X20XEV rodent damage
« on: May 22, 2022, 20:31:05 PM »
Hi all,

My X20XEV has been standing outside for a while due to moving house. Until it was parked it was driving just fine. When I wanted to start it again, it would not do it and called the engine check light.

Upon opening the lid I could see that a rodent got to some of the cabling. One spark plug lead was bitten through and the insulation on the crankshaft sensor was eaten away at several locations  >:(

Reading the error code, it did give a 19 so changed the crankshaft sensor and the spark plug lead.
After that, the engine still would not start and also threw even more error codes... 71, and 73. I thought maybe dodgy crankshaft sensor, so changed it to another one, but to no avail... it also additionally threw a camshaft sensor failure.

It kind of feels the whole system got buggered... though wondering if it is another short somewhere caused by that damn rodent. Does anybody have any clue where to start looking?
