Re: About time really

My first thought would be crank sensor but remind me, what engine is this one?

Have you had the eml come on at all??

Re: About time really

Sorry to hear about your troubles. I can't help with the reasons behind it though I am afraid; I have enough of a problem working out 80's electronics!

Hope you get it sorted!

Re: About time really

Crank sensor changed: still not running, not even for a few seconds.


No warning lights either. Will probably pull the plugs to double check the sparks.


Btw it's a 75, so 1242cc 8v mpi.




My love for this car's currently waning. The Uno which a neighbours' selling is tempting right now.

Re: About time really

well yes, check for fuel and spark and get back. I suspect you won't have one or the other, if it was the crank sensor you'd have neither.

Re: About time really

Well, the new crank sensor's a dud.


Refitted the old one for now, but it's still stutters a little on idle.


Spark's good, by the way.

Re: About time really

Check me out with all these updates!


The saga is still ongoing: Engine's running alright now, but the injector light keeps popping up.


Anyone know if a cheapo eBay code reader with an adaptor cable stands any chance of working?


Plus, I've ben waiting over a month for a 2nd hand wiper linkage to arrive from eBay. I understand the seller has other things to worry about, and it ended at 99p, but a month?

Re: About time really

you need a fiat 3pin to obd adpator (just stick 'fiat 3 pin' in ebay and it bring them up) coupled with a vagcom cable.

Then download IAWScan2 (google it, its completely free to download) or MultiEcuScan free version will read the codes, can't remember is free MES clears codes or not though.

Re: About time really

Well Stanford's gonna be a no go for the Punto.


Keeps cutting out, but will idle fine on the driveway.

Plus I've fried the diagnostic tool adaptor cable I got from eBay. oops.


Anyone recommend a hire firm?

Re: About time really

Still having problems:


In my attempts to sort out this running problem, I've managed to melt a diagnostic adaptor lead, wait 2 hours for a mate with a laptop & software which wouldn't connect, and borrow my sisters laptop to try multiecuscan. This has also failed to connect.

I'm out of ideas: Any more suggestions?

Re: About time really

multiecuscan can defo connect to this ecu, as can IAW-Scan2 as i mentioned before.

If they aren't then i would guess its the cables you are using that don't work.

Re: About time really

Got scanned at a garage, and they thought I'd swapped the motor due to the number of codes!


Sorting this out might take a while...

Re: About time really

mmmmm, you would have been better to clear all the codes and then run the car for a bit and then read codes again - stored codes could be very old!!

But for my curiosity, what did the reader throw up?

Re: About time really

The garage who scanned it are unable to clear the codes, they think there's an ECU problem.


For giggles, here's what it came up with (apologies if it's too small to read):





I'm off to Google "ECU repairs"...

Re: About time really

mmmmm, thats alot of codes lol.. Sure there isn't just a bad earth in the bay somewhere on the engine loom?? It quite hard to read that but seems like its reporting everything on the engine loom. Just a thought before you start spending money on ecu testing and repairs.
