So, took it out yesterday worked fine. Moved it this morning a little bit, fine, Just tried starting it and it won't start.

I've tried jump leading it for a while, other car reving up and then me, seems to have made no difference.

Basically i try startin it. It turns over, and sounds like it wants to start but can't actually start. All my lgiths work fine so i'm presuming it's not a battery problem.

Not sure if its worth fixing or getting rid of the car thats all.

Any idea's?

if starter motor is turning the engine then it cant be battery or starter motor.

is the orange key code light remaining illuminated when you try to start?

have you tried using the red key?

I had similar. Some mornings took a while to start (starter motor/battery OK) and when it did there was a lot of vibration in low gear and a rumble at higher gears and higher than normal fuel use. After coil pack change works perfect - all vibration gone and no rumble (although now my odometer needs fixed - probably power surge).
