    Just had a look at Rave and the wokshop manual lists symptoms as
    1. Engine cranks but fails to start
    2. Engine Malfunction light (MIL) stays on all the time
    3. Engine misfire, or it runs roughly or stalls if sensor incorrectly fitted

    Sensor has no backup strategy and it it fails, engine will stop running and not start.

    Cheers!
