Hey guys been a lurker on here for a while and now I have got a problem which I don't understand I'll explain I really hope someone has the answer and can help or has VAG-COM or something I live near Basildon, Essex for those who want to know.
Basically yesterday I had charged the battery over night and went to start it in the mourning was a bit of a pain as it always started after about 3-4 seconds as I had the car sitting on my driveway while I saved for insurance and other things, but yesterday it was really difficult to start and eventually I managed to get it to tick over while holding the starter motor I released the key and revved it and few times misfired a bit and held it around 4000rpm for 5 seconds let it drop down and it idled as usually thought it was a tad strange but it was idling let if for 5 mins and gave it a quick couple of blips still idling spot on I assumed the cold weather had been a tad rough on it, so anyway left it idling for 20-30mins while on the phone to the insurers spending near enough all my money got that sorted and then went out to the car it was upto temperature on the water and oil was at the first stop as it's alway been as I haven't driven it since I bought it in october, so thought nice I'll turn the car off pop up the road get the tax, I returned, and put the tax in the window and went inside ready to drive it to see my other half later at work for lunch.
Went out to the car all happy thinking this is going to be so nice to drive hoped in and turned the key nothing just turned over and over, for no reason wouldn't even try to fire into life after about 6-10 seconds on a prolonged try the low oil pressure light blinks three times I checked and found that if the engine hasn't fired into life it see's the pressure as being low obviously, I then later that night after a very upset other half, we live further than walking distance apart, I then found the fuel pump when turning the engine over doesn't buzz I assume like most cars it should prime but it doesn't I looked up this fuel pump relay and put 12 volts to it well hey it buzzing so the pump works, I then continued to start it but nothing fuel is getting to the fuel rail but sounds like its getting returned to the pump, but when turning the car over the pump stops? So since then it just turns over, I took the ecu out and put in the house to warm up thought it might reset something if out put it in this mourning nope still turns over, but wierd thing is after the first time I put it in the rev guage was going mental the car was off but it was revving too 3000 rpm on the accessory funtion wierd no warning car said it was ok turned it off and put it back in nope still not firing, I then found the little stalk on the left hand side of the dash pressed it and there's an X over a little usb icon it looks like, I can't remember what the other symbols are right now as I'm in work.
Can this be an immobiliser issue?
Currently really stress out and just want a answer for my next step, I can't understand how it can start up and work for all those months then cold weather rolls in and it refuses, I'm very stress out to the point where I'm sick and really shouldn't be in work to be honest, my other half is really unhappy and doesn't like to be away, I'm gutted as I've paid £1730 insurance £118.25 tax totally out of pocket until the 15th when I get paid which won't be a lot I just want someone to come down like god and help I know I'm not going to get much help but it's worth a try, I know a lot of you are extremely knowledgeable and it's probably something so stupid but I'm having to get my mum to drop me to work and my uncle to pick me up my other half live in Southend so it's a expensive train journey.......
I need a car to get to work and other commitments Sorry for the life story but I really need some help and guidence
