First signs of trouble with my Eldo.


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

This afternoon i started and drove my car for 100 feet and parked it at another spot.

Turned it off and all fine.

Tonight.... key in ignition, everything comes on... but no crank..

Lights / interior / dashboard.. all working fine.

I jumpered the battery from another car and no joy as well.

Display says i have 12.2 volts to my disposal..

So tomorrow morning (too dark now) i wil check the PRND123 switch, any suggestions on it's exact location and any hints on how to bypass it?

If that's not giving any joy, any other tips i should look at first?



p.s. no codes stored other then s063 (right rear sensor)

If you are in complete control..... you are not going fast enough....

Ok, small update.

Couldn't just leave it of course and started messing around again.

After shifting it endlessly in all kinds of P's N's and D's etc. it still wouldn't start.

After i started turning the ignition on and off and everytime i turned it on i cranked it as well just to listen at the sounds the car made.

When i was ready to give up i gave it one last shot and it started!!!! ;)


Seems to be ok now.. switched it off and started it again.. all fine..

it does however show that something is not right.. any suggestions?

I would guess maybe an ignition switch, but don't quote me on that.
