Hello there,

You say it turns over, won't start.

So the engine is cranking fine?

So the starter motor will be fine.

How many kms on this engine?

Either you have immobilizer not reading the key, no spark, no fuel injector pulse, or broken timing belt.

Does your model have the separate transponder stick on the key ring?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
