Clio 52 plate 1.5 Dci will not start.

Hi all,

Had a problem with my Clio, vehicle ahead of me was slipping on a hill, so I had to decellerate briskly, I applied the brake, then after I had slowed some I let the engine braking take over. Suddenly the car sounded like a bag of spanners, I'm not sure if it was mechanical or fuel related, so I pulled over and stopped the engine.

I tried to start the engine again but although it would crank over it would not start.

I checked the timing, and it was fine. Replaced the belt anyway since it was due.

I was experiencing problems with the fuel pump previously, please see my thread here. So I replaced this with new, but the car still will not start.

There are no fault codes logged in the ECU . When I turn the key on, I see the glow plugs light come on, then go out after a second, I see the small red circular immobiliser come on and then go out, I see the STOP light in the top left corner of the light cluster come on and stay on permamently.

I have checked the glow plug relay and it's working correctly. I have checked all the relays in the fuse box and they're fine.

The Crankshaft sensor/ TDC sensor is reporting a higher than normal impedance of 670 Ohms, and two of the glowplugs appear to be reading abnormal impedences, but since the glowplug light comes on and goes off I doubt this would cause the car not to start? Since the car was running roughly until I switched it off, can anyone advise what it could be, or what else I can check?

I have read possibly the EGR valve or sensor issue could cause this? Can someone tell me a little about this?

I've also read the camshaft sensor can cause this, where is this located?

Does anyone know what the impedance of the high-pressure fuel pump timing sensor should be, it is located on the lower timing belt cover?

A year ago I had to replace the earth leads to each of my front fog lights to get them working, but the car has ran fine for some time since doing this, can anyone tell me where the earth points on the car are so I can check them all?

Thanks for any information.

Get a compression test before going any further.

Re: Clio 52 plate 1.5 Dci will not start.

theres 5 different engine codes for these the fuel inerta cut off switch on some of these feed the voltage via this switch to engine control relay at relay base terminal 1 Try starting using aerosol can of brake cleaner sprayed lightly into air intake The crankshaft sensor ohms reading should be between
700-880 can you post engine code Hth Regards Mickeybo

Re: Clio 52 plate 1.5 Dci will not start.

Hi there, thanks for the information so far, I've not had a chance to check the engine code yet but will this evening, can you confirm that the impedance of the Crank Position/ TDC sensor should be between 700-800 Ohms for the diesel Dci 1.5?

The Haynes manual section 4a suggests that the TDC sensors are between 200-280 Ohms, however section 4a refers to petrol engines, section 4b of the manual deals with diesel engines and they do not list the TDC sensor impedance in section 4b.

Re: Clio 52 plate 1.5 Dci will not start.

Hi there, the engine is a K9K-704 or a K9K-710 I can't be sure, it's the 80bhp variant.

Clio Extreme 1.5 DCi 8v 80bhp with Delphi common rail high pressure diesel injection.

Does the stop light remaining on represent anything in particular? I am not able to detect a fault code with my OBD-II reader.
