Hey, new user here.

Just looking for some advice on my RCZ.

Drove to the shop this morning, started fine, stopped at shop and now it won't start.

Battery seems okay, tried bump start - didin't work, tried jump start - didn't work and have also tried the BSI reset. Car is turning over but just wont start (have tried spare key). Spolier is stuck in open position, so thinking I have some sort of electrical or imobliser problem? Any advice or help would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks.

Have you tried using the spare key?

Maybe the fuel pump, it is a known issue, but not all that regular. If the HP fuel pump has given up totally, maybe there is no fuel getting to the engine - so would turn over but not start.

Do you have any errors showing?

Called out the AA, guy was a Peugeot mechanic and seemed to kmow his stuff. He was sure it's the fuel pump, car is in garage now for repair.

Thanks for the help.
