I have a tec 2 electromotive ignition on a Ford Fiesta. I bought the car in Sept. 07 and drove it around for about a hundred miles. I went to drive it and would not start. I have checked all the wiring, went direct to the bat. where it required a full 12 v. I grounded the places that needed a ground, checked all the harness for continuity, changed the pickup sensor with one from electromotive. I have also checked all the sensors but it will not start. Let me say that it actually has started. One time after the initial failure to start I sat in the seat and just for grins attempted to start it, and lo!! it started. Drove it for a few miles and parked it. Next morning, no start. It was then that I checked it completely. After I replaced the pickup sensor, I was able to get a few revs where it did start for about a second or two. It did that twice, but I haven't been able to start it since.
It sounds to me as if there is an intermittent connection somewhere in the circuit. I am baffled with it. Is there anyone that may be able to give me a few pointers as to what else to look for?
