    Car turns over but won't start ?

    Hi

    My 172 sport has sat still for around a month and a week or so, I went to start it and it turns over but will not start. The fuel is at one bar and was put in around 2 months ago. It's had a full service and was no problem up until now ? Any ideas would be appreciated ?

    What does the immobiliser light do? Little red dot in the center of the dials.

    What is the TDC sensor and where is it located please ? I have a very basic understanding so unfortunately it needs to be very simple lol I can not remember about the immobiliser light !

    Does it crank for about 3 seconds then die?

    Might be the same thing I am having an issue with, which I think is the immobiliser.

    The red dot goes off after a few seconds of turning on the ignition, I just tried to start it and it just will not fire up. I will check the sensor in the morning and let you guys know how I get on. Thanx for your help guys

    If it helps, I did run the car for around 15 mins a week ago, after around 2 minutes it died but restarted and ran fine for the next 13 mins untill I turned it off ?

    When you turn the ignition on but don't start, can you hear the fuel pump priming?

    No I can't mate, I just tried another 6-8 times to get it started and around the last two times something behind the dash board starting making a noise, like a clicking. I don't dare try no more as my batteries getting flat ?

    That may be the relays you can hear. In the engine bay, try swapping the black tall thin relays around to see if the pump primes.... I will be doing that this evening on mine.

    That will be my next step, heard it's a pain to get to. Also test the clip on the fuel pump end to see if you are getting 12V coz it may be a fuel pump problem.

    Yeah he sorted it by changing the 3 relays he mentioned. 1 was the fuel relay and the other 2 got done because they were cheap and look corroded as well.

    Let's hope both our cars start after replacing these relays. Order them from RS using the part code as it's only 2.90 each compared with 14 or so it says on here from Renault

    Okay I've put 5l of fuel in and won't start, I've now been swapping round the 3 relays and i think one may be f**ked , I got what I think was the pump to prime but then my cars flat nOw from all the attempts to start it. I will order the relays as posted and see what happens, what's that yellow square in the fuse box next to the relays ?
