New Frontera Owner having issue with car starting

Postby Frontyboo on Thu Oct 04, 2018 9:01 pm

Hi everyone,

I have a 2.5 TDS transglobe 5 door. I bought it recently, first major 4x4.
I am having issues starting when engine is cold or cooling down. I have replaced the glow plugs, still no luck.
The orange light next to the glow light, l think’ engine management light, flashes when turn key and won’t start! After several attempts turning on and off the light goes steady for 3seconds and goes out. Wolla car starts! The period of car starting is less and less each day. Any help would be appreciated?

Thanks

The flashing light is the immobiliser warning if it is flashing the engine will not start, try taking the key out and reinserting between attempts as well as this may help. There is a coil around the ignition barrel as far as i am aware, use the search bar and you should find a solution.
