    Hi all
    got a 306 1.9 D T reg 1999 estate, the engine had to be changed so
    the the original timimg pump was also changed, because it was a
    transponder type.
    The problem is the car wont even turn over the light work and
    everything but no engine. There is no live feed even to the starter
    when the key is turned. Could the ECU be locked or something.

    cheers for any help or any suggestions

  2. On the principle that you should always go for the simple things first,
    check that the engine earth lead is connected.

    Hi ALL
    In regard to the email, the earth strap is on and what I meant to say
    was that there is a current going to the starter but when the key is
    turned there doesnt appear to be a signal sent to the starter.

    I may be way off target here but it is worth a try. Lift the rear seat
    forward and put your hand up under the centre of the back of the seat. You
    should feel two connectors there disconnect them then reconnect and if your
    car isn't starting because it is immobilsed then this should re-mobilise

    I'll have a check when I go home this weekend.
    Is that the back seat ie the folding seats, I didnt think any
    connectors were there. Also I couldnt find the ECU is that located
    inside the cars, because 2000 onwards the ecu's are in the engine bay
    and on this 99 model I cant find it do you know hwere it is located?

    I could have made that a bit clearer. Pull up the base of the back seat as
    if you are going to fold down the back seat flat. Now with the `back ` of
    the seat still in position put your hand under the bottom of the `back` in
    the centre and push your hand up. You will find a hollow area and there
    will be two connectors in there. Disconnect and reconnect to reset

    As clear as mud!

    I hope after all of that it is of use.

    The box isn't there - merely two connectors - though my 306 is a pre 1997
    model - the after 97 models could well be different. FYI in the pre 97
    models the box is located inside the offside rear wing in the 3 door model
    and under the drivers seat in the 5 door model.

    Had a look at the back seats and couldnt find nothing, if there were
    any wires there would be wires going out of the seats aswell.
    I tried looking in the rear quarter panels (estate) aswell, couldnt
    find no alarm box. Under neath the drivers seat is only a connector to
    the seat belt tensioner. Or do I need to look under the carpet?

    The damn thing wont even crank !!
