|01 1.9 wont start - intermittently!!! - zakhaj|
i have a very odd problem with my car....for the past couple of days, when i turn the key to start the car - NOTHING happens.
sometimes (maybe the 3rd or 10th time) the starter turns, and the car starts straight away (it doesnt hesitate to start, the starter doesnt have to run for any longer than usual)
When this happened, i rolled it down the hill in second gear with the clutch down, with the key ignition turned on (2nd position), and tried to bump start it. That didnt work either!!! i was very suprised at this, if the battery or started was at fault - then bump starting should definitely work??
I had to call the breakdown man, because the car just wouldnt start. He came out, and tested the battery - which was fine, he told me to push and tried to bump start it as well, and it wouldnt work. He said it was the immobiliser?? and that there isnt anything more he could do.
before he left he tried turning the key one last time, and it started!!!!!
since then iv brought the car home, and its been working - intermittently. somtimes the key turn work,s sometimes not
what on earth?? can anyone shed any light? thanks
