    Worked fine yesterday. Took boot carpet out and gave everything a hoover to put down some sound deadening. Now it won't start.

    Two turns of the key and everything is normal apart from central locking, fuel guage and trip computer not working.

    Windows and indicators still work. It turns over but won't start.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    unlikely, but i've heard scouse saying something similar before about a friends car

    while in the boot is it possible you squashed one of the fuel pipes so not enough fuel is getting through

    although i think scouse meant the thinhs were in the back seat, so may not be the same.. worth a mension anyway

    Surely if its just a fuse it should still start?

    I have no manual. Uh ohs. Anything in the boot I could've cocked up?

    I've disconnected the ECU and gunna leave it for an hour and see if that does anything.

    Could be related, the seats were forwards and backwards while cleaning for the first time since I bought the car. Where would these lines be? Didn&#39;t see anything when I was back there.

    PM scouse cos it was his friend that had the same problem, although their car would start, but was just running rough and kept cutting out

    sounds like a fuse to me though if many things have failed at once. something may have shorted while you were moving around in the boot....

    Nah doubt it&#39;s fuel lines, just had a look and nothing is there.

    Does anyone have a manual and can check if trip puter, fuel guage and central locking is on the same fuse?

    Nope, found a handbook but it says nothing about central locking fuses.

    Checked all fuses. Number 6 is out, a 5A. Will buy a new one tommorrrow, and if that doesn&#39;t work I&#39;ll cry.

    YAY, changing fuse 6 worked. Turns out the bare wires from the neons I removed shorted when taking them out.

    Still not sure why this caused it to not start. Is fuse 6 connected to fuel pump relay or anything? Relay clicked when I put the new fuse in.

    IIRC number 6 has something to do with the central locking but I wouldn&#39;t imagine the pump would be on the same line? Unless its something to do with the safety cut off thing...

    Anyway, at least it runs now.
