95 petrol Pajero - starts fine cold, but won't start warm?!

Unread post by Westaussie4wheel » January 8th, 2016, 11:50 am

Ok, so my 95 Pajero, starts fine when cold, after heating up and turning her off, she won't start again until completely cooled down, I'm also attaching a photo of the engine fuse box and wondering if someone could tell me what I should have. Note I have removed the battery. Any help would be greatly appreciated


*update* so I left the battery out for the day and when I put everything back in its starting fine hot or cold. So I'm leaning towards a faulty ecu? Any thoughts please?

Also does disconnecting the battery reset the ecu temporarily?

Haven't got any replies in a few weeks which is disappointing. So after removing the battery for a while then reconnecting it, I have been able to start it hot or cold, but after I get below half a tank of petrol it starts playing up again, so I'm thinking maybe a sensor or something?

I'd check out the fuel pump in the tank and lines if it starts giving trouble when it gets below 1/2 a tank
