Lupo 1.0 Not starting - Help!

Recommended Posts

Wondering if somebody might be able to help point me in the right direction of where to start with diagnosing why my Lupo 1.0 wont start. Video here:


Sparkplugs have been changed within last few months. Has got enough fuel. The coolant was a little low so I topped that up. I used a scan tool to check and it came up with following:



It also showed EGR - Not Ready on the scan tool. Wondering if this could be something to do with it.


Any advice at all would be much appreciated!

I'd be inclined to agree with Matty, check your battery voltage.

Yeah, looks like battery connections aren't secure or you need a new battery. Should be over 12.3V (empty) or about 12.8V fully charged.

Oh yeah, good call.  If the voltage is ok, take the leads off the battery and give the terminals a good scrub with a wire brush.  A previous car of mine would do similar to yours when trying to crank, was a bad battery contact
