Re: 1999 fiat scudo 1.9 td non starting

Hi mate,

Highly unlikely to be a problem with the glow plugs. You have said there is no fuel getting past the pump... how did you check this, did you do a leak off test?

If indeed there is no fuel getting past the pump, then its likely that the stop solonoid is sticking on the HP fuel pump. This is somwhat common. IS there any other warnings on? Such as "code"

Alan

Re: 1999 fiat scudo 1.9 td non starting

ahhhh one last thing , jeez i feel like inspector cluso here ,,if the stop soleniod on the pump is faulty ,,is the ecu clever enough to put out the glow plug lights ,and put on the amber fuel fault management light ,i guess im just trying to make a decent guess that the fault is not in the ecu ,,thx again ,,alan

Re: 1999 fiat scudo 1.9 td non starting

some stop solenoids you can test by removing the plunger from them then refitting. the engine should start but you'd need to stall it to get it to stop if it is the solenoid thats the problem. Are you actually getting 12v to the solenoid?

Hi mate,

Just another quick thing to add... have you tried resetting the emergency fuel cut off switch?
