Hi there, my SMAX is 21 months old and in Feb 11 I had trouble starting it all of a sudden. Cold start but garaged overnight, it cranked 10-15 times before eventually firing and starting, this also happened when warm and at random times over the following 2 weeks.
It went into a Ford Dealer who found no fault on the computer and could help no further.
In March one morning, it happened again from cold start but garaged, 15 cranks then it started. Parked it for 2 hours, same again 10-15 cranks before starting, then again late that evening and the following morning, 15 cranks again then started.
Once again, its in the garage and still no luck finding the fault, and its not played up at all for them!
Please help/advise. Could it be the crank shaft sensor, but if that is the problem why wouldn't it register on the computer?
