Sorted today, it was my first guess of the a,arm and immobiliser, not because of low fob batteries but due to it needing resetting for whatever reason it had decided.
I followed advice on here and from the alarm company successors as the original business was taken over by Scorpion and Sigma. Very helpful technician there who made a few suggestions which reinforced / echoed advice on here and our best friend Mr Google.
Fold back the carpet in front of the left hand seat, there is a metal plate below it, secured by cross head screws.
Unscrew and lift that up so it is easy to hear the fuel lift up (low pressure) pump as it primes the system.
Turn on the ignition and listen.....
The pump should be heard running for about 20s. If it cannot be heard, there is a fault there, if it does not cut off there is a fault downstream or perhaps the filter is blocked.
Once that was heard, I reset the alarm system - great fun with multiple moves.
Then try starting and it did 😁.
That has probably savad a small fortune for us and our insurance company.......
Thanks for all the suggestions. According to the technician that I spoke to, the inertia fuel cut off, designed to cut the fuel in the case of a shunt, fails even if the door is slammed apparently, some seem to be more sensitive than others, so just be aware - I had never heard of such a gizmo before.... 🤔
Any typo that I make means the errorists win.
Any comments above are only MY OPINION
and should be read as that.
