are you 100% sure all the earths are on, try putting a jump lead from the bellhousing on the gearbox to the EARTH on the battery.

Also check the LED on the dash when you put the key in and turn the ign on, see if it is still flashing

they mean uch, it is the central electronic controller in the passengers footwell. flashing red light in dash says something is wrong with your immobiliser! you are using your old ECU?
 
  1.2 16v Extream, Black
AYeh its the old one on it I fought it would keep all the codes the same if I put that one back on

Could a reprogram of the immobilizer poss sort it coz the battery was dead for bout 3week waitin for the new engine to arrive ??

How easy is it to accsess the uch?? To make sure all wires look properly connected??

yer fast flash means there some sort of immobiliser problem, but have seen it with flat battery problems before too, is the batt fully charged?

rite got car back to my nans house now and have had chance to have a look over it when i stick the key in the ignition and turn it up to the 2nd notch a red relay under the bonnet next to the fuses on the front right which is buzzing does anyone no wat this is controling or being controled by, i have looked in the hayns manual and i possiabley think it the starter realy which is controled by the ecu so would a immobilizer reset do it?? please any help would be really greatful :D many thanks chris
 
lol ;) Every time we change the D4F engine we have to resync the key with the car


Hold down the centre locking button and while still holding it turn the ignition key on (not start).
Stop all that then take key out and with out pressing any buttons try and start the car
Then try start the car ;)

does it sound likely that it was this causing that relay to buzz??
