    Everything comes in three(just not women)

    Neighbour hit my car on Monday so going into garage on Monday to get fixed

    But in that time i think my immobiliser is playing up as the car has not been starting and the lights have been flashing on and off after the glow plug lights go out and only after switching the ignition on and off a few times it has worked.........so is it ignition barrel or immobiliser??

    Next i lose the indicators and the front windscreen wipers when i get back from work today so i am looking for a relay or a fuse ...?

    Cheers

    I would say ignition barrel. Similar thing happened to me when mine went, it affected the wipers and the aircon, just before it broke completley and trashed my starter motor as well. It is probably worth changing this as a precaution as they are only about 20 and not too difficult to change yourself (excellent article in the tech section on audiworld.com).

    Does your key feel stiff in the barrel ?

    That article on Audiworld is spot on, saved me a 150 as my garage wanted to fit a new ignition barrel and get it coded for my keys etc etc.

    Hi Rev, you don't have to remove the barrel. The sprung section of the ignition is the connector at the end, which is secured by 2 small screws (painted red). Can't give you the URL from AW but it's under Electronics then a couple of page downs and it's called "Ignition Switch Replacement"
