Hello and Welcome to justanswer...

These fuel pumps are a common failure Im afraid - so given what you describe , its likely that that is whats happened here....

To be sure, you will need to have the vehicle connected to suitable diagnostic equipment... Most smaller type garages have the necessary equipment these days so ring around locally...

Its not likely the pump is blocked...if its getting to the pump ...pump failure does look likely...assuming there are no immobilser faults, which the diagnostic tests will check too..

Try your spare key first ...if the key isn't being recognised, the immobilser will be active...its worth a try..Other than that - you need to progress as above on this one...

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


Kind Rgds, MIKE
