Default Expert wont start!

Running perfectly one day, refused to start the next! Turns over fine but wont fire. Was told that a low battery would send wrong signal to engine management and tell it not to fire. Charged battery up, it was half charged but put this down to all the pratting about trying to start it. Ran jump leads from the frontera to give it extra juice and she started
Drove it that night, got home and turned it off. Turned key on again and it started fine.

Next morning nothing!!!! Checked battery, battery fully charged. Ran jump leads across again but still nothing.

Just taken all the manifold off to check the glow plugs. They are all fine.

Any ideas on where to go from here??

Fault code would help if you can get it scanned. The battery needs a proper check too, I would get that done first.

Problem is i need to start it to get it to a garage for diagnostics!!!! Nearest peugeot planet is Crewe 1hr 30 mins away!!

Battery was only replaced 12 mths ago. I had serious battery issues for a while WITH the new battery and found that the heater was taking a main feed so was still on after the engine was turned off and draining my battery. Fixed that now though. Battery is fully charged according to charger. May be worth trying a different battery i suppose??

Will any diagnostic machine work on it? I know a friends neighbour checked her Rover, maybe he'll come out to me......

Im thinking bad thoughts here with fuel pump. Heard its a knightmare when they go getting them timed back in etc. Anyone know of a rough cost if it is this?? Really skint so cant afford to fix it if its expensive. Need to do what i can myself first.

Generic readers may give you some idea, but they won't be as good as a Planet diag

Any idea whether the "planet people" do home visits??? Seriously have no way of getting this van off the drive its parked forward in an awkward place and has to be driven out! I expect if they do there will be a horrendous charge??

Home visits would be purely down to the individual concerned.
We normally charge 10-20 for fault reading, but obviously that doesn't involve any travelling

Where are you based?

Battery power loss would result in losing configuration in ecu`s , losing injector code`s and losing key codes from my experience ,
these are easily rectified with pp2000 if these were found to be any of the faults.

All the ones we know about, or who have volunteered to help others, are on the Google map I'm afraid.

Use this and then you can send him a PM

The dealer will definitely have one of these readers... all we have are clones of the dealer software
