    Hello,

    I have had a couple of times where this has happened. Once car started fine, drove a few miles, stopped, turn off, went into mates house for about 2 hours. Came out, turned key and click!. lights fine, dash fine, just click. Panicing i called a mate and he said he would come have a quick look. It took him about 40 mins to get where i was, during this time i went to halfords to get some jump leads and he pick me up from there. Then got to the car ( about a mile away ) i turn the key and it starts no problem. Fine didnt happen for a few days. Then same thing, started no problem, went to parents, stopped, popped in, then came out and the same, turn the key and CLICK. Gave it 10 mins , turned the key again and started no problem. But now its happening more and more. Im beginning to panic it happens in a petrolstation or omething.

    Any ideas...

    This sounds more like a sticking starter motor, rather than immobilizer issues.

    Next time it happens, give the starter motor a few whacks with something. It might even need replacing.
