Fusion 1.6 Tdci (05 Reg) Intermittent Ignition Problem

3 posts in this topic

Hi, every so often the ignition system seems to die. Works perfectly then the next time I go to start up the amber light flashes and nothing happens. Eventually it will start (seemingly when it feels like it) but a really frustrating intermittent fault.

Have replaced the ignition barrel with no effect, so would be grateful if anyone knows if this is a common fault; if so what's usually the problem.

Car excellent in all other respects.

Cheers

Nick.

Sounds more like a loose connection some where which could be a real pain to find , open up your fuse box and check all plugs are secure , sometimes they can get knocked or work loose

Thanks. At electronics specialist as we speak; done all the diagnostics etc and I think he's come to the same conclusion as you...

This problem does prop up from time to time on this model / engine but nobody has a definite solution thus far.
