Mondeo Wont Start

5 posts in this topic

Hi all looking for a bit of help please.

I have a mondeo Tddi it started spluttering then cut out I waited until the temp went back down and it would start fine but the other day it cut out and wouldnt restart. So I thought to myself ahhh the egr valve I cleaned it all out along with the inlets still wouldnt start. I changed the fuel filter and nothing. Ive put a diagnostic kit on it and it came up with main relay all relays have now been tested and working fine. Ive had a look at the injectors and have diesal coming out ( not sure of the pressure though ). Im now at a loss at to what it could be any advice would be appreciated as I really dont want to get rid of it :( I dont have money to keep throwing at it either)

P1361 seems that you may need to replace the relay (I believe they are removable)

b2290 Refers to an airbag sensor, it seems to be more the sensor in the seat, you would likely need to replace the seat if your sensor is embedded!

Those B codes dont appear to be correct (or perhaps the scan tool misread them?) but anything COM bus related, tends to be a wiring issue, or a duff sensor. Is there anyway that you can scan again with different hardware?

i had that b code once. just outta curiousity what diagnostics you used?? if its a sealey,etc they throw up false codes sometimes which make no sense.
