S2 exige not starting...
I’m the owner of a ‘10 exige. It’s an absolute joy to drive but I have these forums to thank for me being able to fix the few mechanical issues it’s brought up along the way.
For the last few days I have been struggling with a new problem, which today came to a tee I unfortunately can’t find a fix for!
I initially noticed the car not starting when pushing the starter button. Activating and deactivating the immobiliser a few times, and trying the starter button a few times would fix the issue. Over the next few days this progressed, to me being required to activate/deactivate the immobiliser >10 times, with multiple pushes of the starter button until eventually she decided to start.
Today, no matter what I try, she won’t start. I push the button and there’s nothing, no “click” as you would typically get from the starter motor when the battery is insuficiently charged. Nothing but silence.
I’ve read multiple people have had issues with either the starter button itself or the immobiliser circuit. My question is, the starter button is still illuminated implying current running through it. As such I’d assume it wasn’t faulty. Is this a fair assumption? And that being the case the issue lies elsewhere?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
