Question type: Maintenance & Repair

They did a major service on my car but now it
doesn't want to idle, it swings, start and then
immediately shut off like it ran out of fuel, I have  
checked the fuel system it fine, checked all the
sensor they're also fine. What I didn't check is the
ECU and the wiring but the fuse they all fine

Have you checked that the Impact switch on the left side under the dash is pressed in to the 'Click' position ?

Today I brought a new impact switch coz I couldn't detect the old 1 was fine or not... unfortunately it still does the same thing


Check the relays are correctly installed, and that the terminals they are fitted into are not being pushed through the bottom of the junction box. It might be best it you have a reputable mechanic or auto electrician look at you vehicle.
