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.

Cheers Aidan

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.
