Wont start

Postby gray91 » Mon Jun 11, 2018 9:32 am

Just wondered if anyone could help. Basically i bought a 1990 G reg golf gti 8v last month ( non runner) and iv had a good look everything looks to be in the right place but when i turn the key the lift pump primes and the car struggles to turn over . But the dash lights dont seem to be right because i dont get a battery light when i turn the key all i get is the oil and coolant lights anyone had the same problem ?

Could be the ECU?

Check the main earth, it's around my the gearbox mount somewhere. Clean it up. Sometimes the ECU's can get fried if the earth has gone bad. Check the general condition of all the terminals in the bay.
