d90 v8 no start issues
I recently brought in a customers d90 v8 gas powered rover in to the shop. It had been sitting for a long while, a year or so , and I was given the go ahead to replace a bunch of parts , from brakes to suspension.
I installed a new battery , and tried to start the vehicle. It will not crank unless you keep the key in crank position. then after a few seconds it will crank, but still no start.
Went and checked for spark, None, fuel injection pulse, None. So I figured it must be ECM related. So I checked the main harness at the ecm, no problems there , clean, so then I figured to check the main relay. It was not enacting while cranking , I checked the wiring into the relay and looked like I was not getting a ground to close the relays.
This car has the alarm module under the dash board but I am not sure t its even working. Does anybody have an idea how to check this to see if its interrupting the signal for the relay box? or is there a way to bypass it ?
Im stuck on this now, I have replaced all the parts needed I just have to get it running.
Please guide me to a site or name of a good rover mechanic who can help.
thanks a bunch
