After following the very good advice about cleaning the
sensor I still have a problem starting in damp conditions. Here are the symptoms:
1. Intermittently won't start in the morning
2. Once started and warm it will start for the rest of the day.
3. When trying to start it will not even attempt to turn over. (The AA man informs me that electrically there is no problem)
4. After about 15- 30 minutes it will finally get going.
After I cleaned the
sensor, which was covered in metal filaments, the engine started first time. This continued to happen for the rest of the weekend, including the following morning when it was and cold (-5 degree) but dry . I thought I had fixed the problem but on Monday morning, which was cold and damp, the starting problem was back! I can only concluded that the damp has a influence in some way?
I'm thinking of replacing the sensor but any advice on an alternative cause would be very helpfully?
