    well to update my situation, I have discovered that it is not fuel it is oil, about a quart worth and just so happens i was about a quart low on the stick.. this truck hasnt had any leaks before. so it almost had to happen when i shut it off, I had a real dirty ICP so I changed it , still no start, My hpop is full , my glowplug solenoid checks out good, It does seem to be a little wet under the Y pipe on the turbo. I have tack movement and oil pressure when cranking and small amount of white smoke out of exhaust

    If this is a diesel then the white smoke is insufficient fuel from the injectors. Check for air in the system from the pump to the injectors. Crack each injector nut and crand until there are fuel droplets under the nut . tighten the nuts when this happens and it should start. If that is the case then check the fuel lines, fuel filter and tank for problems ( vacuum in the tank for a blocked tank vent.)

The fuel puddle has to be fixed to stop a fire occurring . It may be related as there may be a pressure loss that is getting a vapour lock happening.

    to find a fuel leak dust the area with talcum powder( baby powder) and you wiil find the wet spot.

Check fuel pressure at the injector rail. If good, suspect crankshaft position sensor--when it fails to start, check for sparks by pulling an ignition wire off the coils and holding it close to the coil with an insulated tool while someone cranks the engine. If no sparks, replace the sensor.

Hi, there will be diodes in the generator that are letting the power from the battery drain away through the parked times when not in use. to prove it charge the battery- then disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, connect 24 hours later and see if the battery as kept it charge, if so - fit new alternator, good luck.

We just got back from a five hour trip, shut the car off and cooling fan stayed on for about five minutes. I restarted the car, and it went from 200-1500 rpms slowly, shut it off and fan stayed on again....


I have a 2001 S60 and the thermo fans come on after nearly every trip for at least 5 minutes, I would check your coolant levels and certainly change the thermostat if the problem persists.

Yah code 1684, it just tells you that battery/computer has been disconnected within last 50 starts. If it doesn't drive you nuts, give it some time, you'll be suprised how quick 50 starts will go by & light should go out
