Car will no longer start?
« on: May 31, 2012, 11:37:55 PM »
Hey guys (i apologize if this is in the wrong section - possibly old school?)

Took my R30 for a drive last friday, tank wasn't empty but id say a 1/4.
maybe a total of 2 hours driving, parked it up for 4 hours, started up again
perfect, drove back home (less then 10 mins) and parked up for the night then Monday morning cranked her over and she couldn't start (turned over but wouldn't fire).

Usually when I turn ignition on you would hear the pump (pretty loud) prime, then it'd turn over first go. now it keeps turning over, no fuel pump noise - haven't had time to do checks for spark and power to the pump.

Checked all the fuses they're fine, my old man went to the extent of unplugging the ECU for an hour and re-plugged her (yay for being at work and not knowing this until I got home **** sakes!)

Im thinking a ****ed pump - my old man thinking relays/ecu

I'm no mechanic/sparky just wanting your thoughts.
I'll end up taking her down to a sparky eventually I think, and let it go from there.

Yeah fuel pump or relay would be the first port of call, especially considering you said you can no longer hear the pump prime!
I can't see why this is the wrong section either :) Old or new, it's still a "technical" issue

Try hard runing power direct to the fuel pump if it primes its elecrical if it doesnt then its the pump sorted
