Well, I am in need of some advice. I am only moderately mechanically minded so I feel that I have checked the things that I know how to check, and could use some pointers in the right directions.
I am getting this audible electric/clicking sound coming from the ignition/dash area when attempting to start. This video was taken immediately after installing a new charged battery with 12.7v measured, which I installed because this was happening and I had low voltage. I read in a lot of the forums here that replacing the battery was almost always the fix for the ER-1 code.
I can hear the fuel pump which starts after every attempt to start, and I noticed is that the temperature on the display spikes when trying to start. Not sure if that means anything.
I don’t hear the fuel pump after I turn the start switch to on, only after trying to start. I don’t get any headlights when I put the key into on, but can’t remember if that is normal or not! I also don’t get lights if I try to turn on the highbeam with key in on position.
I tried using contact cleaner on a bunch of different connections including the ECU. I checked all fuses which seemed in spec.
I did some rolling around to try and start to no avail, and got another code (Error 12) which is crankshaft position sensor. Maybe this makes sense as I wouldn’t be getting spark/ignition as the sensor isn’t sure when/where to spark.
I’m not really sure if anyone is familiar with this issue that I am having, as I haven’t heard anyone describe the sound that I am getting.
Any help is greatly appreciated and I look forward to resolving this issue!
