Ignition lock will not release

Vauxhall Astra Mk4 wont start?

Really no idea whats going on here.. 4 Months ago I purchased a Mark 4 (2001) Y Reg, Astra. 1.8 16V SRi. Beautiful car.. Runs perfectly - never had a single problem with it.. Sometimes - it will be a little slugish on the ignition turn.. i.e - sounds like its struggling to start.. But after 2 sluggish turns - it starts no problem.. As of late - it has cut itself out a few times - it seems to be when the cars on a vertical slope pointing upwards.. But nothing to concern me about. Give it a little rev and it ticks over perfectly. Sometimes - the dash will 'flicker'.. I.e - the petrol gauge needle will fly up - back down and then to the proper reading.. I noticed also when I put my Hazards on the other day - that the lights on the dashboard dim and flicker when the indicator lights flash simultaneously.. Well. Tonight - I pull over into a layby just to grab some eats before heading off again.. Turned the ignition off - left the sidelights on.. not a problem usually. Went to start the car again and noticed the lights - headlights and fog lights were producing hardly any light.. Went to start the car and nothing! It ticks once, then all the lights go off, inside and on the dash - and nothing.. Release key and start process over.. Sometimes it'll flash the Garage + Spanner symbol after attempting to turn - but not every time.. Never had any problems - and ideas? Im presuming this is electrical (yay).. I wouldnt of presumed it was the Battery as Radio / Dash is getting power.. Had troubles locking it! Had to do that manually.. Serviced not long ago.. Any ideas is gratefully appreciated.. Gonna get RAC out tommorow if cant figure it out.. As its still in the layby :( Battery - Starter Motor - Alternator> No warning lights on.


get some nail varnish remover and a good rag , stick it down your carb and CLEAN all the muck out......carefuly...............worked fine for me

this is a voltage issue and we need to look at connections and wiring condition especially at battery. battery may also be on way out ( fairly likely) if all connection to battery are clean and good. check battery out ,possibly best to replace anyway. ( I would) if we still have same issues then it will be a poor connections along system and needs to be traced eg bulkhead connecting block.

Battery and or alternator. I would go for the alternator being faulty but if the battery is over 3 years or so old it will have taken that out as well.

03 Renault Laguna 2 2000 initale card and immobiliser?

Old and only! key card failed again after a couple of repairs. symptom: flashing immob red light flashed more rapidly, would not turn on ignition/release steering lock/disarm immobiliser.Doors locked during attempt to start car would not unlock.due to faulty card. door opened from inside car triggered alarm which would not turn off due to faulty card. Battery disconnected at neg terminal to kill hazard lights.Siren disconnected (unplugged from back of it)to stop racket bothering neighbours. New card ordered car transported to dealers.New card programmed to car BUT. They say steering lock fault £400+ to fix please. Empty pockets and suspition of dealers say car back on transporter to my drive. Notice that now when old card inserted immob light goes from slow flashing without key normal i think, to solid where as before it flashed more rapid does exactly the same with new card also should the alarm siren have been plugged back in before programming new key cos it wasnt. neither card will operate door locks the only thing that happens now when either key is inserted is the red light goes from slow flash to steady. Any help would be greatly appreciated wife ready to torch car.


Key cards fail after a time.Other faults on these cars are uch and ucc body control.Card readers sometimes fail and relays.Get someone to enter key and move and tap relays in fusebox in bonnet and check all fuses.We are a company in gb and mend these all the time,if you are lucky it may be a relay or fuse,but can be expensive if uch fails

    Wow - unexpected

    0 5/5 G - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) I did not expect this! At $20 it was worth a try to get a second Fob... and it actually worked! In my 2006 Nissan Maxima SE, I had to modify the instructions a slight bit; I had to jam the key in and pull it out of the ignition like 10-12 times before the flashers flashed, not 6 like it said. It is exactly the same as the one I currently own (including markings on back), which means I either already have a knockoff just like it, or this is an actual OEM part. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 11, 2012
