i have a VW Polo which is giving problems. I travelled for about 10kms and parked. After 15mins i started it, raved once and the engine shut off. What could be the problem here?
there could be one of many issues. What exactly did it do when you started it and did it do it again when you tried restarting it?
When i started it, the engine switched on and when i pressed the accelerator pedal it raved once and switched off. An auto mechanic looked at it and is saying the car has a shot wire hence why it is switching off. A fuse linked to the computer box is blowing once the engine is switched on.
Answer to you question, it kept on shutting off once swtched on and raved once.
ok yea that sounds like a short. to rectify find the wire that is shorting and repair or replace it.
Good day. When connected, water leaks into my VW polo computer box through the connectors. When disconnected the connection tips show they have been exposed to water and have rust on them. It seems however that the water is leaking from the ECU connectors. If not attended to the connection pins break and the computer box stops working. This has happened and now the car cranks but does not start. Do you know what could be the problem?
