jettadan1 :

Your car is out of the us but you should have a fuse block inside and under hood.

jettadan1 :

You will want to check all of them that have to do with starter ignition or altenator. all higher amp fuses

jettadan1 :

I would un hook neg battery cable and positive for ten seconds.

jettadan1 :

they may reset your system

Customer :

Thanks and let me know if you have any further questions at all.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I found out what it was....all the fuses are OK.

Then i read the manual,and it say that there is something we call "startspærre" in this old car.It is about the code inside the ignition key,so i was thinking about my old cracked key,and found my spare one....used it and the car started and runs fine.

The old key has worked fine for the last 13 years,but all things have a limit,and i think it was a random "unluck" that it would happen the same day as i jumpstarted the other car.

Expert:  jettadan1 replied 3 years ago.
Things like that happen. All the time. I am thrilled you got her going. Did you have a security light on?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No security light on or anything else.....
Expert:  jettadan1 replied 3 years ago.

Thanks Daniel
