My Mercedes a160 problems. After or during rain with the water on the road the car will have an engine shutter and slows right down and then cuts out,


This sounds electrical in nature.have you inspected underneath and inside engine bay for trailing or bare or cracked cables.water is ingressing onto part of the electric system.could be anything from the ignition such as ht leads ....cooling such as electric fan.... Alternator....battery.check every where for loose ...frayed or bare wiring.you may have lost a splash tray that was removed during servicing or water may even be finding its way through front grill straight onto part of ignition system.lastly the ecu will record most events and log them as error codes which can be read at a local garage and reveal what may really be going on.unfortunaely some garages charge a fee whereas you might find a local one who will not.

Why would a main fuse blow on my 2009 yamaha fx cruise 1800 motor


Bad starter solenoid. // Bad ignition switch. // Battery cable (''Positive'' cable) rubbing into ''ground'' somewhere. Check entire length of cable for chaffing, cuts, etc... // Wiring from an old installation, such as an old alarm or radio, left hanging loose and shorting out when touching ''ground''. // Water getting into fuse box // Shorted (i.e. ''defective'') battery. /////// In closing, if this happened only once, then don't worry about it. If it happens frequently, then check and recheck all the above. If you cannot find a problem, then take it to the DEALER, not a local mechanic. The Dealer will have the complete electrical schematic and will be able to find the problem in much less time than a local mechanic. There might even be a ''service notice'' on file with the dealer about your model vehicle having such a problem. (Note: A ''service notice'' is not a ''recall''. It is just an ''advisory notice'' sent to dealer mechanics so that they are aware of the problem, and know how to diagnose and repair it as quickly and inexpensively as possible).

Can't start car do to late on payment


Make your payment!

The rest of this answer is purely hypothetical and is in no way to be construed as a way to bypass the device, nor should it be attempted. Just thinking out loud:

Once your payment has been made and you get your car running again, I guess you could make a Faraday cage by wrapping the box and it's antenna in aluminum foil and grounding out the foil to the car's chassis. That way, it can't be shut off if you are running a little late on making that payment.

Barring that, there has to be a relay in it that cuts power to the engine. If I were playing around, I'd trace out the two wires that go into the box from the engine's start circuit and splice them together.

Again, purely hypothetically speaking...

Why will my car start and then go dead

Hi,

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave', for today.

As you evaluate my advice and suggestions, there are a few things you must keep in mind:

• I did not diagnose your problem and am therefore only able to evaluate what you tell me. For example, if you ask me a fuse location, that doesn't mean that I can tell you the reason why the fuse blew.
• A thorough diagnostic approach involves the use of technical equipment, such as voltage meters. scanning equipment and other sophisticated devices.
• Lastly, fixing one problem can very easily reveal a problem with something that you might consider unrelated. However, you must keep in mind that I can only evaluate and suggest based on the information that you provide.

First Step:

Do a Thorough Visual Inspection

Do a thorough visual and "hands-on" underhood inspection before starting any diagnostic procedure! You can find the cause of many problems by just looking, thereby saving yourself a lot of time.
• Has the vehicle been serviced
recently? Sometimes things get
reconnected in the wrong place, or
not at all.
• Don't take shortcuts. Inspect hoses
and wiring which may be difficult to
see due to location.
• Inspect the air cleaner and
ductwork for defects.
• Check sensors and actuators for
damage.
• Inspect the illumination system wires for:
- Damaged terminals.
- Split or cracked connectors
- Splits, cuts or breaks in the inline fuses, circuit brreaker
wires and insulation.
• Inspect all electrical leads for:
- Correct wiring routing. Refer to vehicle
service manual.
- Pinches and kinks.
- Splits, cuts or breaks.
• Inspect wiring for:
- Contact with sharp edges.
- Contact with hot surfaces, such as
exhaust manifolds.
- Pinched, burned or chafed insulation.
- Proper routing and connections.
• Check electrical connectors for:
- Corrosion on pins.
- Bent or damaged pins.
- Contacts not properly seated in
housing.
- Bad wire crimps to terminals

Step Two:


Instructions:

Check the entire fuel delivery system.

  1. Relieve system pressure. Disconnect the negative battery cable and loosen the gas cap to let pressure drain from the system. Attach a dual tube pressure gauge to the test port and drain fuel into an approved container.
  2. Disconnect the fuel pressure sensor vacuum hose. Check for fuel in the line. If there is fuel present in the line, the fuel delivery problem is likely caused by a faulty fuel pump pressure regulator. If there is no fuel in the line, reattach the vacuum hose and continue with the fuel delivery diagnostic.
  3. Twist off the fuel pressure test port cap and attach a pressure gauge to the fuel pressure valve if one is not already connected. Reconnect the negative battery cable and turn the key to the first position. Do not start the engine.
  4. Check the pressure gauge. It needs to register between 45 and 48 psi. Start the engine and let it idle. Check the gauge again. It needs to register approximately 46 psi. Leave the engine on and remove the vacuum hose. Check the gauge one last time. It needs to register approximately 50 psi. Pressure that's too high indicates a malfunctioning pressure regulator. Low pressure indicates a clogged fuel filter or a broken fuel pump that needs to be replaced.
  5. Cut the engine off, relieve system pressure again and remove the negative battery cable.
  6. Clean the fuel filter inlet with compressed air to remove any dirt that might come loose and contaminate the fuel supply as you remove the fuel filter. Pull the filter out at the male filter fitting and disconnect the remaining connections to the filter. Remove the filter.
  7. Examine the filter for clogs and replace it if necessary. If there are no clogs, the fuel delivery problem is probably caused by a breakdown in the fuel pump itself.

DO NOT RUN OUT AND BUY ANYTHING YET! This was only the opening act.

Discussion: Late model vehicles are highly computer controlled to reduce emissions, maximize fuel economy and improve consumer comfort. The various control systems in vehicles are interrelated and controlled by multiple computers,sensors, relays, and circuit breakers that constantly monitor vehicle performance through a myriad of sensors located throughout the vehicle. Based on information received, the computers adjust the vehicle performance through a series of valves, switches and motors. You must use a scanner to unlock the information stored in your car's computer. Your Malibu is OBD II compliant.

A Scan Tool can be used to read and erase trouble codes, display, record and play back LIVE diagnostic data and perform other tests allowed by the vehicle maker. Scan tools that cover vehicles 1982 to present are available at your local auto supply dealer.

You don't indicate any diagnostic tests to date. A dealer or your local mechanic will charge $100-$200 to perform a diagnostic scan. However, AutoZone will provide a thorough scan for FREE or even loan you one. Anyone who tells you that a modern vehicle can be diagnosed without a scanner with the problems you have set forth is merely guessing. You car has a computer and memory and probably knows exactly what the problem is. That on-board computer is just waiting for you to ask, "What's wrong". All of the suggestions that I can ;make would of necessity be based on the scanner readings

I repeat: Irrespective of what anyone tells you, there is but one way of diagnosing your problem. If I were to make a suggestion, it would be -- at best --. a mere guess. A diagnostic scan retrieves any information related to the malfunctioning parts and tells you precisely what is wrong. Perform the scan diagnostic now.


All the best,

Ben

Hyundai Tucson - engine loses power whilst driving, it does not cut out completely. Sometimes also struggling at idle


The drivability issue you describe has a multitude of possible causes. The best advice I can give you is that you take/tow the vehicle to the local/nearest Hyundai Service Department and have it properly diagnosed. Possible causes:
#1. Fuel delivery (Fuel Pump pressure, Injector(s) clogged/leaking)
#2. Vacuum Leak(s)
#3. Faulty Throttle Position Sensor (TPS)
#4. Electrical (Wiring)
#5. Faulty Sensors (Crank Position Sensor, Cam Position Sensor, Idle Speed Control Actuator, Faulty Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor, etc.)
#6. Contaminated Fuel
#7. Faulty Powertrain Control Module (PCM)
Best advice, get is properly diagnosed.

Not getting fire over the #1 spark plug coil. What needs to be changed/what is the cause of the problem? The engine stopped running while in motion. Battery light came on first then all the other warning...


  1. Check fuel level in fuel tank, add fuel if empty.
  2. Check battery condition and state of charge. If voltage and load test below specification, charge or replace battery.
  3. Check battery terminal and cable condition and tightness. Clean terminals and replace damaged, worn or corroded cables.
  4. Check fuel delivery system. If fuel is not reaching the fuel injectors, check for a loose electrical connector or defective fuse, relay or fuel pump and replace as necessary.
  5. Engine may have excessive wear or mechanical damage such as low cylinder cranking pressure, a broken camshaft drive system, insufficient valve clearance or bent valves.
  6. Check for fuel contamination such as water in the fuel. During winter months, the water may freeze and cause a fuel restriction. Adding a fuel additive may help, however the fuel system may require draining and purging with fresh fuel.
  7. Check for ignition system failure. Check for loose or shorted wires or damaged ignition system components. Check the spark plugs for excessive wear or incorrect electrode gap. If the problem is worse in wet weather, check for shorts between the spark plugs and the ignition coils.
  8. Check the engine management system for a failed sensor or control module.

Couple of months ago would cut out when but start immediately


hallo
I dont belive it is air that is cousing your problem. Think it is more an electrical isue. I have had some problems with relay module (engine bay, near engine computer). And check fuel lift pump.
hope it helps
