Hi all again. I not been on the site for ages, i ahd forgotten all about it but had a memory jog from the admin team so am back with a problem that you have probably seen a lot before?

Above car won't run. it will fire and run for about 1 second but will always die immediately.

Not a clue where to start, it has fuel, compression and obviously a spark but then it stops, so?

Does the car have remote central locking,and if so,does it work at present?.

The common fault is either the batteries in the remote go flat or the reciever gets wet due to the roof aerial leaking.The remote switches off the immobiliser,so if it doesn't work,the car will not start.:(
