    you mention immobiliser in topic. I had an immobiliser issue on an Ibiza; it would turn over and as soon as it fired it stopped. it was caused by the solder on the dash circuitry aging, fixed by resoldering the dash circuits. Is this anything like your car's symptoms?

    If you struggle to get this fixed bring it to my place http://www.autofaultfinder.com

    I can read keys and know my way round both copens and auto electronic.

    Could be the key, a crank sensor, a fuse, a relay.... only testing will find out.

    A couple of times a week I get cars brought down, often by other garages with "immobiliser" problems. Out of the approximately 1100 cars I fixed last year, there was only 1 car with an actual immobiliser fault, where the customer had dropped the keys which had fallen apart and lost the transponder chip in the process. The other common description is faulty ECU - I have swapped about 4 ECU's in the last 12 months, and Injector fault - I changed zero petrol injectors in the last 12 months, and about 3 Diesel injectors.
