Doesnt even crank

Recommended Posts

Hello

Have a transit connect 1.8 in just now that wont start. Came in initially after engine swap, did start but then cut out. They tried towing it in case it was air locked, still wouldn’t start but would crank. Then it stopped cranking at all. Nothing happens when the key is turned. Immo light is off after ignition is turned on. Powers and earths to pcm good. Starter relay isnt reciving ground from pcm. Wire integrity from pcm to relay is good. Pcm isn’t commanding a start. Pcm sent to specialist and was said to be good. All fuses checked and are in order. No codes present. Anyone here have any ideas. Any advice greatly appreciated

Petrol or diesel?

The next question after mrtn's is what year?  You will need to scan it.  If you put 12 volts to the starter solenoid you can tell if the starter is still good.

1.8 petrol engines were early 2000s.

 2012 Diesel and starter and wiring is still good as i can get it to crank if i give it an earth at the relay. The one the pcm isn’t providing.

You need a good scan tool  to check the Modules .
