Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, How are you?I'm Shabaz, one of the automotive experts. I will be happy to assist you today. Hopefully we can get this resolved quickly.
You will be prompted for a phone call by the automated system, you can accept this if you wish to speak to me, otherwise we can continue our conversation on the message thread.
Have you had the van scanned for fault codes? There will be engine related fault codes stored because the powertrain light is on.
It should have a fault code which begins with 'P'. That fault code description can be applied to different systems.
Sorry I'm unable to take calls at the moment.
There is most likely a break in a wire or the battery is weak and not sending enough voltage to the ECU. If you backprobe one of the sensors on the 5V ref circuit and check to see if you have 5v using a multimeter. You can backprobe the MAF/MAP/fuel pressure sensor/ fuel pressure regulator/throttle body. The easiest would be the MAF/MAP sensor, if it's showing below 5v, start unplugging each sensor on the 5V ref circuit and see if the reference reading jumps back to 5v when unplugging any sensor.
You need to make sure that your battery is good before doing this test because this issue is also related to a weak battery as stated earlier.
It has a high pressure fuel pump. You can try spraying easy-start into the intake pipe and see if that starts the engine. If it does start or attempt to start, you will most likely have a fuel problem. Another possible issue is the ignition switch, which is problematic on the mk7 transits, i've repaired a non-starter and one which continued to run with the key removed in the past so, I wouldn't rule out a faulty ignition switch.
I wouldn't advise doing that because there's more than 150bar of pressure when cranking. What you need to check, is the fuel rail pressure (on OBD scan tool) when cranking.
Also, disconnect the pcv connector and check if there is 5v on the metering valve connector, and also do this test the other way around too. One of these components may be causing an issue on the 5v circuit.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you're satisfied with my assistance, your feedback is appreciated.
