Doesn t start


When you say the pump has been serviced, what do you mean ?
Usually when it fails to start cold, the fuel pressure is very low. And that is often because of a faulty check valve in the pump allowing fuel pressure to drain back into the tank.

This intermittent kind of "no start" problem can often be a result of a failing anti theft system. Read this link and compare you symptoms. If you see a light that reads "security" when this happens, then this is definitely your problem. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/
