My Xantia HDi broke down last week on the motorway. The car just came
to a stop. After I has tha AA tow it back home, I have charged the
battery, tried ti start it. It turns over but won't fire up.
I have spoken to a bloke who said it may be the immobiliser that has
kicked in. Any ideas how to reset/disable it.
Oh, by the way, it is a 2001 HDi without the keypad immobiliser.
Thanks in advance
Cannot help with immobiliser problems but can you hear the fuel pump start
(under the rear seat) when you switch on ?
If nothing heard you might like to check the fuel relay (orange encapsulated
unit near the engine management unit <£5 new) or the pump itself.
All the best
I did hear of a similar problem with a 307 HDI, when it was delivered new.
The solution for that was to disconnect the battery for 10 minutes,
reconnect and try again. Something to do with the ECU getting its knickers
in a twist.
