This happened to me, the ECM went bad and had to be replaced. Try to find a used one.

My van has been revving up and down for 2 days and would cut off while driving and now wont start.


The first thing you need to do is run a fault code test through the diagnostic connector under the dash.

1998 Deville was drove to work came out it wouldn't start replaced the battery. Now it turns over but wont start. Any suggestions?


auto right? there is a neutral/park relay on automatic transmission equipped cars. if it is broken or loose it wont let you to run engine (like you did not place the shifter to N or P position)

also for some US made cars you need to press brake pedal to start car, there is a switch for that you need to find its location on your car.

least possible option. your immobilizer is problematic. it can unlock doors but wont allow it to run engine.

There must have been a 'Check Engine' Light? When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis. You'll need an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostics II) code reader. You should find a P07?? number stored (P07??... is a transmission code).

Car wont start, EPC light on


First of all you need to access the Engine Control Module (ECM) using suitable diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's memored. DTC = Diagnostic Trouble Code. Then you will bu full informed about the root cause of the problem, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM. Then the EPC (Electronic Pedal Control) yellow light will turn OFF, and the engine will start.

My 98 Audi a4 quattro has sat for about a year after the transmission went bad in it. I charged the battery to see if it would start about a month ago and it did and it seemed fine. I had it towed to a...


The Engine Control Module (ECM) and Transmission Control Module (TCM) can only be accessed using diagnostic equipment (e.g.: VAS, VAG-COM, Bosch KTS, Texa, ...) connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored. Then you will be full informed about pieces out of order, and you will be able to repair damages & replace bad pieces. Therefore you will can erase all faults memored, and reset ECM & TCM. Finally you will start the engine and test the car. If you will send me the engine type, I will can send you back the fuel pump fuse & relay positions, for cheking them, and also all supplementary informations that you need.

The car wont start sometimes and sometimes it will. The engine doesn't even turn over but it's not a battery problem because we had that checked. What could it be?


Dear Madam or Sir,

this is a well known problem with the immobilizer system.

See the following official tech bulletin :

Affected vehicles:
All models with Bosch RB8 instrument panel up to 2002 MY.


Problem:

Engine starts and cuts out immediately.

Trouble code stored: 17978 (P1570) - engine control module (ECM), immobilizer active.

Trouble code stored: 18058 (P1650) - CAN data bus, instrumentation - no signal.


Cause
Immobilizer fault.
System arms when ignition switched ON.

Remedy:
Access fault memory. If trouble codes present fit modified instrument panel (incorporating immobilizer control module).

Note: Immobilizer can only be programmed using diagnostic equipment.

Audi a4 throttle control unit


immobilizer not recognizing key. vehicle will start and cut out immediately. try unplugging instrument cluster and recconecting as they sometimes develope a bad connection due to connector pins being very fine. check connection between ignition barrel and dash cluster. immobilizer built into cluster. if engine control unit has been changed immobilizer won't recognise it, must be adapted using diagnostic reader. this is done by entering instruments [code 17] select adaption [code 10] and channel 00 [erase learned values] and confirm. keys may need to be adapted to immobilizer [only at dealer as key code is needed.
