G40 won't start/turn over
« on: January 26, 2019, 11:54:32 am »
Hi all,

Came out the other day to give the G a blast after a couple of days standing and it's completely dead.

Dashboard lights/radio/headlights all come on but no turn over. Not even a solenoid click

I can also hear an electrical motor sound toward the rear which i presume is the fuel pump.

I don't think it's the battery as all the electrics work and i've tried jumping it with a battery pack.

Anyone got a clue what might be up? My mechanic skills are a work in progress so it's all a learning curve!

Dash lights go out when you try to crank it? If they do your batteries died. Common issue in the cold weather.

Check both relays next to the ECU as well as the big yellow fuse just incase.
