and Chrysler are fairly easy to work on.

Car wont crank 1994 plymouth acclaim


Not sure what yor experiencing . Do you have crank no start or no crank no start? No crank no start is battery and cables issue. Crank no start is ignition , plugs, and fuel.

Engine cranks. sparks but does not start. fuel pressure ok


Have you replaced the crank sensor? The crank sensor on top of the trans. bell housing does control the injector pulse through the ECM.
The sensor is a common problem with the Jeeps. Sometimes the sensor stops working when the engine is hot and will start again when it cools off and sometimes it dies from oil leaking on top of it or it just dies.
