Hi, I have a 1999 Excel (Accent). The other day it just wouldn't start, It would crank over fine, but it wouldn’t fire. After trying a few different things, we decided to put a jump start pack on it, even though it was still cranking over on its own battery. After about 20 seconds of cranking with the starter pack it fired up and ran fine.
I drove it down to the shops and back with no problems.
The next day the same problem, no firing. It will crank fine (nice and quick) and the battery is only a little over 3 months old.
I've checked the CAM angle sensor, and its getting power, and the earth is fine. I've also checked the throttle position sensor and that is also working correctly.
I ran through the trouble code process and it came back saying there is nothing wrong, but when I tested the Actuator Control Sequence Procedure it came back saying there was a problem with injector 1-2-3-4.
There is defiantly no spark and the injectors are defiantly not working either.
I was thinking it might be the Crank angle sensor, but the test didn’t show it as been faulty. I was going to test it but I cant find where about it is located.
Does anyone have any idea's? maybe faulty ECU? or crank angle sensor (If so, where the **** is it??)
I would usually give up at this stage and bring it to a mechanic, but I've fallen on some hard times, and don’t have any spare money to spend on it.
Any help is very much appreciated.
