Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. On these vehicles - you switch the ign on - and you should get a symbol of a car with a key in it - on , on the dash.. The car has to be started while that light is on. Thats the overview..

If the light flashes or goes off when trying to start, the system has a fault somewhere..

If the system is "normal" as above, then you must have a different fault causing the poor starting which can be any one of the sensors playing up- or something other - but, it would need to go on a suitable diagnostic machine to check these systems / sensors etc out as you can't do that on these on a DIY basis Im afraid.. thats just the way it is these days with these modern vehilces..

In any event then, I know its not what you may want to here - but the car is seemingly going to have to go back on the diagnostic machine one way or the other..

Prior to that, what you need to do is determine , if you can, by observing that light as above - whether its an immobilser issue or other and then you can advise teh garage from there..

Too - if and when its playing up - try your other key/s ... just in case you have a faulty key. The keys have been reprogrammed but it doesn't mean one or the other is not faulty...

So work through as above and then act on the results therefrom as above..

I Sincerely hope I have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help.
