Hi, just picked up a 3.2 v6 sri and thereís a few problems ... of course there is!
Did a search but didnít really find anything..
Firstly it wonít start from the key 90% of the time, all I get the dash flickering (as if its nearly flat) and the starter motor clicking (replaced battery but still exactly the same) out of about 25 tries it fired up twice only. Iím thinking itís a dodgy starter motor?? or wiring to it? (canít actually find it in the mass of engine lol) it does however bump start so im thinking it defo is a starter motor problem.. is there a specific type for the 3.2ís?
On the drive home if I were to boot the car then it would rev and go but cut out mid rev and then bump start itself.. keeping my foot to the floor it would proceed to pick up like a train then die, pick up die pickup die etc etc like a kangaroo (everytime the dash needles and dash lights cutting out as if the car has stalled and no battery power).. no idea also
after ripping out all the old police wiring and repairing the endless wires that were cut and tapped together I noticed that the multifunction display unit didnít come on when I picked it up so had a look at the rear of it. Itís got a large grey plug but with nothing plugged into it. Directly behind it is a small plug just dangling there but it seems way too small to fit. Any ideas how to wire it up or find the plug would be greatly appreciated! I think the double din tape player that was thrown in there is wrong to as its got a little display on it which I thought was wrong seeing as the car is fitted with the MFD and steering controls.. Plus the tape deck donít work to lol
If I could get the car to fire up tidy and no cut out on heavy pedal play then I would be chuffed to beans as its a nice little car, high miles and a little scruffy but it was cheap.. well i think so
All comment and help are greatly appreciated
