Car cuts when it is on high speed 120km/h and above then when you step on the brake it cuts off, but when you are driving at 100 km/h it is okay. It does not cut when you step on the brakes. We have cleaned the plugs and the throttle body but still it cuts off?
Do you
have the same problem?

That could be due to fuel starvation. Check the fuel pressure and replace the fuel filter if necessary.

The owner just told us that before he brought the car to us he took it for service from there the check engine started coming on. After they removed the intake manifold, even now it is on cannot get the sensor which has the problem.

Mileage is above 5,000 and trouble code I do not know because I do not have a diagnostic tool. I used to do it manually connecting E1 to TE1 but Nadia d4 does not have E1 and TE1.

Diagnostic tools can range from a few hundred to tens of thousands depending on what you require.

Try bridging terminal # 4 and # 12 of the diagnostic connector and check for blink codes.

Thanks for the reply. The front diagnostic noble does not have numbers. It has B, S1. Then the inner one does not have numbers.

The OBD-II diagnostic connector is a 16 pin connector without any numbering-s. With the wider part on top and the terminal facing, count from left to right, slot # 4. Use a jumper wire and connect this slot with the one directly below it. Turn ignition switch on and note if the check light flashes. Others such as ABS, SRS etc, might start to blink as well.

That is the knock sensor fault. Quite common for it to fail.

Check the wire connections and if they are good, have the knock sensor replaced and retest.
