First Problems? Are they related?
So I was driving home the other day and my heating coil light starts flashing, "oh no!"
I then stopped at a set of traffic lights and my engine cut out and failed to start up again.
When my friendly neighbourhood AA man inspected my car he determined that the cause was one of the following:
NO Fuel! - My gauge was reporting over 1/4 of a tank
Air in my system
Faulty fuel gauge
He then proceeded to put £5 worth of diesel in and the car started up again.
That evening I decided to go and fill my tank up and when I turned the ignition on, the fuel gauge and the distance indicator were randomly changing from 0 - 1/4 full and 0 - 100 miles respectively.
Anyway off I ventured, very warily, to the petrol station. The tank took 55 litres to fill which suggests that there was at least 2 gallons left in the tank prior to the AA man sticking a fiver in.
So for the time being everything is pointing to my fuel sensors / gauge.
The following error codes occured:
463a Engine Control unit disabled
0226 Start of injection control - Control Difference
05A1 Fuel Shortage Sensor
0560 Injection pump speed signal faulty
They have been cleared to see if they re-occur.
Bizarrely my motor seems to be running better now.
