If your not far from each other then it would be worth plugging it in and seeing if it fires up, it will rule out the wiring then.

Hello everybody!

Im back and the car still doesnt work, the old ecu had been opened before and looked quite a bad job so i couldnt rule this out as a faulty item.

I bought a K maps ECU with the imob delete but it has made no difference? the MG 5as just clicks in the exact same pattern as it did before and if the rover 5as is installed it doesnt make any noise but it doesnt allow cranking or fuel pump either...

I have taken the loom out 3 times and re fitted as per the labels with no sucess, JackJewell is coming up later to fit the loom incase im doing something retarded.

Does anyone else have any suggestions?

When you say immobiliser delete, this means the unit then is a stand alone item. It should not need any 5AS or fob to start.

This being the case, do the ignition lights show on the dash? When the key is turned to starter, do the dash lights stay on? Does the IACV click? If not then you have missed something quite important.

IACV clicks as expected with ignition on, didnt even bother wiring up the dash lights other than the first time.

That will be the issue then. I'm sure the dash is included in the circuits.

Just so you can double check, the IACV should actually sound like a smooth whine rather than clicking, if it clicks then Itíll probably be stuck.
If the 5AS has been deleted on the ECU then it shouldnít look for it at all and you should be able to just unplug it altogether, my MEMS2 ECU had the 5AS deleted and I never had it included at all, I literally only used the engine loom as the MEMS2 didnít require the clocks.
Be worth plugging in the clocks as mentioned and seeing what happens.

Right,
Jackjewell came up and other than snapping the fuel rail the ham fisted baffoon he got it going.
It turns out the fuel pump needs the fuel pump relay to function..., it wont start with a flat battery..., and the starter needed shorting. (gazward has provided a solution to this already).


So this weekend i will try to get into garage and get everything bolted up correctly rather than hashed together and get closer to its first drive.

Cheers for all your help.

Glad you got it running, great isnt it?

Yes the fuel pump needs the relay!

The only thing on the dash you need is the battery light or the alternator wont charge, I ran my mgzr with no dash plugged in at all at one point.

The multi function relay runs the fuel pump, starter solenoid, lambda and the ECU.
Itís a pretty big unit to forget
