Can you diagnose this cut-out fault?

By autotech-nath on March 2, 2024

We have a library of free, multiple-choice assessments for you to use at your leisure. The brand-new ‘Test 17’ is a fuel pump case study involving a 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport. The vehicle is fitted with the 204DT 2.0L Diesel common rail engine controlled by a BOSCH MEDC17.9 ECU and is presented with a start and cut-out fault. It has been recovered for diagnosis and the roadside recovery agent has included an explanation of the symptoms as follows:

The vehicle runs for approximately 20 seconds and then cuts out, after which, it does not start unless the Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are cleared.

You will be required to direct the diagnosis through your analysis of test results and the technical information to hand. Simply log on, or register, at to have a go.
