no 4ws light will 3 things ... the bulb has blown, check it, the 4ws ecu is not plugged in or has power, check that, its in the boot, black box. and finally the problem is not electronic, possibly meaning the broken top mounts are affecting it, you should get these fixed anyway if they are severly broken, as when you jack the rear of the car up, the wheels will stay in the floor, strut and all ...
ok .. well you need to check you have spark, pull a plug out, connect it to its lead, rest it on the engine and have someone crank the car or watch the plug and see if it sparks. If its sparking, you then need to check fuel.
And you deffinately did nothing other than unplug a black box in the boot ?
The fuse to check is the pink ENG/INJ in the box in the engine bay.
Ok, i thkn i know which black box you found, and was it just below or next to the trunk catch ? if so thats the rear light cluster check control box. The 4WS control box lives in the left hand well behind the wheel arch or on that side inner wing. Thats where you need to check, and also check for any voltages on the pins of the wiring loom.
Yeah I know I found it when I was grounding my amp a while back but never knew what it was, but that unit in the picture is the thing that I unplugged. I hope that I didn't mess that up somehow and my mechanic is wrong about it being the distributor that is causing no spark.
Ok well, as long as you have plugged that back up correctly, is shoud be okay, try reseating the plugs to it, as everything was fine before you removed it. Does the Check Engine light go out when yo are trying to start it ? it should come on at ignition to on and the dash shows all the check bulbs and then they go out apart from oil and battery, does the check engine light go out ?
Nope I put my car on and when I try to start it it stays on, so it's weird. I kept reseating the plugs but still no luck. So I hope it is the distributor I hope my mechanic doesn't fix it and then it still won't start. That'd seriously suck. If there was a problem with the ECU the check engine light wouldn't go on while trying to turn am I correct?
