Well I took the zx out driving this past weekend and while I was driving it turned off. I was not driving it hard at all. Now when I try to start it when it sounds like it is about to crank it makes a pfft sound loses most power and starts trying to crank again. Any ideas?

Ignition module is my first guess. Usually the module will work again after the car cools off, then it will run fine until hot, and then die again.

Have you downloaded the Factory Service Manual? There is a complete troubleshooting guide in it that might give you a place to start. Search the Xenon S130 site for the FSM.

Still could be ign module. Sometimes they just fail altogether, out of the blue, no warning. The FSM is a good idea.

Is there a way to test the ign module?

I believe the FSM has a test procedure.

Thanks for the help guys. It turns out that the screw came out of the back of the rotor in the dizzy. Thanks again.
