1994 MK3 Start and cut out


Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I have a question i would like to ask. My polo is a 94 1.6L I4 and i'm having an issue where sometimes when i start the car up it would start up fine but cut out after about 1 second as if it stalls. Sometimes it would take several attempts before it would start fine again. It hasn't happened in 2 months prior to this week. Last time it happened was after a night of heavy rain. I'm not sure if that has something to do with it? I'm starting to think it could be the immobilizer? If that was the case, would buying a second hand one and putting it in fix the problem? or what else can i check? Thanks

It dose sound like immobiliser, first though check the ecu and fuse box for water ingress

 

Replacing the immobiliser will also require the ecu and ingition chip from the same car, basically a full computer transplant

Can you tell me where the ecu is located? I have had issues with water coming from somewhere into the car before. Not sure if that has done something to it.

The ECU is under the scuttle trim panel at the bottom of the windscreen
