    Bloody typical. Any thoughts on this? It's turning over, but won't fire up. Battery light is showing on the dashboard...

    Started fine earlier today when I moved her so I could give her a go over with the pressure washer. Also removed the auto changer from the boot, but can't see that making any difference.

    Thanks Wayne but it's started now, had a mate on the phone suggesting things while I was looking under the bonnet. Probably about 2 minutes of turning over and it fired. Stopped and started it 4 or 5 times now and fires first flick of the key!

    Was thinking immobiliser initially, but my mate thinks it sounded more like fuel starvation... :confused:
