I have a 2006 Vauxhall astra 1.7 cdti it came to me with alternator

Customer Question

I have a 2006 Vauxhall astra 1.7 cdti it came to me with alternator failure but it wouldn't jump start so i replaced battery, alternator, and starter and it still doesn't start. It turns over but won't fire. Vauxhall told me the key code and immobiliser had lost the codes we have re programmed them and still doesn't want to start. Do you have any ideas to which could be the problem causing it not to start. Thanks

Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

My name is MIKE - Im happy to help you with this...

How exactly have you "reprogrammed them"...?

When you try to start the engine now - do you get any fault lights on / flashing etc?
