Thread: Vehicle died, won't restart.

  1. Default Vehicle died, won't restart.

    Hey there, had my Avenger EFI installed for a long while when last week out of the blue, it died while driving & wouldn't restart. Cranks but won't fire up. Wore my battery down troubleshooting, so I charged it up and even with a vehicle jumping it it wouldn't start, specifically it won't spark the plugs. Got a new coil, no fix. Checked fuel pressure, all good.

    Let it sit for a week and went to start it today with a jump, and it fired right up. Idled a bit roughly to about 130° coolant temp and shut down and won't restart again. Battery voltage is low, but my alternator is good, when running I'm at 14.4V. With jump, it cranks at +13V. What could I be looking at here?

    I'd look for a loose ground. Andrew
