in the process of trying to find a fault with my VS V6 commodore, I've
noticed that the Ignition and EFI relays run rather hot. Is this
normal? I've never taken the time to check them before as usually the
engine is already hot and with the bonnet shut you would expect
everything to be warm.
The car originally stopped running, and wouldn't restart, even when
cold. I changed the DFI and coils with a spare assembly I had, but
there was no difference.
I ran a diagnostic and got a code 46 which suggested that the CAS was
faulty. I replaced that, but it still wouldn't start. It doesn't set
that code anymore though.
Now the car is at the point where it has stopped running a few times,
but I can't figure out why. I was wondering if somehow the relays
might be overheating and dropping out.
Has anyone had this sort of problem? The car is running now and
starting okay, but I am worried that it is going to stop dead
somewhere inconvenient and I'm not really looking forward to it.
