my holden vx cranks but wont start had crank angle sensor changed and it went ok for upto 2 weeks now it's doing the same thing after i changed the switch panel for the windows
Hi Perry, I see that you've done all you can to try and fix the "crank and won't start" problem on your vx Commodore. As they say, It could mean your engine is having trouble producing a spark, getting fuel, or getting compression. They say most common causes are in the ignition (for example, a bad ignition coil) or fuel system (for example, a clogged fuel filter) or a mechanical fault ( for example, a leaking valve), or faulty components in other systems. best advice, get it checked with your trusted mechanic dealer.
The most overlooked thing in cars is cleaning the throttle body , why you even replaced crank angle sensor if its not throwing a code is anyones guess , im an automotive technician , i have come across that many dirty throttle bodys in this country with people having zero clue that they have to be cleaned at least once a year , and throttle bodys can cause a no start issue and continuos cranking with car seeming to want to start but does not , THROTTLE BODY PAL !
How to tell if I have a genuine holden vx commodore s pak
Call your Holden dealer. Quote them the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) from the lower left of the windscreen. The dealer will tell you what you've got.
Basically the S pak had steering wheel controls, Air Conditioning, power windows, lower (FE2) suspension, mag wheels (16 inch 5 spoke with wider low-profile tyres), body kit including rear spoiler (smaller than the SS spoiler), no high-level brake light in the rear window - there's an LED one in the spoiler), bigger diameter front stabiliser bar, two black plastic imitation vents in the front spoiler where there was fog lights on the SS, Special seat fabric with a stylised "S" on the base. a limited range of body colours (black, red, white, that horrible metallic yellow. There were some "Monaro" commemorative models produced, in the series one only. They were produced in the Monaro-only colours, metallic blue, metallic green, tiger mica and of course the Devil Yellow. There was only 6 cars of each colour produced. All S paks had body coloured door handles on the outside.

Hi! I have a VX Calais. First off my air bag light stays on, second thing is when driving during the day the ABS is fine, as soon as I put my headlights on the abs lights up until I put the brakes on. As soon as I take the brakes off the light comes back on!
With my ignition on and motor not running I have a ticking noise from the top back of the motor I think it has something to do with the fuel line that goes into the motor
Hi difficult to diagnose without hearing BUT read through the following threads ... it may help ...
Hi Lister. You said engine NOT running. Does it make the sound just when you turn the ignition on, then go away?
If so, its the idle air control motor opening the throttle ready for you to start it.
If not, possibly something loose allowing fuel pump pulsations to move the fuel hoses? Does it eventually stop? The fuel pump starts when you turn the ignition on the will stop unless you start the engine.
