    Turns over but won't fire up.half a tank of petrol, Fuses all ok, no fault codes, put jump leads on and still nothing, no smell of petrol after! Checked plugs and were bone dry. Any feed back would be appreciated.

    I've been on u tube this afternoon and the fuel relay was mentioned as a possible problem. Just taken the cover off in the boot and looked at the pump housing!!!! Not to sure how that comes out.

    With the cover off when you turn the ignition on do you hear the fuel pump fire up?

    If so i would be looking at the crank sensor as the injectors wont fire if there is no signal from the sensor, sometimes if the sensor fails it wont give off a code if it has failed since it was last run, it would only throw up the code if it fails while the engine is running
