Hi I have a dci100 1.9 04 with 87k on the clock, it has never let me down before. After standing for a couple of weeks it won't start. Fuelled, battery ok and no faults on my elm2 scanner.....any ideas as to why it won't start??? Thankd

My immediate thought is that and the title of the thread.
My suspicion is that it has lost fuel prime and needs priming.
Give the primer a few squeezes... it should get hard. (If it doesn't, that needs sorting)
Now get a helper..... keep squeezing the bulb while they try to start it.
If that doesn't work, get a can of easy start, remove the air filter and squib the ES into the inlet (outlet from the filter box) while cranking it over.
If you can squib and squeeze the primer at the same time, even better.
Keep clear of moving parts.

Primer bulb, Just under the driver side Inner wing ( from under the bonnet )
You need to remove the black cover that sits between the washer bottle and scuttle panel
You can just get at it then

Hi started on easytstart ok, wont start without it. I also have the stop light on and it doesn't go off unless the engine is running.l, shouldn't it go off shortly after the ignition is turned on??

If you still have no diesel up it wont run on its own

Keep priming, get someone to press the start button, and at the same time spray the easy start in the turbo mouth
Can take half a can of easy start if you didn't use the primer bulb first
