Another no start. Very frustrated!
Pulled in for lunch just down the street. came back out and NO START!!!!!!! did the few things i could remember, unplugged the ipr(someone said it goes into dummy mode) the tach reads 300rpm while cranking so dont think CPS(have 2 on order anyway). Normally when you turn the key to the run position the Service Engine Soon light will stay illuminated atleast for a few seconds.. well mine comes on and bam its off in about 1/2second, just a flash. took the ECU out and removed and cleaned all connections with alcohol both the pin side and the chip side. I tried starting without the chip installed. NOTHING!! BTW who the heck designed the location of that ECU should be shot but thats a different story. I opened up the filter housing and the fuel is just as clean as can be. installed a new filter anyway. NO START! it cranks over fine. I have had probs with my clutch saftey switch latley due to a worn clutch rod on the master, but it turns over fine! does it also have a ignition cut out as well? Any info would be helpful.
