Engine cranking, not starting, I'm possibly dumb.
So this morning I replaced the gear surround/centre cubby trim with a new one and now the car isn't starting at all.
It turns over strongly but just doesn't make any attempt at starting.
I also had to remove the centre console (cup holder and centre storage bin) to get the gear surround out.
Here's the steps i took:
1. removed the centre storage bin/cup holder
2. unplugged the heated seat and cigar lighter plugs
3. removed the trim from under the steering wheel
4. pulled the gear surround trim from out of the car
5. replaced the trims
6. attempted to start the car
I thought at first it was the battery just being flat, having enough charge to crank the engine but not enough to create a sufficient spark for a cold start.
My neighbour gave me a jump start with his Polo. still no dice. Cranking but not starting.
I know Civics of my year (2006) have an issue with wiping the immobiliser if trying to jump the car with the key in the ignition. I made sure to have the keys out the car while putting the jumper leads on and the green key on the dash disappears immediately on putting the key into the on position so i don't think it's that again because I've done it before and had to have the car sent to Honda for a £58 re-write.
Any ideas? Also any idea where the fuel pump fuse is?
