    Default Starting problem

    My nine month old 1.9 CDTi Signum has failed to start on three occasions. Electrics seem to be fine but turn the key and nothing happens - no starter or engine at all. On turning off the engine before the problem there has been a warning buzzer which stops when the key is put back in.

    On one of these occasions the spanner symbol came on and the car lost power when driving at about 35 - wouldn't rev at all. When coming to a stop and turning off it then would not start again.

    Any ideas?

    need to get the fault codes read fella if its not even turning over is there a padlock symbol in the dash display lit up? spanner symbol and 'limp mode' means there was a problem warranting emergency engine restrictions to be put in place to avoid any/futher damage but the next step for you is to get the fault codes read. either a trip to the stealers or a good indie garage.

    You should be taking it back to the Stealers if its under 3 years old and less than 60k on it. Let them sort it out mate
