    Default 306 won't start

    Bought a 2001 306 rallye for my daughter a few weeks ago. No problems with it until today when I get a phone call saying that it won't start. Sounds like the immobiliser. Are they a problem? How easy to replace/bypass?

    you may wish to have a look at my thread on the same issue except ours konked while driving - a little unobtanium split seal in the fuel pump

    when you say won't start do you mean won't turn over or turns but won't fire up?

    Ask them to turn on the headlights and put them on high beam. Are they as bright as they should be ?

    If not, it's the battery.

    Yes, a sticky starter solenoid - a length of broom handle though the inlet manifold is good for tapping it :-) Voice of experience...
