left key in "on" position overnight, now no start
key was apparently left in on position overnite, now it won't start, battery's good, engine
turns, just no ignition now. Only thing performed so far was pulling ground cable for 5 mins
and see if it reset, alas, it did not, did the coil pak get burnt up???
2.2 eco engine
It could have burned out the control module. First thing I'd do is check for spark. Check your fuses as well. HTH. -Jim
thanks jim, checked fuses under hood, all good, was getting dark so checking spark tomorrow, much thanks PS: pricing ICM's now, in case ;)
You're welcome. Glad to help. Keep us posted. -Jim
good news is that the ICM is good, spark a'plenty there, seems that somebody, not I, had started car.....and walked away, ergo, run all night and eventually out of gas, guess why battery wasn't dead. Had a 1/2 tank of gas in it day before. Damn kids I'm betting ;) never bothered to look @ fuel gauge because I had just put 20$ in it day before. SO putting 2 + 2 together, key left in on, and gas now gone, plus battery still good, this Sherlock deduces it was some shenanigan's going on and NOT mechanical / electrical failure....Sorry to have bothered...lol
Oh my goodness! That's hilarious!! Thanks for letting us know. Glad it was that!! -Jim
