1 Answer


Chech the fuses and relays. Check mainly the Main and starter relay. When the ignition is switched on what does the immoblizer warning light do ? Does it come ON ? or does it stay OFF ? Does this light flash quickly and then flash up a code ? Did you drop the ignition key at any time. This could cause the transponder in the key to break and this won't crank or start. I would take your vehicle to a reputable auto electrician and let him have a look at it.
