Hi sounds like you have a engine control unit relay fault as this supplies the power to the engine ecu and since you say you get no warning lights coming on this would fit in with this relay playing up. These are known to play up to cause non start problems like this.
I hope this helps but if I can help further pleas feel free to ask
Do you know which relay it is? What number does it have on it?
Hi you are looking for the fuel pump relay which is position number 1 on the relay plate in behind the fusebox hidden behind the lower dash trim on the drivers side.
I hope this helps
OK I will have a look through and see what else I can dig up for you to try and get back to you as soon as I can
I have noticed that if you turn the ignition on and wait for the fuel pump to stop running which can take upto about 5 minutes some mornings it will start straight away
Hi sorry I lost your question
Are you still having problems with starting?
The engine ecu is shot to bits in need of replacing. Only problem is the car is now off the road and unable to get one until next week
Hi at least you know what the problem is now. You are aware that the engine ECU will need to be coded to the car and the immobiliser to allow it to start and the ECU itself will need to be coded to tell it what sort of car you have?
Yes i know that
