Try looking at Relay 109, plus check the aux fusebox (the one near the battery) for any signs of meltdown occurring. Loads of posts on here about relay 109 (same thing as relay 30 on the petrols), general theme is either resolder the relay pcb or replace the relay.

Would wonder though if something has been done to the immobiliser to ignore the keyfob and you have now somehow confused it whilst trying to fix it - Can you trace the plastic surround that goes round the barrel and make sure its really the one connected to the ecu (when i looked at this, the ecu for the alarm and immobiliser is down near the top end of the clutch pedal, the aerial bit just runs down the steering column to it).

ABS fault shouldn't be anything to do with it obviously.

Which fuses were popped?

Headlight fuse was popped. Had to drive it down the m6 with fogs on lol, checked relay 109 and replaced cam across another post on here about starter as it gad the same syptoms, i tried live feeding the starter and it did nothing, will take out and see if its dodgy, also will check the immobiliser cable. When i bought it they couldnt start it with the immobiliser ring over the barrel but as soon as it was off it fired up

The immobiliser ring bit seems a bit odd - almost like its seeing an invalid key.

I'd get hold of Forscan and a suitable cable (assuming its a Ford not VW/Seat) and have a look at the PATS programming section. The compatible cables should be the ones with a switch fitted, You will need a Forscan license, but they do a free 2 month one through their forum.

VCDS won't work on the Ford Badged vehicles for PATS only (its fine for all the other functions, but even the diesels are different in this respect only) as far as I know, these use a Ford protocol (as if you were to go for Ford for a replacement key etc you'd need the Ford dealer to be able to access the system rather than suggesting you goto VW instead). I've used Forscan on a Petrol mk2 to add keys so you should be ok there. At least that might give you a clue whats going on with PATS if nothing else.

Yes, but as long as you have a key, you can add another one. If you get a precoded transponder, then Forscan can add the second key (Autowave on eBay do them for a few pounds).

Mine only had 1 key and 1 transponder programmed to it, provided you don't try and delete keys it won't matter anyway (its only when you come to add keys you have to give it 2 keys total - you can reuse an old key for that, might even be able to reuse your other transponder, and really you want at least 2 just incase one gets lost, as you can't use forscan with no matching keys at all). But you more want to see why it won't work with what you have, and the PATS system does have some basic error codes which should shed some light on whats going on.

well it depends whats wrong with the locking, but i'd doubt it. But you can buy a set of door handles with the lock barrels, don't even need to remove the door card if you can turn the lock, open the door, remove the single bolt that holds the handle in place, turn the key to unlock position, then push the handle to the front of the car, and you should be able to remove it (if the lock barrel is really broken or missing completely, you can probabbly skip the bit of turning the key first).

Refit is the reverse of it - turn the key will allow you to slip the handle past the bit that operates the door catch (saving messing further with the door catch or taking the door card off) Once you've done it a couple of times it should only take you a minute or so to remove them.

The paddle bit on the back is a rubbish design, and does break far too easily, but repair kits for that are available.

What exactly does the locking do or not do? Broken wires in the door gaiters are the usual first place to start looking (including the righthand one on the boot), if that doesn't help then its possible you have a faulty door lock motor if some of them aren't working (one faulty one has been reported to stop others working).

Fix the drivers door lock (or at least get it so you can turn it from outside to lock and unlock with the screwdriver) and follow the sync process in the faq section on here. If it still won't do it, try a new pair of batteries and try again, if it still won't do it the fobs probabbly knackered. The front and back handles are identical except for the lock barrel bit, you can use a back one for the front if you don't have one with a key.

Its also possible to completely take a barrel out and swap tumbers about in the barrel - theres 8 in there in total, 4 in each side. If your lucky you might be able to make up a suitable barrel from a scrap one or two to match your other key that does the ignition.

Later mk2s i think only have the drivers side with a key fitting, early ones like mine have them on both sides (they are the same on both sides of the car as well, so you can swap them around)

Right all runs now after a starter motor replacement! :) got one for £50 brand new instead off £101 on europarts new key starts with no immobiliser issues so this may explain the cut cables by the console, i did the door cables that was hilarious, 8 broken in the rear drivers door and 2 in drivers all windows now work. After all this work i have to sort the brakes im getting a fault through vagcom so will check them over. Now i have 1 small issue, No fuel gauge ?!?! Any ideas?

You can gain access to the fuel gauge sender through the floor in the rear - remove the door surround on the floor from the drivers side rear door, lift the carpet and theres a hatch there to allow access.

I'd try chucking some more fuel in it first though, as it might just be a dead spot on the gauge. Not sure if you can see anything for the detected fuel level in VCDS never looked, but if you can and the gauge doesn't reflect it that would suggest the gauge is at fault, or the wiring to it (possible something has been cut with all the other stuff if its never worked, if its only just stopped working would suspect its a faulty part more likely).

The connector on the back of the cluster is a single multipin one I think - at least the mk1 was, not sure on the mk2. Might be worth checking it for any corroded pins etc. Otherwise your looking at pulling the sender from the tank and checking it with a multimeter really.

Okay thanks vagcom wont connect to fuel sensor as its a galaxy and forscan reads no faults yet vag com does lol, fuel gauge worked until it fired up? Very confusing i know it has just under half a tank of fuel in it aswell, took it for a spin to get some charge and never cut out, ill have a check at the fuse, it played up when the cable was broke in door but they are fine now (double checked)

Don't know what the vacuum is generated by on the diesel ones, but you need to check the pipe is connected both ends and not split. If you find no vacuum on pipe it would suggest the problem isn't the servo at least. The pipes are known to split at the ends.

If it is a split pipe, any vacuum hose same size can be used instead. The solid original hose does seem to suffer with splitting.

Vac pump is on side of head above gearbox, take pipe off there and check for vac at outlet. If no vac itís a tandem pump change needed. Can get them off the bay cheap enough just make sure you get correct type as there are 2 a Bosch and a luk. Ideally you want the highest revision of the pump at end of part number there is a letter a is first one and I think p is last revision if memory serves correct.

you might do well to remove the air charge pipe for better access to the vacuum connection on the tandem pump, just for info the tandem pump is two pumps in one unit, the large push on pipe is for vacuum supplying the brake servo and a small bore pipe T'd on to supply the various control valves for turbo, EGR, and manifold flap.
The two other connectors are diesel flow and return pipes to the high pressure pump feeding the injectors through gallery's in the cylinder head.

Is it possible you have a couple of issues? The whistling sounds like it could have a boost leak to or turbo issue to me,canít imagine a vac leak on servo pipe would cause a whistling noise that increases with rpm.

As for the noise/vibration itís hard to diagnose over tinterweb can you give any more details does it only occur in 1st/2nd,does it go when pressing clutch etc?

Yes a few issues ( it was £300 and im willing to put upto £400 to get it right) As for boost leak would that have an impact on power output of the car because it pulls suprisingly well ? And yes only in first and second but not when clutch is depressed. This morning i left it in first at a safe speed and it just felt like it was yanking the car around. I have a rough idea it may be a mount or wishbone. It is fine at higher speeds even 70 does not cause the same syptoms

If you only have slight vac direct from pump then itís sounds like the pump is knackered you should get 20+ hgvac from pump ideally around 25.
If you had a boost leak then yes power would suffer also black smoke from exhaust.

Got the main one that runs to brake servo there is a take off for vac pipe to EGR,anti shudder and n75 boost solenoid and the vac res by oil filter.

Have a look at this link it gives you the details for current set up,I went with simplified on mine as I got rid of egr and anti shudder valve.

Awesome thank you my engine is asz aswell nice it had both diagrams hopefully after this its just routine stuff. So far done ignition barrel, starter motor, front brakes (rear to do) ordered a new passenger headlight, waiting for replacement washer pump. Ordered wipers and door lock and got the central locking working. All seems to run great atm. Want to do a service when possible but thanks to this forum and guides its up and running :D

When you bled clutch did fluid pump out with pedal presses? If so you issue is box end slave cylinder be my guess  by sound of your problem.

Yes fluid did come out, if the slave has gone will i lose fluid? Also i can see the gearbox mount looks like it has bottomed out, deep fresh scratches on the mount, is it worth just doing the clutch at the same time? Also any advice for dropping the box? Thanks

That suggests master is working ok, no necessarily leak but if seal knackered inside it could not be holding pressure. Seems odd it happened after a bump though.
Never had box off a galaxy so canít answer about any tips etc. But yes if it was coming off I would do complete kit with DMF

Okay yeah it was very odd i think it could of beed vibration through bottoming the mount maybe, the only kits i can find are without DMF and im finding luk 3 in 1 for £178 with codes and DMF £523 which is well out of my price range and also double what i paid for the car lol. Is the DMF a must change?

DMF isnít a must as such but Sodís law says even a DMF thatís not causing issues will fail within months of having the gearbox off to do the clutch.

Ahh im going to have to risk it, prices of the dmfs are obserd almost double what i paid, ill be dropping the box this weekend to see if it is just the slave cyclinder, as when ive been driving its previous the clutch bite was low hopefully i havent popped the clutch plate out of its holder (seen a few videos)
