Have you measured the spacing between the Crankshaft sensor and a pulse tooth? It s/b 0.55 +/- 0.2 mm.

If the gap is too large, it may explain the symptom. Since you have replaced the flywheel, this could be the problem.


Tye key battery has nothing to do with starting the engine; it's just for remote entry.
