Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

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

Can you tell me how / when this all started to happen... ie, was it a sudden or gradual thing etc ?

What is the mileage on the car ?

What is its service /recent repair history ? and when, at what mileage & date was the last service done ?

Are you saying that when it plays up, it will not start on the key - but will always start with a tow ?

When you are driving, are the any fault lights on?

Have you had any plug in diagnostic tests done at all?

Have any other parts been replaced at all in a bid to cure this?

Rgds, MIKE.............................
