    Hi, just joined so please be gentle. About a month ago tried to start car but no response, no noise nothing, all electrics worked etc, after few minutes it started perfect. It had done the same a few times since, until today, my wife got stranded at tesco and had to be towed back by the RAC. They checked and said suspected Starter Motor but couldnt confirm this as was underneath and he could not get to it, he tried several times to bump start it but no joy. Last night it started again after turning key 100 times, and started 1st time this morning.Please please help. Thanks.

    I think you may just have had a flat battery, with possibly an immobiliser rolling code problem.
