    Default s16 no start

    Hey all,
    Wondering if anyone has any tips or come up with this problem before.
    Just driving along in my 1994 306 s16 and i just lost all power and the rev counter just went to 0. Once I pulled over and tried to restart I noticed my engine light wasn't coming on just as I turn the ignition on to accessories. It'll crank fine, doesn't sound like loss of compression, so I'm guessing its an electrical fault not getting any power to the ecu? I checked the relay on the firewall behind the battery and it doesn't click when the key is turned. Anyone seen this problem before? Any pointers will be greatly appreciated

    Might even be the ECU. Can you borrow one from someone else to see if that makes any difference?

    Does it have an after market alarm installed?

    Nope no alarm what so ever.

    Does anyone have a spare brown double relay which sits on the firewall behind the battery and ecu?

    Check the ignition switch and associated wires before you go tearing out the ecu.

    I have a wiring diagram and have checked the wires from the ignition seem to be all okay. Was told that the relay behind the ecu on the firewall should click when key on even with the engine ecu disconnected but I'm not getting anything at all.

    That would be the fuel pump relay which sits behind the ecu held on by a 8 or 10 mm nut.

    They very rarely fail. I think I have one lying around.

    Well its either the relay or the ecu, much rather go with the cheaper option first.
    Would you be willing to sell the relay and how much?

    Got myself a new relay, plugged it in, switched on the ignition, engine light comes on (good sign) and starts first go .
    Believe the relay also controls the power on from the ignition switch to the engine ecu.

    Cheers for everyone's help and suggestions.
