    Hi all, had to do a compression test which of course requires disconnecting the stop solenoid, now the car wont start, had this before years ago but i cannot remember what i did to get it going, any help appreciated, cheers.

    Reconnect the stop solenoid, check to see if you have power to it and that it clicks when powered.

    Wait until theabs pump stops or hold the solinoid and see if you feel it click.

    There was a post on here about removing the internals from the solinoid but this is NOT recommended @brianp38dse posted a link for a new replacement solenoid that you won't need a mortgage for.

    The emergency stop reset is behind the driver's kick panel. Or it might have lost sync.

    Found out why it wouldn't start, the glow plug fuse (next to the ecu) had blown :D.
