If the locking bar isn't fully latched that's a very likely cause as the connector won't lock in properly otherwise and you'll only be getting partial contact with some of the terminals.

Spot on buddy. :)  Just to wind this thread up thanks for all the suggestions. The locking bar about a quarter of the way up, probably courtesy of my sons mate's big feet! I must stress to anyone with similar weird problems it was only a tiny fraction out of place, not the half over I at first thought, so there we go problem solved.

Thanks again

Fixed 3 of 4 injectors were on the way out. It now starts perfectly. :)

I cured the lots of cranking when the starter motor was changed. Now it starts after a turn or so quite happily but then stalls straight away unless throttled up. Might give it a try though, only a few quid for a crank sensor.
