Is the injection/engine management light on/not on/goming on then going off?
Is the code light coming on then going off ?

What about the "Code" light?
Does the fuel pump run?
Has it got any Petrol in it...?
Does the engine sound like it is turning over faster than normal?

The "Code" light is the one that says "Code" on it...!!

Unfortunately turning over faster than normal is pointing to a possible cambelt failure...

Hi Dave
I have checked the cam belt and that is fine the code light comes on and then goes out the only light that stays on once ignition is on is the engine symbol light on dash board
