If the engine won't turn over at all (no sound when turning key) or the starter motor just continues to turn but the engine won't fire you may have immobilser issues. Many modern vehicles do have an immobiliser warning light on the dashboard (usually a sillhouette of a key) - check your manual. But some vehicles will not have this warning light. And if the immobiliser is not factory fitted then the light will not come on.

- disconnect voltage to HT leads and subsequently stop spark plugs from firing

- Lock up the vehicle using the remote if equipped and open again. This may reset the immobiliser. Then try and start the vehicle

Check the VERY obvious but sometimes overlooked first - Is there petrol in the vehicle? Is the battery flat? Are the connections to the battery loose?

Depending on the vehicle the immobiliser system may employ any combination or all of the above.

If all this fails then further investigation will be required by a specialist.

If the starter motor is turning then the usual course of action an engineer would take is to see if the plugs are sparking or that fuel is being pumped and then work back to the cause of any irregularity.

If the engine occasionally splutters as if it is just about to start but doesn't fire up fully, starts and keeps cutting out or turns over very slowly then this is likely not related to the immobilser.

- Check your vehicle's owner's manual and look up fuel cut off resetting. Many vehicles have a safety system which cuts off fuel supply in the event of an impact. This can sometimes cut in inadvertently. Normal procedure is to press a button situated either under the bonnet (hood) or under the dashboard.

Hi I have Panda Eco and only have one key that does everything, your ignition key should open all the doors, maybe there's a fault with the boot lock.

If your car won't start then it could be due to your vehicle's immobiliser system. The following is the best way to isolate the problem:

_ Disconnect the vehicle's battery for 5 to 10 minutes, reconnect and then try starting the vehicle. Again this may reset the immobiliser/ECU.

- Next, find any spare keys and try them. This will rule out any problems with the transponder chip within your key. Although this does not rule out problems with the transponder aerial.
