Did you ever get to the bottom of this problem? My car has the same codes- dealer says it might be the fuel pump relay. Wondering what you found out?

On some models, the Engine Control unit has a power supply relay. These relays some times get internal dry solder points. After driving for some time the the solder will get hot and separate. When it cools down it makes contact again. You will have to replace this relay or open it up and re- solder the solder joints. The relay is usually located on the main relay station in position 3. the relay station is located behind the right dash panel.[right hand drive vehicles]. You may need to refer to a manual for your specific model to find the exact location of the relay.

Engine died while driving, no spark, replaced coil, now starts, idles, runs well at low rpm, but misfires when accelerating. No check engine costs thrown. What should I check next.


Change your ignition module. The distributor is a weak point of the Honda, I will always change out the whole thing than just try the coil.

Why won't 1999 vw beetle restart when hot


More detail is needed. Does the engine crank but will not start? How long will it take to cool down and restart after the engine has been warm and shut off? Does it attempt to fire but not stay running, or just crank without any sign of ignition (engine attempting to start)?

Vw 98 cabrio wont start when its wet out


The coils in these cars are very susceptible to moisture causing poor engine running conditions, misfires and no start. They also tend to crack. This can be verified with a spray bottle full of water. Simply spray the coil, and ignition wires once you've gotten the engine running if it stalls, arks, misfires idle changes... Replaced the coil and/or ignition wires. Good luck.

1995 ford 4.9 stright 6 runs for a couple min then dies


The parts you replaced don't typically fail due to heat/cold cycles.You need to see if it might be the ignition coil.Make the coil easily accessable(take of the engine cover).Have a 12v test light and some sort of spark tester handy.Start the engine,let it run until it quits.See if you have spark at the coil.If not, unplug the low voltage connector on the coil,and put the test light across the connector,and crank the engine.The light should flash on and off.If it does,replace the ignition coil. If it doesn't flash,you may have a bad crank sensor,but this usually won't make it shut off,instead,it will cause it not to restart after heat soaking for a couple minutes.(I'm betting on the igniton coil).

1997 vw cabrio 2.0 . Have replaced fuel relay, fuel filter, crankshaft position sensor. and the motor will shut off after a few minutes of driving. It's almost like you turn the key off !


It could be lots of things like a bad ignition coil or a bad ignition module. The best place to start would be to scan your engine control module for possible fault codes.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the ignition coil. If the ignition coil gets hot the car may stall or may not start right away till it cools down. The ignition coil is surely faulty and replacement is surely necessary.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

under the coil is mounted a bosch ignition module with seven connections on it ,renew this module thats all it needs ,if that doesnt work change the front crank sensor ,one 10mm headed bolt holds it it on ,either one of these could have a intermittant fault ,the front crank sensor is a jaguar only part and costs about 50 euros the ignition module is a standard type and is available from a auto factor if its in your hand as it doesnt show in the catalogue but its the same as a vw golf ,vw transporter and some citreons and peugeots as well ,should not cost more than 35 euros

Good Evening, you might want to check those injectors, I can not remember for certain but that setup was sequential and when one or two have a problem it would take out the rest. Ohm out the injectors and see what you have there.
