Hi guys,

Got about half a mile down the road when the engine just died ,got mechanic from MOT station too have a look.....no joy.got RAC to look ....no joy.got towed home.

When I turn the key I get nothing,not a thing,fuel pump doesn't prime, starter doesn't turn .

Immobiliser light flashes constant every 2seconds,nothing changes when ignition is left on,all fuses are fine everything works on the car,everything earthed.factory fitted alarm and immobiliser

Just check that the cut out switch hasn't activated. Can't remember where the reset button is, but normally in one of the footweels near the front bottom corner of the doors. There should be a flap with a button behind it.

If its not that it could be a fuse.

Thanks mate I've checked these things,there ok

It's as if the key isn't recognised and the starter and fuel pump have been cut off.

You may have to get a Ford main dealer or an auto locksmith to reset it/ re code it before it will start again

Do you have an OBD2 code reader?

Sounds like an immobiliser fault to me.
