When cranking the engine, the computer box registers a minimum cranking speed thresh hold. A minimun cranking speed is normally about 250 RPM. Below that there will be no spark or injection. If the engine is flooded, Put wide open throttle and then crank the engine. By having wide open throttle the injectors will switch off and should allow the engine to start. Check also for the starter cranking speed.

Thanks I will do that tomorrow morning, I will give you the feed back after I'm done


I had the exact same problem. The mechanic told me there is a break in the loom.Never had this problem before.Just after I really ran out of fuel half a meter from the pump.Stupid I know. The next morning my oil light starting appearing if I drive under 3000rpm and when I got on the highway I just heard this moerse rattling sound from the engine and the motor switched off.After, waiting for I few mins I got the motor cranked ,but sounded dry like sand is inside it.(think I bend a valve)
