HELP!!! Car died and won't start back
I have a friend with an 04 STI with UTEC....
he just got the car and it ran fine overall below 4500rpm, but over that, it would get boost cut because of a broken vacuum line.....
yesterday, he fixed the broken vacuum line and found the air intake tube had a small leak in it...
got another air intake tube for the turbo...
started it right up and ran great....
then, it just died....
he went to restart it and it has fuel pressure , but the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT flashes SUPER FAST....
and it won't start....
he also said that he doesn't smell any gas at all and that it doesn't even try to start now.
any tips or things to check???
I told him to check his connectors and reconnect them....
I even sent him the link to the utec software to download into his laptop.... but he hasn't downloaded it yet....
does the UTEC show codes through the stock computer aldl port or can you hook into it with a laptop to bring up the codes once the software has been downloaded??
I have a motec so I am kinda lost with this stock-piggyback stuff...
just trying to help my friend out.
Thanks for all the help in advance!!!

If the CEL is flashing super fast the UTEC is in security mode. Check your switch position and make sure you didn't bump it into security mode.
