Hello everyone, thought I would do some maiintenance work on my new to me xk8 so
1) pulled and cleaned the tube between mas air sensor and throttle body and attached lt correctly.
2 ) found broken vaccume connection from fuel pressure regulator to throttle body and control box. Fix
3) Had disconnected the battery negitave.
4) Engine turns over but will not start.
5) had seen on Utube to disconect the Positive also and then hold the positive and negative to gether for 30 seconds, then reattach and go to key and second position for a minute then start. No go.
Have I shut down the computer?
