Started getting error code p1531, then the injector coils started going one after the other. After replacing them drove it once for about a mile. After switching it off it wouldn't start again. There are no error codes

Accelerator pedal Invalid test - P1531, how did you fix that?

Going? The injector coils failed? How did you test them?

Did you fix the fault that damaged 4 injector coils before fitting 4 more injectors? If not, you could well have 4 more damaged injector coils :cry:

This is interesting, what are you using to get the codes?

What year and what mileage is your C3?

I guess it turns over, but won't fire. Is this correct?
