Esprit V8 no start issue

Recommended Posts

Hi All - 

Come  across a very annoying issue with my V8, it just wont start. Ignition goes on, fuel pump primes and when you turn the key, literally nothing.. doesn't turn, doesn't even flinch (I'm slmost certain the immobiliser is off as well).

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

sounds like the immobiliser to me.  is the light off or flashing on the dash?

The light is off, that's why I'm confused. It's like it's just not instructing the car to start when I turn the key. Any relays or fuses that I should look at?

Immob is a two cut one. Could be one half is not working. 

Are you sure the starter is getting its fire signal?

Hi Barry, I'm afraid I'm a bit ignorant when it comes to the immob, is there any way I can check both halves are disengaging? That's exactly what she's doing just not telling the starter to turn!
