Diagnostic Help Please 300E 2.6

Having trouble starting.

Fully Charged Battery
No Throttle, cranks fast, does not fire
slight throttle and then now throttle, cranks fast fires, up to 400 revs, sound eneimic, dies after 4/5 seconds.

Has 1/4 tank of gas, but has been idle for 4 weeks, (daughter at college)

Lights, alarm, services all seem OK, I am thinking fuel starvation or weak spark but have not fault found on this mark before any suggestions ?

Thanks

Mike

Thanks fore the emails you guys. After a search I found the OVP links. Sure enough, one of the 2 10amp fuses had gone. It was a little tricky to find so I thought I would add that this device is located behind the large plastic cover behind the battery. It wiggles out vertically.

Its freezing out there but this made for a quick fix.

Thanks again
