My car has been running fine, but went to start it the other day and it just cut out almost straight away. Thought I'd stalled it so tried again and same thing happened.
Couldn't understand it but I suspected the Air Mass Meter so unplugged it. The engine runs fine without it plugged in, but as soon as I plugged it back in it stopped working, i.e it cuts the engine out immideitly. The traction control light and engine management have now come on.
I ordered a cheaper replacement meter and it hasn't fixed the problem. Also I have plugged the car into my neighbours ETHOS diagnostic and it picks up no codes apart from those picked up from running it without the meter. Very strange!
Not really sure what to do?
Any help or experience with this would be much appreciated!
