Re: 156 Start Problems
Hope I've put this reply in the right place.
Good news is that the car is starting okay now. Fault was with... an aftermarket immobiliser. The remote keyfob was faulty. Replaced batteries and hey presto, however as I don't know if I'd fitted the correct batteries in the remote I've removed the unit and wiring in their entirety. Should point out that the engine tried to turn over for a second each time the starter key was turned, I had assumed wrongly that an immobiliser would have stopped this from happening. The engine could be bump started without disarming the immobiliser! Anyway it's out now and engine problem sorted, now about that airbag warning light?
Thanks to all who offered a solution.
