Hi there good morning to you and sorry for the delayed response

Ok does the engine turn over /crank when you turn the key

If not what does the red Immobilsor light do on the dash (flash rapidly ) this should come on for 3 seconds then go out

Is that the little red light?
Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 1 year ago.

Hi there yes

Some early models have a red padlock in the centre of the dash

The Immobilsor light will flash Slowly when the vehicle is locked

Also is this the newer shape mk6 fiesta or the last of the old shape mk 5

If you are unsure I can check this using your registration number

so I assume the engine doesn't turn over (nothing when key turned )

Bk08 PZT thank you I was just changing the battery but it started to rain

Also when I turn the key the engine makes the noise as if it's trying to start
Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 1 year ago.

Hi thanks

Ok if the engine is trying to turn over slowly this indicates low battery voltage

Has the battery been replaced yet or jump leads attached to attempt starting
