    Turn the radio on and see if it remains on, or shuts down for a second.

    If it stays running, then the car isn't getting the "start" signal, due to either the ignition switch playing up or the EWS ring antenna.

    Thanks for the reply I started using my other key and it works fine with that so I think it might be the key, it unlocks the car fine tho, does anyone know how I go about getting the key looked at?
