Title: Immobiliser active and Engine malfunction.
Post by: Adam1 on August 28, 2013, 10:28:15 AM
After some help please guys for my parents who have a 59 plate 1.8Tdci.
 
They are getting the above warning messages on the dash and the car wont start after its sat for two weeks on there holiday. They drove it to Somerset fine then it wouldnt start when they was due to return. The ignition comes on but wont turn over.
 
They called out the AA who could not fix it and ended up recovering them home yesterday.
 
Does anyone have any ideas what the problem may be or anything I can try?
 
Thanks
 
Adam

I've heard of a relay failing that wont start the car but i am afraid I don't no anything about a mk3 its completely ford, so different systems to mk1/2 but Google starting relay and u should find out which number or ring ford and have a look.

There's been instances of low battery voltage causing various problems with electrical circuits, may be faulty battery or something draining battery over a few days.
