A no start condition may develop due to an anti-theft system fault. If the drive authorization module fails to recognize the keys, the engine will not start. In many cases, a new module and keys will be needed to correct this problem.

Intermittent no-start at times, as if loss of electrical power/switch. Dash lights up, but no "crank". After several attempts at re-turning key, all goes back to normal, but window(s) full up/down function does not work right away. ??

Car wouldn't crank after replacing starter and battery.. inserted key like 10 tens then it cranked and ran. shut it off and now same problem
The car dash lights came on momentarily when accelerating from rest the first day then the next day it cut out at traffic lights and would not start it was checked at one dealer scanned P2071-8 and P1999- start enable das not sent .it has started once since and is now being assessed at a specialist electrician so will let you know what the diagnosis is
car dies while driving won't restart. Fuel pump, filter, hoses and crankshaft sensor replaced. still does the same thing.o
