Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

I let my friend borrow my car. He let it sit for a month or two (Winter months) and now it wont start.. I've replaced the battery and the spark plugs. The engine cranks and has started only twice for me. The last time it started it stayed running for about 2 minutes. it was running well at a normal idle... and then all of a sudden stalled. The stall was like someone had turned the keyt in the off position. I check the key and it was still in the runn position. The "message center" in the dash had said the car entered limp home mode. I ran the codes in the computer and it came up with 1586 - P1586 Throttle Control Unit Throttle Position Malfunction. Do you know if this is a permanite error, or just a one time malfunction.. And do you know how to take it out of limp home mode?

    It very well could be that. But I hear the fuel pump start up when the car key is in the acc position. And it still doesnt start even if I spary a little starting fluid in it. Do you still think its the fuel pump/ fuel filter?

1983 Capri RS WONT START it is getting spark to the plugs and fuel turns over fine just wont start

Points or electronic ignition? Corroborator, or fuel injection? Was the car sitting idol for a long period of time, say, 6 months to more than 1 year? With a car that old, I would start with replacing spark plug and ignition wiring. Have you checked the spark plugs? Make sure they're cleaned and gaped. If corroded, replace them.

MR 2000 toyota would not start after sitting all winter.

the battery can be disconnected if you let it sit for more than a week. most common drain that i encounter is in the audio system. disconnect the negative battery cable and put a test light (wired light bulb) between battery post and cable end. if the light is on or even dim, start pulling fuses one at a time. if the light stays on, replace the fuse and move on. if the light goes out then you have found which circuit the draw is in.

97 Merc Grand Marquis wont turn over after sitting for the winter. Battery is good. Ran great until sitting for 2 months.

The starter is probably just hung up, I would recommend that you gently tap on it with a rubber mallet, or the wooden end of a hammer.

Can't start 2001 volvo S60 after sitting for 18 months

Not an expert on this, but I would change the oil and oil filter and you might want to check all belts/hoses under the hood for cracking and replace as necessary. It's likely you'll have to do that after a car sitting idle so long. Don't know if spark plugs should be replaced after not firing for that long, but maybe you want to take a look at those as well.
