Guys

Anyone had any trouble with starting?

Had my 2004 XS for about a month, great for towing!

Went to shops got back in car, would not start, tried a couple of times then locked it, opened it, tried again, bingo.

The last two mornings (a bit damp) same deal, I am used to a quick kick in once the pig tail goes out.

Spoke to dealer they said try spare key which I have and when I tried to start it with that, no immobiliser indicator on dash. Used oringinal key and okay. Used spare again this was then fine.

I need turn key starting, any ideas so I dont end up back and forward to the dealer and we all know it wont show any signs of trouble when they have it.

Wish I could help you. We don't have any immobilizers in the US, other than the Amanti.

The dealer should be able to hook up the scan tool and troubleshoot it.

If it was turning over but not starting have a look at my "clatter" thread on Sorentsite, problems.

My diesel wouldn't start either amongst otehr things and it was a short in the wiring loom to the injectors

cheers
