Q: car wont start

asked by on

Won't start at all but central locking n alarm works

You should have the fuel pressure checked and the engine checked for spark. If you are missing one of these, it will not start.

The year, make and model of your vehicle would be needed for a more in-depth diagnostic. A qualified technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the no start condition.
