Ford vs Commodore in the big race this weekend.

I think Commodore got pole with Whincup.

 

Or do you mean VS commodore wont start ?

Contact the seller if you bought it from a seller on eBay.

the big three

 

coil packs and wiring to it (no spark)

 

fuel pump/relay/earth (listen for it ticking before you try to wind the engine over) give the tank a thump or swap the a/c relay with the fp relay

 

crankshaft sensor (pour water over it and try again)

 

and an oldie but a goodie

 

Automatic (starter inhibitor switch)..check its not in drive... try it in neutral or park with a little wobble

 

If you have not got a clue what I am talking about.....ring a mechanic

Most VS commodores have a security lock,so you need to push the unlock button on the key and listen

for a click noise,this means that the security lock has been unlocked and you can start the car.

This lock times out also so if you don't start the car asap you will need to press the unlock button again.

This information is only relevant if your car has central locking on the doors?

Called an immobiliser. Usually 20 -30 secs to start the car.

The VS has a sensor ring around the ignition switch ( just looks like a chrome dress ring ) . This sometimes fails on VS's ( common problem ) and it does not pick up the chip code from the key when the key is inserted into the ignition. If you push the door unlock button on the key while it is inserted and the car starts, the sensor ring could be faulty. You can drive the car for months without fixing it, but you just have to insert the key and press the door unlock  button each time to start the car.
