I have a 2004 fiesta 1.3 with manual gearbox. About 4 months ago it was started and moved about 1/4 mile then parked up with no problems, During the 4 months the battery drained down to about 7 volts so a new battery was fitted but it wouldn't start, in fact when the key was turned all the dash lights came up but nothing else, not a squeak from the starter motor. no power to the solenoid but there was 12v power leaving the ignition switch. By turning on the ignition and running a live lead to the solenoid terminal the engine would spin over but not so much as a cough from it.!
There is not a remote blipper with this car, only standard keys. I have tried to reset the fuel cut-off switch but it was OK. It is as though there is an immobiliser somewhere but it doesn't show on the wiring diagrams. Does anyone have any ideas about this please. ???
