looked on here and I read something about earthing out the top right pin on diagnistic panel, tried it and nothing but a noise under the bonnet and still not start. To replace the brown and green fuse under the overflow, do I need to go genuine or can I get a non gen replacent?

genuine are really expensive, but i got a replacement and it was still 40 odd bucks for non genuine

ok, replaced the coil as the spark was low..... no start. Tried the little bit of fuel down the pvc and she started and stalled. Replaced the fuel pump and no better. fuel pump powers up nicely, I checked the fuses in front of the air box and beside the overflow and they are all good. What now?


If she fired when your poured fuel ito the throttle body, it probably won't be the Cam Angle Sensor. My bet is still on the injectors not firing. ECU issue more than likely. I have a EF Fairmont ECU here as well as Relays if you get stuck.

if you have another ef/el swap parts over that are the same for example if you have or a neighbour or friend has an ef, swap the ecu's around, if their car starts with yours and your car doesnt start with theirs, its another problem, same with the relays etc,
