Hi there, new to the forum and after some advice.

I have recently purchased a 03 plate 1.7TDi Corsa from the dreaded fleabay. All was fine up until the other day when the battery died on me. A new battery was purchased and installed however the car will now not start. The lights come on on the dashboard and the service and EML lights go off but when the key is turned to the third position..... nothing.

I fear that the immobiliser has activated but the only key that came with the car is not the master and I don't have a fob to remote lock it.

Any advice is welcome!

Yes I have contacted the seller who has no idea either and lost the fob some time ago :(. Obviously don't want to pay Main Dealer prices to get it sorted.

the best thing to check is for a chip in your car key, open up your key and look for a small grey chunk of metal, its no bigger than half of your little finger nail, that is the immobiliser chip.
have you checked all the fuses?
