No offence taken or given.
I am still a little confused over it driving after the wash and then no start now.
Disconnected battery, no EML code now? However no start.
Checked fuel rail (@ shraeder valve). No high pressure spray just a dribble there with key in the No 2 position and trying to start it turns over but no significant pressure in the rail at all. Checked relay, light green one and relay checks out ok. Checked all fuses and these are ok. Is this a fuel pump problem? I have spark.
In our old E36 320i you can hear the fuel pump priming the system. In this one, only the stepper motor on the black box (DISA)on the side of the intake manifold makes a buzzing sound even for a short time after turning the key off.
Assuming it could be the fuel pump shouldn't there be a code for that failure.
Could the wife (yep it's her fault now, Lol) have set off the alarm/immobilizer system some how?
This car is RHD if that makes any difference.
