    Is there an engine light on? Mind did this when the intake manifold flap failed and is common on diesels. Unplug it and fit a new fuse. To check if your fuse has blown open the fusebox in the engine bay and it is one of the fuses towards the front of the car. Hope this helps

    I think there's something on this in the FAQ section.
