Ok.. misses was driving along the road, van spluttered for a second, engine died... wouldnt start...

Now when u turn the key to AC power, theres a constant fast clicking continuously.. if you try to start the engine it starts for a split second, then dies puffing out smoke..

Ideas of possible problem..?

Other people on this forum with the 1KZ 3 litre turbo have reported ECU issues.

Can you trace the clicking sound? Although, you may end up tracing it to a relay (for example glow relay) that is just controlled by the ECU which may have an issue.

Check this thread for example (also see last message)

http://hiace-super-custom.free-boards.net/t1561-engine-cutting-out

If you can find a company that can repair ECU's, perhaps they can check and repair your ECU if that is the issue.
You could maybe also open it up yourself to see if anything is out of order (leaking capacitor or so) but you may need a magnifying glass to see leakage.

It may not be your ECU at all, but it is one of the weak points of the 1KZ engine.

If you know anyone with the same van with same engine, you could try swapping it, to see if it makes a difference.

Note - getting at the ECU is a fairly laborious process unless you cut the panel (in an un-noticeable place) to free it from the frame that supports the passenger-seat-bonnet.

Else I found a small panel removal was looking like major work to free it.
It's behind the passenger seat belt pillar BTW.

However that said, your sudden failure sounds too quick to be an ECU - they fail gradually as the capacitors dry out/leak.

So I'd suggest you check all the fuses first as that's easy, and then track down that sound. I watched the video and it sounds like a relay or actuator clicking away to me. It may be the faulty part itself or be a symptom, replacing it would answer that.

Possibly the EGR valve solenoid?
I'd be checking all the fuses first, the ones on the battery +ve lead and then the ones in the fuse box (drivers side footwell).

It's just possible you have run out of electricity too - measure the battery voltage.
