TOTAL SHUTDOWN !!
« on: June 10, 2018, 12:55:12 PM »
Has anyone else had total and complete loss of power/shutdown.?
I was accelerating up a fairly steep hill and suddenly the engine was dead in a split second. managed to pull to near side of road and quickly put hazards on. Pressed starter button and car was simply cranking somewhat endlessly! Waited a couple of minutes, and tried the start button and with a little reluctance the car started again and normal service APPEARED to have been restored.
Obviously I'm now worried that this incident may reoccur at any time.
Anyone got any thoughts/advice ?

Check your battery connections would be the first thought, in case something is loose.

After that it could be fuel system, ignition switch, engine electrics etc.  Getting a fault log code read would help you narrow it down.

First thing to do is disconnect the battery for 20 minutes...Neg lead only, if that doesn't resolve it ...I would be looking at camshaft sensor....diags would be a good idea....

This happened to me a few days ago also, on acceleration the car just stopped, I rolled to a stop and the car engaged Park. It would not start at all. I removed the key waited a few mins and it started right up again. I drove a mile or so and it happened again, and again until I eventually got home. I plugged my Carly adaptor in and it gave me a code for Injector #6, the car idle's fine, just when you apply some acceleration it grinds to a halt. I will have to change the injector to see if that solve's the problem.
