hi all.lh

i have a problem with a vw golf 51 plate 1.9 tdi with the engine code alh.

the vehicle pulled up after a 20 mile journey and the ignition turned off to open the driveway gate. on getting back into the vehicle, no start. engine cranks swiftly enough just wont fire.

i believe these engines dont have glowplugs or a fuel tank/inline fuel supply pump.

it does however start for a split second?

no dash warning lights ignited (immobilizer-engine management)

removed the fuel stop soleniod plunger, and the fuel pipe to injectors have fuel.? (2 and 4 checked)

the fuel soloniod has power for 3-4 seconds?

any ideas?

hi
welcome to the forum, is this your own car ?

Starting for a second then dying is typical of a immobilizer issue, have you tried the spare Key ?


The fuel cut off solenoid is only a back up device, fueling including stop is controlled internally on EDC diesel control systems.

customers car.

no codesread yet as the guy i use cant do it till wednesday. no dash lights thou and he feels no codes will be present.

the engine does not start as immobilizer fault, its more like a 2 cyl cough and very split second.

i have just read that this engine code has a inlet throttle flap/valve which can stick closed??

Hi

Check the inlet shut of plate is not stuck ( anti shudder )

I had one with the same problem a few days ago.

If it cranks over in an odd way, reminiscent of an engine with no compression, that will be the anti shudder flap like Dave says.

Vile Invention

Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
