I am certainly in need of some Knowledge,
Guys i got to be the most Noobish guy on this site (maybe) I've just
found and imported a WRX Subaru from Japan, My Car:
You can see from the pictures exactly what is has installed/fitted.
I got this June 13th i think it was, within 2wks it was on the road and i've had a CAT2 immobiliser fitted, It's given me no problems at all what so ever starting, running ect.
Yesterday i borrowed it my ex partner to get to work (no worries she's a very safe and competent driver) but she rang me in the morn "it wont start, it wont start" she says, then i go off my head a touch whilst having to get out of bed, get dressed and go get and sort my car out (not had much sleep)
5 mins later "it's started now, it's ok" she says, Now i know at this point my baby's ok i can go off my head at being woke up and give her a piece of my mind (had a wash u see so there's no going back to sleep now)
Any hows, work finishes she brings it home and i get in to go pick up the ass burner (madras curry) thought but not sure if the fuel pump struggled a bit winding up.? any hows gets to curry house comes out and that's why im here now......... It would not start, my oh my oh my, i have no patience i got to stress this, im the guy in the advert who parks his car well away from danger but still gets hit lol any hows i noticed no Fuel Pump noise on the turn of the ignition.? well i know thats defiantly the reason for not starting so how to fix.?
I was just going to put a direct test on the pump to see if it fires up and if not then i was going to volt test the incoming wires to the pump to see if there's any current when ignition is turned on, is that a good thing to start with or useless.?
If the pump didn't fire up and there's a current coming to it then i know replacing the Pump would fix the problem. If the pump fires up but no current is going through on turn of key then i'd go check and hopefully find a broken fuse (a re-check as checked them once in dark, all seemed fine but need to do it in daytime) Anything past that im knackered.?????
Doing these tests in a bit but any help on this problem with this model would be appreciated.
Just checked the Re-Lay (if i got the right thing.?) SBF 5 is it.?
and i think its fine, doesn't look broken and i swapped it with another just to test - still no wind up on the fuel pump. Fuses (as blured as the picture is sry) in the car are all fine.
Going to check the fuel pump itself and the power supply leading to it now but is this looking like a fuel pump failure.? And am i right in looking under the back seat for this fuel pump.?
Enough blabbing, off i go to test.!!
Just had the back seats up and cant see a fuel pump.?
