Question about Vauxhall Astra
Hi I have a Opel Astra 1.6 16v, the car has all power with all voltage but when I turn the key to start the car nothing happens but yet all the lights are on, the engine light has been on for a few weeks too. Please help!
The engine light has been an indication you may have a "battery charging problem"...This could be a bad battery, bad alternator, or just dirty battery post connections (or loose) Try the cleaning and tightening of the posts first...(least costly) dirty posts will allow the lights etc to work, but do not allow the full current needed to turn the starter...Hope this helps.

HI, I'm reading your problem,
Let me explain something about your car.
2005 Ford Taurus, The key on that car has Chip inside of the key and receiver on the ignition switch,
Check if the key you are trying to use is Black and has a plastic head.
If not you need a key with that characteristics.
But if you have the right key, Remenber if you had drop on the floor, or hit with something,
Because some times they come damaged, with insignificat thins.
Remenber if you left the key close to a magnets like speakers.
If nothing aply at your case, you need to call a place Aloha Smith, they have the computer to program or reprogarm your key. IF not you can't start your car.
OK.. I hope this information work for you.
Thank's for submit yous question on fixya.com

first of all, check your code to see what the car computer shows. To do that , insert the key in the ignition and switch it on three time within 2 seconds and the third time live the key in the on position. All the instrument panel lights will lite and the oddometer will display the fault code that may br the cause for your car not starting. goood luck.

It sounds like this could be an immobilizer problem, if the red alarm LED is permanently on when you have the ignition is on this is defiantly the problem. You will need to get the key/fob reprogrammed to overcome this.
