    1.9 TDI wont start

    Hi all, reciently bought an 1999 A4 1.9tdi 189k (90 bhp) Avant which has been off the road for 6 months. Booked in for M O T and drove it over, car ran fine until I got to the garage then it became very lumpy at lidle so I switched it off.
    Now it wont start at all just keeps turning over any ideas as to what's up?

    Any help would be great.
    Cheers

    Could be a number of things:

    1. Immobiliser (Yellow flashing key symbol on dash on ignition)
    2. Run out of fuel (Incorrect fuel guage reading)
    3. Fuel filter blocked/air in the fuel lines/water in the fuel
    4. Lift pump has packed in AFAIK these engines dont have a fuel pump the fuel is dragged directly from the tank to the engine by the injector pump.

    Im sure given enough time you'll get far more detailed answers

    Hi Steve, I now have this fault with the immobiliser that Jonny mentions. The yellow flashing key symbol is present and the fault code suggests immobiliser which I expected. When you say it's all sorted, what did you have done to cure the problem?
    Cheers
