Do you have to post some number of posts(or something else) before being allowed to post in the model-specific sections ?

cms Yes.

Ground is conveniently at hand on 85.

Further info:
As I said,the red stripe relay is dead. Normally, this relay is will be activated in start or run.
Even though, the relay I now have is broken, it turns out I can fake the relay function, by opening the relay and using a plastic clip, when I am in Run(on).

Which got me...
EXACTLY NOWHERE.
Still no ignition....

The coil in a relay was dead !
This is a first for me.

It is the actual thread in the coil that is interrupted.
The diode is fine.

It was with the red stripe relay under the hood just by the ignition coil.

Bosch number is 0332014112.
The component is named "MOTRONIC RELAY WITH DIODE" with name S12b in the wiring diagram.

Regarding crank sensors...
Is the gap between the phonic wheel and the sensor important ?
The manual explicitly mentions 0.5 - 1 mm, but gives no way of adjusting this.
The OEM sensor I bought resulted in 0.2 mm, so I put a shim made of aluminum foil between
the sensor and the bracket to get it up to just over 0.5.

With key on do you get 12v in red stripe relay socket terminal 86 with pink wire from 15A F22 engine services fuse in G1 main fuse box?

cms That is just about what I did...
I remember, though, some info after pressing "Submit reply" that the post was subject to inspection
by a moderator.
It might be that, that is taking some time...

Alfisto Steve If you posted on 164 tab it should be there but you have only the two posts under this section showing so far.

Hope you have a copy of your 164 post as it may have bombed out for some reason,
