a140
Hi,
I have a w reg a140. it has always shown diagnostic codes when i have taken it to my local garage. Recently wont start, however when plugged into garages diagnostic machine wont connect or show any codes, had another garage bring his delux equipment still wont give up any codes, in fact squat all. Engine turns over ok, but wont start , neither will it bumpstart.

Has anyone any ideas about what could be causing engine not to be showing any diagnostic codes

many thanks

Not sure what the diagnostic kit being used is , but the main thing is that they have regularly obtained diagnostic information from the a140 in the past to analyse several problems. So the kit is fine, the car is just not sending any info or not allowing any info to be read

engine control relay must be fitted and working to check for supply voltage voltages are typical values (good batt)
