I have a 2002 cambiocorsa. The other day we drove it around town for a little while. When the engine was cut off we heard a whining noise coming from the gearbox. We have never heard this before. This noise lasted about 10 minutes. Now the car won't start at all, and the check engine light is on. Luckily the car was in our garage at the time. Any ideas as to what may have caused this?

Sounds like the F1 pump relay was stuck open and fried the pump. You probably need a new F1 pump now.

Just for grins, it might be worth trying a new relay - just in case the pump didn't burn and it's JUST the relay... could be stuck open, for example, instead of stuck closed (although, admittedly, unlikely - if this is the problem).

35 bucks to try it, so what the hell - right? Pull the relay & bring it to Autozone or Pep Boys & they should both have a comparable replacement.

It would be a good idea to invest in an OBD reader, it should give you the error codes and you will get a more accurate description of whats wrong.
