Had a family emergency an hour away. We drove the s60 and it was great, as it has been for over the last 8 years. It was about 3 am before we finally returned home and the car was really low on fuel.
The next morning the car did not start. Figuring it was out of gas, my son went and got a gallon in a small filler and we added it. Nothing. Cranks but will not start.
I pulled out the VIDA laptop, hooked it up and see a signal to a fuel pump when I crank (on). I see the nominal rate of pressure as 480 kpa and my reading fluctuates (jumpy) around 80 to 90, but just figured with the car not started it was low. Went to the rail. Added a rag to prevent any spray, and pressed on the schrader valve. Nothing.
We drove to the eastern shore in the VR because we needed to get there to help (like the family emergency was going to improve 3 hours away ).
When I got there, ScottishBrick got me excited to think it may be IMM related and simply do a hard reset. This morning I removed both terminal cables and held them together for a solid 3 minutes. Reattached both tightly and cranked it. Nothing.
I don't think the fuel filter is that old and it would have to be a full blockage to prevent ANYTHING from coming through to the rail.
If the fuel pump shows as on when I crank, what else could it be? Please help suggest things that won't be too difficult to do. I'm game before I send this to the indy nearly 40 miles away. I know we're all mostly in the same boat: I am down a LOT of money right now due to deferred bonuses, and every cent helps.
