    VZ Clubby cranks fires and then shuts down

    Hi all. New more serious problem with my rig now. Drove the car no issues, called into the shops car started and ran fine. Drove 20m stopped at stop sign and car spluttered and stalled (auto). Tried to restart and engine cranked started then stalled. Got the car towed home and it won't run at all. Fuel pump is running, tried unlock, lock and unlock again. Had the battery disconnected last night reconnected it this morning same problem. Any ideas??

    I don't have a tech 2 or scan tool so I don't know if there are any codes.

    I'm thinking I might have a dose of dodgey fuel. Will drain the filter and see if there is heavy water contamination

    I think you may need a new key and an immobiliser relearn

    Either a really dodgy ground somewhere or as Mick says, likely the key. Do you have another spare you can try? Or even try putting the key in 180 the other way if you always put it in the same way. Clean the contact ring on the ignition and the point on the key up. And it would likely be worth taking the trim off the steering column to get to the back of the ignition barrel and making sure all the wiring is still good, tight etc and the ground point there is good.
