hi i have a crash damage 2006 focus sport im fixing up its got a 1.6 zetec.

theres a leek in the water pump and the engine is more or less completely dry.

what i wanna know is would the ecu sense this and stop the engine from starting?
because i cant get her to start up! also the engine warning light is on, could this be from the coolant aswel?


thanks people

coolant level may set a code but it will not stop the car from starting. there is another issue. does it crank? or is it completely dead?
