Motor was running like a dream, today it's turns over but won't start. RAC guy said no power is reaching the coils. 291k

Anyone got any ideas? I don't want to hand the RAC $$$$

Yeah thanks Lex, what do you think an auto sparky to fit it. Is it a big job? I'm not very mechanically minded.

I meant to say how much would an auto sparky charge approximately.

Anywhere between $80 and $140 an hour and may have a minimum charge.

If the A/E supplied the part it will be roughly $220 plus what ever he wants in labor.

It was the DFI causing the issue ,with that and a new set of coils and a very cluey mobile auto sparky . The cost was $325 and he came to me and went and sourced the parts came back and 10mins later she's running like a dream again :)
