Hello guys,

I need some help as my 2002 Jimny won't start.
First problem was when the engine overheat after loosing all coolant/water while driving due to a unnoticed leak of the water pump.At that time after allowing the engine to cool+topped up radiator we drove it to a local dealer having to pull over and add water every 10min or so as it kept leaking.

The dealer did fix the fan but as they wouldn't have water pumps on hand had to drive it home(same way..it drove fine just needed to add water every 10-15min or so)

In the mean time the water pump got replaced (brought a mechanic home).However now although the engine turns won't start!I thought it may be the spark plugs therefor I replaced them with no results though.
Brought in an electrician (seemed experienced enough) ..did all sorts of testing , said the current actually doesn't reach the spark plugs but the battery is good, fuses are fine etc etc.He doesn't have a code reader but he's suggesting to replace the crankshaft angle sensor although not 100% sure that's the reason.

My questions in case someone wants to help:
Could this sensor be the reason?If not what else can cause this?

As I'm having hard time to find it around here(Metro Manila) , is there any way I can test the sensor see if still good?

Any advice is really appreciated,

Cheers,
Cris

Chris,

The crank angle sensor would be where I'd start. If that doesn't fix it I'd replace the ign coil/s. If its OBDII you should have a code stored in the ECM that will give you an idea of what the problem is. Even OBD1 or OBD0 will give you a code if the crank sensor has crapped out. The clicky start issue is an easy fix too if you haven't already fixed it. Just go to Autozone/Napa or whatever parts house you have nearby and buy a 30amp relay along with some wire and a fusable link capable of 30amps. You should be able to find a diagram on the net for that seeing how it's so common. I had the same problem on mine. I coulda forked out the cash for one of those kits but I'm cheap anb it was so easy I don't see why anyone would pay for that. Anyways hope this helps.

Yes it worked, it worked amazingly I have also made instructions for it on my new site DIYZuke. Since I found the instructions that came with it a little hard.

Thank you, V8Zuk.

Ok..Was able to buy the crankshaft sensor..After installing it still won't start.
The electrician will bring today and OBDll code reader.

Can anyone please advise on where to plug it?We couldn't see an obvious socket (with Diagnosis on the cover like on some Toyotas for instance)

My Jimny doesn't have the clicky start symptoms, it turns (almost) normally but won't start.There is no current reaching the spark plugs either.

We'll come back..

Cris
