  1. Thanks, will have a hunt for OCD locations. Let me know how everything is running once you can. πŸ˜€
  2. Thanks mate, all good with Jabba I assume?
  3. Evening all, Any general recommendations on places that can complete supercharger rebuilds apart from JabbaSport? Original supercharger seems to have been installed by JabbaSport in my G60 and then looking at the paperwork was serviced a number of years ago by G werks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Finally some traction today.... New ECU installed and the car has fired up into life!! Due to the weather couldn't keep it running for long but there is life ...... a bit of white smoke which we will need to look into however we have progress... πŸ˜‰
  5. Thanks mate, that looks very similar to the diagram I have from the Bentley, this is specifically for the Corrado PG engine. I merged 2 of the diagrams together to show the entire connectivity to and from the ECU.
  6. Thank you Gerard, your help is much appreciated. Will drop you a message if need be, have a great weekend.
  7. Thats Epic, yes what I was looking for. Just helps with further troubleshooting. The one I saw on the other forum also direction of signal etc but this will do. Do you have the whole book ? πŸ˜‰
  8. All, By chance does anyone have any details from Autodata or equivalent showing the G60 Digifant ECU connector pin-out? Basically a breakdown of which pins go to which sensors indicating which values should be seen for the sensor in question. More importantly it can also show the direction of travel for the signal i.e. ECU to sensor or Sensor to ECU. I have an example of a print out for a Polo G40 from a different forum but was not sure I was allowed to share the screenshots.
  9. Thanks for the details. I have managed to source an ECU which should arrive by the weekend. No promise that the ECU itself will be "perfect" as it is used but definitely worth a shot at this stage. Failing that I may require a trip to see the gents at Corrado Graveyard. Fun and games πŸ™‚
  10. Car has been sitting for years but that doesnt explain how it could have failed after all this time... I can only but try πŸ™‚ Does the G60 have an ignition amplifier?
  11. Thanks for the input Dox. Ideal situation would be me testing a working ecu which I can get my hands on lol. I may have to get my current tested or find a used one which I can test before purchase [emoji30] Power to the hall sensor isn’t the old pin not getting power, there are yet other pins also. Any spare G60 ecus going around ? [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Correct, I can double check again but I only got voltage on the below pins on the ECU when tested the other day. pin 1 (Starter power) pin 3 (Fuel Pump Relay) pin 12 (Injector Power) pin 14 (Power from Control Unit Relay) pin 22 (Idle stabilizer valve) pin 25 (To Ignition Coil) Was just checking Bentley and on testing I barely got over 11 mv ... which currently points to ECU. Continuity checks ok on pins 1 and 2 of harness also.
  13. I have 12v power at the below ECU pins: Check pin 1 on ECU for 12v at ignition - Yes (Starter power) Check pin 3 on ECU for 12v at ignition - Yes (Fuel Pump Relay) Check pin 12 on ECU for 12v at ignition - Yes (Injector Power) Check pin 14 on ECU for 12v - Yes (Power from Control Unit Relay) Check pin 22 on ECU for 12v at ignition - Yes (Idle stabilizer valve) Check pin 25 on ECU for 12v - Yes (To Ignition Coil) Based on the below, my hunch is power in from the ign sw to the ECU is via pin 1: I hope I'm on the right track!!
  14. Just a thought, does the Ignition Switch also play a part in the issues I have faced so far? That has not been replaced. Accessories do turn on at ignition aswell as the warning lights but I assume that is power directly from the battery. Does the ignition switch also send a signal to the ECU for it to fire up the Coil?
  15. Hey Matt, Dizzy is spinning but that's about it in terms of checking as there is no spark I need to be sure the Ignition coil is generating that and therefore being present at the end of the King HT lead. Hi Dox, Yes there is an aftermarket Toad immobiliser. Have tested with it enabled and there is no tickover, once disabled the car does crank so I think we are ok on that front πŸ™‚ In addition to yesterday I swapped over the HT leads which was something I was going to do anyway. Also managed to source a new Ignition Coil for testing but still the same issue. My worry is that the Hall sensor not getting power has something todo with this whole palava!! Looking at the wiring diagrams, the hall sensor obtains power from the ECU at pin 8 but I am seeing nothing, also checked the ground which seems ok. I have also looked at the ECU, no obvious defects I can see but I am not pro. Any ideas welcomed?
  16. Ok so the story so far………………. New Battery (Bosch S5) New Fuel Pump including sender unit Siphoned out all old fuel Clean up of fuel tank New fuel (20 litres) New Spark plugs (Bosch Super Plus) + fogging oil applied to all cylinders Fuel Pump relay connector: Check pin 30 - Constant 12v present Check pin 87 - Signal working towards Fuel Pump when bridged via 30 Check pin 86 - 12v present upon ignition Check pin 85 - "- 0v" reading present upon cranking, which I understand is correct? Fuel Pump Relay New relay installed Proceeded to turn the car but still no explicit/loud sounds of the Fuel pump priming however fuel is being carried upon cranking of the engine, tested via checking fuel line to injectors. Distributor/Spark Plugs Is spark present at spark plugs - No Is spark present on King lead from Ignition coil - No Ignition Coil Removed Ignition coil and correct ohms present when testing with multi meter. Primary coil 0.6 Ohms (must be 0.5 to 0.7 Ohms according to Bentley) - Correct Secondary coil 3600 Ohms (must be 3000 to 4000 Ohms according to Bentley) - Correct Check continuity towards Ignition coil (Green wire) from ECU (Pin 25) - Yes Check voltage to Ignition coil, should be 12v - Yes From this I gather the Ignition coil is "functioning". Hall Sensor Harness Check continuity towards Hall sensor harness (Red/Black) from ECU (Pin 😎 - Yes Check continuity towards Hall sensor harness (Green/White) from ECU (Pin 18)- Yes Check voltage to Hall sender harness upon ignition, should be 12v - No Pin 1 = Ground Pin 2 = Should be under 12v and fluctuate towards 0 when cranking Pin 3 = 12v - No ECU relay connector: Check pin 30 for 12v - Yes Check pin 86 for 12v at Ignition - Yes Check pin 87 for Voltage? Yes on ignition ECU Relay: Connect pin 85 to negative - Yes Connect pin 86 to positive - Yes Does it click, is coil energizing? - Yes If Yes, Connect 85 to negative Connect 86 to positive Check continuity over 30 and 87 with Multi meter - Working ECU Check pin 1 on ECU for 12v at ignition - Yes (Starter power) Check pin 3 on ECU for 12v at ignition - Yes (Fuel Pump Relay) Check pin 12 on ECU for 12v at ignition - Yes (Injector Power) Check pin 14 on ECU for 12v - Yes (Power from Control Unit Relay) Check pin 22 on ECU for 12v at ignition - Yes (Idle stabilizer valve) Check pin 25 on ECU for 12v - Yes (To Ignition Coil) Fuel Pump Relay: New relay installed, Continuity present, Voltage present. Pump still not priming Ignition Coil: Continuity present, Voltage present. Hall sender harness: Continuity present, no Voltage present - should this be coming from the ECU? ECU relay: Working as far as I can see but will change for a new one as it was already on order and in the post. ECU: All checked pins receive inbound voltage, however I have no further points of reference to check whether the ECU is distributing the signal to the various components. In addition still no Tachometer readings along with fuel on dash. Does all this point to a faulty ECU? 😐 Any suggestions or corrections welcomed Kr Dee
  17. Thanks Shaun, my first ever dip into the VW world but hey this is what's it about...learning as you try and fix in my case πŸ˜‰
  18. Thanks Matt, any feedback will be much appreciated. Just in the middle of writing up the bits that myself and my cousin have completed .... Not looking good ..yet 😁
  19. Evening all… Completely new to the VW scene however I finally managed to pick up a long outstanding 92 plate G60 a few weeks ago. It has not seen the light of day for around 12 years at least so this is going to be a fun ride. Lots of history around the car so it may well be one that someone may have spotted it a number of years ago in the edition38 scene. The list of work has begun but have already hit a few bumps along the road so I am sure I will be frequently posting my woes and questions… apologies in advanced πŸ˜€ Regards Dee
