    Question Advice needed with daughters Astra

    Guys

    My 20yr old daughter has just bought a 54 plate 1.6 astra club.
    Yesterday when I tried to start the car all the ignition lights worked but the car wouldnt turn over.
    After trying for about 5 mins the car started and ran as normal but the dreaded management light was on and still is!!!
    She says it did the same this morning, Im thinking immobilizer?
    Any ideas?
    It was a private sale so no warranty!

    Do a hard reset with the battery off for half an hour or so, it is linked to the immobiliser, I had it on my wifes car once before she got used to the starting procedure and has been totally fine since.

    Doubt if the immobiliser would throw upthe management light, have you checked the obvious like the battery,starter motor.
    Just a thought.

    When it happened to Esther it was at the Supermarket she unlocked the car loaded the shopping walked away to return the trolley but didn't lock the car, returned and apart from ign lights car was dead!
    She got back out to phone me, but thought to lock the car, then out of frustration tried it again and VROOM! so to speak
    does that scenario sound familiar to you?

    A long shot but when you turn the ignition on and the car doesn't start does the engine management light illuminate then, along with the other lights?
