Ssangyong rexton engine problems

I bought a ssangyong rexton about a month ago everything going well until somedays when i turned the key the just made a noise and did'nt start after a couple of gos the car would start.

My wife went shopping today she came back to the car and the car would not start.So the car was towed away to a garage.The starter motor was removed and tested and works fine.

So with the starter motor being ok we look futher under the bonnet and where the starter motor sits and the cog that the starter motor turns to start the engine the teeth on the cog are worn down the vechicle has only done 35000 miles and ran out of warranty in may 2009.

First has this happened to anyone else and if so how much did this cost to fix?
And does anyone have any advice what to do
This is a mercedes engine

Was told from the dealer that it would take around 8 to 12 weeks as there was a back log of parts coming from korea,So went to mercedes to order the part and they said that they were nothing to do with ssyangyong. so went to my local breakers yard and got a starter ring gear from a old mercedes 2.0ltr petrol auto engine and with a small amount of modifacation and three clamps and a eletric drill gun, lay the sourced ring gear on top of your old ring gear match up the large blank spaces,just make sure you sit the ring gear the right way round i.e the way it came off the car as you will see the mating hole dont totaly line up and one is out using your starter ring gear as a template drill out the hole that is out refit the replace ment ring gear to your car rebuild the box.
have done this three times to diffrent rexons now,and to date the cars have had no problems and run great . Ok not the shortes posts but it did not take 8 to 12 weeks to read or write.
part from the breakers yard £15, to drill the part 10 mins , to strip and rebuild the car including going to the yard one 10hrs total cost well thats up to who does the job for you but it not that hard a job to do.

My rexton 2005 sometimes won't start. but if u lock it up and go bk which could be between 10 mins and 3 hrs.it starts up without a problem and it's random on it times. any idea please


Does it not turn over or it turns over but wont start?
If it will not turn over I would check the ignition switch for loose connection. If it turns over but wont start check the fuel pump relay.

My rexton 2005 wount star when its cold changed glow plug relay stil the same . and no glow plug light on the dash bord thanks


Two part answer, firstly the glow plug light. The glow plug light on a Ssangyong will only illuminate if the ambient temperature is low enough for the glow plugs to require heating. I did not believe it when I first heard this but sure enough, on the first frosty morning I had the truck, the glow plug light came on for a few seconds. Don't worry about it, the temperature needs to be really cold before it will come on.
Secondly the no-start issue, I had a similar problem with my Ssangyong Rexton. Unfortunately, it is the injector pump, the filter gets clogged with micro-particles of crud. Take it to a diesel pump specialist (as a Ssangyong dealer won't know what to do in my experience and they will charge $000's to fix) and get them to remove and clean the injector pump.

Key fob wont re set on my ssan yan rexton


I recently changed the battery on my key fob for my ssanyong rexton. I then did the following for the key fob to make it work. 1. Enter vehicle and close all doors.

2. Put seatbelt on (or clip it into the buckle) to shut the warning buzzer off.

3. Put key in ignition, turn to run position but don't start it.

4. Press and hold both buttons on key fob until red light on fob stays on. Then let go of both buttons. Then pressed the alarm button then the panic button, somthing like that. To be fair the button sequence after the red light came on is a bit vague. The alarm was blaring so i was happy when it just stopped.

I have a ssangyong rexton and it wont start it just has an orange light with checked on it what could it be


There's a number of possible reasons.
You don't mention if the engine turns over in the attempt, and you don't say which light is on.
A SsangYong service person can plug in a diagnostic tool to see what error codes are present.
