Mein Auto: 1990 750
1990 750 help

Just bought a 1990 750 from a police aucion. It wont start...will crank, but no fuel. It will start if I spray carb cleaner in the intake.

Did some searching and found that there is a code that could disable the engine?? It says CODE on the display beside the stereo. Is this what is keeping the car from starting??? If so how do I reset the code. I have no idea what the code is.

If this is not it is there a fuel cutoff switch somewhere. I checked the fuses, and one for the fuel pump was blown, replaced it, but it still wont start.

Thanks
Brian in TX

Ok I have power at the fuse for each pump. I pulled the hose from the intake, and no fuel when I crank. So it must be the pump or a pump cut off switch. Any help??
Thanks
Brian

You are on the wrong thread, this thread is for the new body style E65 (2002-current), sorry, I can not be of much help as I am not familiar with your model
