I just finished swapping over a cam, and removed a chiptorque chip from the ecu and now the car wont crank over.

All it does is tick fast and now it wont even do that and one thermo fan comes on when you turn the ignition on and runs.

Ive had music on all day, but the motor cranked over fine when i just installed the cam to check for any issues.

Whacked the motor back together, removed the chip and all it did was tick fast. The crank doesnt turn at all

Theres 11 volts across the battery terminals with ignition off, battery f**k maybe?

yeah im an idiot, twas the battery.... managed to push start it.

So has a few hours of 'Fear Factory' killed my battery or can i just drive the car for awhile to put the charge back?

So i assume the thermos coming on is a signal for a flat battery?

ohh that s**t music will do it every time!


for some reason on manuals, (ive noticed) the themo's and AC clutch turn on when ign is turned on after a few hours.

Theres a logical reason, however i can recall why, I know my thermo's are wired to the ac clutch so they go flat out first thing while cranking, after the initial start...... 'nuthin' its normal as.
