Puma 1.7 won't start-Any advice please

Checked battery voltage when turning over and the battery despite showing 12.6v wasn't cranking enough. Sometimes the voltage is OK, but current needed is not there. I had the same situation with my honda. It was giving 12.7V, but not turning the engine. Tester showed it had 120 Amps out of declare...

It won't turn over and when the key is in the third start position the needles don't run round the dials?
If that was the case, that was the sign of a flat battery. Is the battery OK?

I would recommend using the EHPAS from Toyota MR2, the later model. It is all in one unit with ECU incorporated and you get to keep the steering rack as it is. Check my thread for details on that

afaik it needs to re-perform the test to put the light out
Yes, you need to reach 20 kph for the system to perform self test and then it will put the light out if all is as it should be

ABS fault light

Yes, the system monitored that front wheels have been spinning, but the rears not. ABS does not know that the car was jacked up and so concludes that the rear sensors are potentially dead. Hence the warning light. Once you reach 20 kph speed, the ABS will trigger self test and erase the DTC and put ...

High revs on idle and when stopping.

THE PAS switch is normally open, I believe. Only when steering opened to max, it should close. So it is rather straight forward test. See with multimeter what is its state and them with wire short the connector pins to see if the engine revs rise a bit

Does this answer your question? The camcover is not flat, and the level is not 100% horizontal, and given the line of thought I would pursue and go for a roundish number, I'd call that inclination of 12 degrees....

Hope that helps

Drivers side brake pipe to servo broken how can I repair

The copper is not as strong as steel. And when ABS modul activates, pressure pulsations can get very strong. I guess that is the reason
