I had this problem and again it was narrowed down to the immobiliser. however it wasnt exactly the immobiliser it was the immobiliser coil. it sits around the key slot and it is the radio part that check the chip inside the key. got mine replaced and it starts first time every time now. it cost £35 to replace.

immobilizer may not be the cause of no start and ripping one out without know all th ewires ti disconnect gets you a whole lot more issues

flat key fob or chip battery
possible fuel pump or spark issue

can you hear the in tank electric fuel pump pumping as you crank

you can go old school and check if you have fuel to the injectors and spark to the plugs as you crank

if the engine check light is on the engine computer will have fault codes showing you the cause of the no start

How to bleed a diesel bus engine

there will be a small hand pump either on the diesel pump or on the filter. bleed the filter out first and then open the bleed screws on the pump and pump until you get straight fuel., The pump may requiring unscrewing the handle/knob first so that you can move it up and down to pump. When finished remember to re screw it back down. crack the injector lines and turn engine over until you get drips of fuel from the nuts. continue to turn over the engine while tightening the nuts and it should start before you have finished with the nuts.

My 2002 chev. diesel truck turns over but wont start, new filter

anytime you change the filter in a diesel you have to bleed the air out of the fuel system. The pump won't auto bleed the fuel system for you. every place in the fuel system that has a flare type connection needs to be bleed, start at the connection closest to the tank, loosen the connection and then crank the engine until you see diesel fuel drips from that connection. Tighten the connection while the engine is still cranking. Move to the next connection that is going toward the engine. Continue on in that manner toward the engine until you reach the injector pump/injector. Once you reach the injector pump be VERY aware that the fuel is at VERY high pressure. Do NOT put your body parts in the stream of high pressure diesel fuel. It could kill or injure you! Once you bleed all the way to the injector pump/ injector, the truck SHOULD start. Do not bleed after the injector pump because of the pressure involved, it is WAY too dangerous.

Good luck!

What is the fuel pressure from the main pump to the engine.trying to be certain that my fuel have the require pressure for starting

Is the 30 ltr engine diesel? If so what was the reason and changed the Injectors? Did you follow the correct procedure to renew the injectors? This engine has two oil pumps. One is for the engine and the second one is the high pressure for the injection cranking system. On starting the engine and trying to start are you sure you receive the correct oil pressure to cause the injectors to open? If everything is okey,go to crank or cam sensor or even to the accelerator pedal.Also is better to clean the throttle body from any dirt. Use a scanner to give you the fault .Also bear in mind that these vehicles are fitted with the following secret,if you have a blown brake lights fuse or brake lights bulbs will not start,just engine turn and no engine run. It is the immobilizer activation. Do not over 32 times crank start otherwise you will loose ecu.

97 f150 4.6 wont start after it stalled due to the ac pump seizing up and causeing the engine to stall

Was the battery disconnected when the pump was replaced. It sounds like the anti-theft immobilizer needs re-pairing to the key.

Is the car diesel or petrol?

If a diesel, you might check the diesel pump drive belt (at the right side of engine when looking at the engine from front of car). It's possible the teeth on the belt have stripped and put the pump timing out. An alternative may be a "stop solenoid" failure. The solenoid stops diesel getting to the injectors when the "ignition" is turned off and "stalls" the engine.

I don't know if the injector pump on a petrol engine has a similar setup as a diesel but it might be worth checking.
