No start issue('04 S Anniversary edition)


Recommended Posts

This is a repeat issue.

First occurence was Jan. 3, '06. problem was diagnosed as a bad fuel pump. R and R fuel pump.

With less than 1,000 miles since repair, car again would crank but not start. April 17, '06.

Onboth occasions it was th day's FIRST start. The motor actually caught, just momentarily, then died. Afterwards it just cranked and would not fire.

I'm now concerned that the first diagnisis was incorrect. I'm thinking there is something in the fuel delivery system that is cutting off fuel...and then staying in that mode.

I think during the installation of the first fuel pump, the system was, for lack of a better word, reset. Thus it appeared to fix problem.

I have heard of no fuel pump issue in these cars and dealer agrees, they have no had any others go south.

What do you think ??

I think as a start you should get a download of the fault codes from the dealer and have them walk you through them. You're under warranty and the best bet is to work through your dealer first before going to PCNA. I wouldn't stray from the dealership path to other options since that would jeopardize your coverage.

..well the dealer found that a fuel line which is part of the pump disconnected, thus no pressure. He ordered new pump becuase when the line was reconnected it was easily disconnected again. He said normally when attached you must really force them off.

it makes me wonder whether they were properly attached when the 1st pump was replaced.

The service manual has a specific warning about being extremely careful with the fuel line connections stating they are easily damaged and require the complete fuel line to be replaced if the connector is damaged. I'd speculate that's exactly what happened when they replaced your fuel pump the first time. Hopefully they recognize the possibility that it's the fuel line side of the connector that might be bad and not simply replace the pump again because that's the easiest part to swap out.
