Altea won't fire up

Postby Adrianw on Sun Jun 07, 2020 10:54 am

Hi, need some help please. 2005 Altea 2.0 Sport tdi, 207k on the clock, fsh. Normally fires instantly, but twice recently has failed to fire up when cranking, not even a cough until the battery dies. In desperation I jumped it from my wife's car, carried on cranking and after a minutes or two, coughed once or twice and reluctantly fired up. Runs fine. No pattern to the fails, first time car was left for five days, second fail was after being driven the previous day. Fuel pump fine, filter clean, no fault codes showing up. Help, my mechanic is stumped too!
Thanks, Ade.
