    Help - car just died

    Thankfully got home.

    However when I ave gone to move the car it just won't start. It doesnt turn over.

    Have just VAG it but nothing comes up. had a look underneath and saw that the coilpack in 1 and 3 were 'up' pushed them down and that seemed to help but it still did not start. VAG it again and checked measuring bocks 15 and 16 and there are no misfires.

    Only one issue of a 17705 but all is in order around the DV etc and all pipes. plus I have had it before with no issues.

    Any ideas?

    Disconnect the battery, leave for 30 mins, connect back up and try again.

    When you turn the ignition on do the Dials work/Light up?

    Got recovered last night, appears that all is fine and that the fuel pump is fecked. You should be able to hear it fire up. Oh well just waiting for the call from the garage to when they will be getting it bac to me.

    Yeah you should be able to hear the fuel pump prime when you turn the ignition on 1 click. I'm guessing you've checked the fuse? Number 28 I believe.

    So the starter doesn't fire at all? Engine doesn't turn over at all....? If not then the fuel/spark/everything else is irrelevant. Hit starter motor with something big and hard! Check main power lead to starter from the battery also - probably do that first!

    EDIT:

    Just read the post saying that it's in the garage.... Disregard!
