Hi Mike - to be honest I haven't a clue where the starter button relay is situated - I suspect under the bonnet. What makes you think the relay is faulty - may be worth checking out the cables to the starter though. I discovered similar probs on a Megane and was able to trace it to a bad earth on the engine. As I said earlier it could also be a duff card reader as the system will not let the engine start until the card is locked in the card reader. This is a safety device to prevent it being removed whilst the engine is running or the car is being driven. Additionally it couls also be down to a duff steering lock as the car won't strt until it is free.
