Hello People

I'm new to the forum and really need some advice please.Dont know if i'm in the right place but howsever here goes.
My wifes 1999 Micra wouldn't start today after a short run into town.There is no spark and it's equipped with a Nissan anti theft system (immobiliser) ,which i think may be the problem...is this likely ?.If so is there anything i can do without having to hand over a bunch of money to the garage ?.It's Sunday tomorrow so if i knew what to try i'd have a go at it.
Many thanks for any advice received........ :cheers:

you may have some trouble finding help for a micra here... not too many members with them i bet... what kind of engine is in the car, how big etc? maybe we can try and diagnose the problem... does it turn over at all, any lights or sounds?

I never do ....to her face :)
Anyway for anyone interested .i towed it to the garage and they couldn't find the problem either.....they ended up replacing the whole distributor unit (which they say is a sealed unit) €700 for a new one but managed to get a 2nd hand one for €75.......they charged vat on it though and also charged to €60 to fit it....is there any such thing as an honest garage ??????? :thumbdwn:

Actually, 700 euros is about 910-920 dollars...

By the way, distributor to E15ET engine would have cost 664 euros here in Finland, but I also managed to get second hand part - by 50 euros...
Now my E15ET Micra is running well again :)
