Yup it does.
Reason I asked David C is I noticed it clicking . Then it stopped and since then The car takes forever to start.
Prior to that it started first turn of the key even when the battery ran a bit flat.
I thought it might be related?
I pressume as this would appear to not be the case I need to try changing the crank sensor.
Just found it odd one day it was fine next it's not.

Fuel pump relay is in front of the battery.
The relay in the boot will be for the towbar.

Thanks David . Any ideas as to what s causing the starting issue? It just so sudden.
Is it normal for the crank sensor to just go with no previous issues or could it be something else?
Any help would be great.
I know your advice has been really helpful in the past.
The alarm and key seems to be working fine. Central locking works fine and I've got no dash lights.
They all come on and go out once the cars started as they should.

It will start but only after cranking it for 20 seconds or more?
