156 intermittent starting problem
I drive a 2000 1.6 lusso sportwagon which has recently developed a fault. I've had the car 3 years and do average to low mileage (56k), don't "thrash" it and keep it well looked after(FSH etc) it came with only one key which is now showing its age. sometimes the remote works.but recently it has stopped opening the rear tailgate automatically.I've fitted a new battery to the key. the car usually starts first time and runs really well,trouble is once parked mid journey it may or may not re start and has even cut out once at traffic lights. After a few minutes it starts and runs fine. Could it be the key or is there some other sensor playing up?
Any enlightenment would be much appreciated.
