You need to check fuel pressure at the fuel rail.if pressure is at spec. Check spark at the plugs. Also replace relay for fuel pump if it isn't working. Could be a bad new fuel pump. Pull the codes first.

The problem is likely in the headlight switch--either a failing contact or perhaps an issue with the connector at the switch. see wiring diagram below.

Sounds like an internal issue. I'd recommend having a pro look at it. Anyone else have some thoughts? Let us know the outcome, please.

the window fuse operates the auto window system. Taking it out will stop the window completely. You have a bad operating switch.

Hi. The correct pressure can be found on the sticker in the fuel flap. I dont know what your 80 is. If it is 225/40/18 then I think it is 2.4 bar.

it if fires with ether then the problem is no fuel to the injectors . You say there is fuel to the injectors so that means that if the injectors are electronically controlled then there is no control for the injectors . So that means something like immobiliser not operational, cam/crank position sensor fault . I would suggest that the data link for the scanner is not being connected correctly and that is why there is no reported codes.
