My seat Ibiza s 1.4 cut out in the wet ain't started since iv been told there is no compression wen I'm turning the key its like it ain't catching

vehicles need three things to run. Spark / Fuel / and Compression. If it's true that there is no compression, the engine will not start. Run a compression test and verify there is compression. This is always the first thing you should do when diagnosing why an engine wont start.Good luck and most of all have fun and don't give up

Turn on the key and listen by the fuel tank for the fuel pump to hum. A common problem is low fuel pressure. It will build pressure when the key is turned, use that fuel, and then the pressure drops. Kind of like when you're using a squirt gun that's getting empty.

I hav the keys from the old car and the speedometer do i still have to take it to the dealer to get pass the security problm i replaced the chips in the keys but my stereo says locked the motor turns but...

It is possible IF you have the ORIGINAL keys to the car to read the resistance of the original key, use Radio Shack resistors and build an IN-LINE resistor to replace the key's requirement to have the chip. After you know the correct resistance for your car, purchase enough resistors to wire in-line to create the right resistance, then in the steering column you will find two micro-sized wires, usually yellow (DO NOT CUT the slightly heavier Air Bag yellow wires). Cut the two yellow micro-sized wires wire your homemade resistor in line between them, tape all of your wiring up good and try to start it... As far as the dash goes, yes you should still have to go to a dealer to reprogram the computer..., You might just consider takng it in anyhow and doing it right.

1995 Golf gti cuts out, wont start after. Runs fine one day, another cuts out constantly. Not ECU relay or fuel pump relay

Could be the ignition coil. Get a spray bottle and put some soapy water in it and spray the wires 7 coil while the engine is running. You will find your problem.

Hi please help i have a peugeot 406 hdi i have had nothing but problems with the fuel system first i changed the bosch pump in the tank i then changed the high pressure pump and the car run lovely for one...

Try this but the fault I have is intermittent so may take a bit to work out - switch off everything in the car so there is no noise. Turn on ingnition (do not start) and listen for the sound of of the fuel pump below the rear seat - behind the drivers seat. The pump should run for about 5 - 10 sec then shut off, it may work but if you cannot hear it it may be an ECU issue. If it does run start the car and drive it until it stops again, switch the ignition on/off and listen for the pump running. if you can confirm that the pump is running intermittently you have the same ECU problem I have. The official solution is to replace the ECU - ££££££. The low cost alternate is to run a wire from the ingnition controlled feed at rear of the radio and connect to the pump feed at the fuel tank, ensure a correct rated fuse is installed somewhere along the wire. There is a least one issue with this - if the ignition is on the pump is running, so not a good idea to sit with the key turned to listen to the radio.
