did you find the solution ? what is your opinion after testing ? is it Ok ? if yes please try to summarize it
do you think if I replaced the Fuse BOX (with new one or at least second hand one) will fix this problem ?
Many Thanks ALL
I can make a video of starting the car if you like but it's very easy to understand without that.
You just need to push the contacts together on the starter relay (engine bay next to battery) which is the relay on the right side of the picture below (the grey cover has been removed) You can use a plastic pen or non-conductive object for safety!
If you'd like another option you can pull out the brown
relay in the picture below and then push it back in again - then try to start the car once more.
This relay is in the fuse panel below the steering wheel by your left knee. I find this quite tricky to do as my fingers are a bit big but it's possible. Just turn off the ignition - pull the relay. Push it back in - then try to start the car.
The permanent solution is to connect a wire according to this diagram:
If you replace the fuse box (IPS Module) that will probably cost around US$500 but there's no guarantee that the problem won't come back, as it's the same low quality part. It also needs to be re-programmed for your remote key fobs too.
I'm going to do the wiring job - probably in 2 weeks time - I'll take some photos when I do this and post them here when I get it done
