    KE Jetronic expert needed

    Anyone familiar with the Bosch KE jetronic system on a Mercedes W124 300

    Its a car I have built and is just about finished , I drove it down the road once then it developd a problem and as yet I can't sort it

    Starts and runs for about 10-15 secs then cuts out, turn off ign switch back on and it starts????

    We bypassed the relay to run the pump constant but still the same
    It seems like it loses fuel pressure!
    Thanks anyway

    KE Jetronic relies heavily on good constant fuel pressure( difficult to check without the correct equipment) so probably the best place to start your diagnosis. Good luck.
