    Won't start after flat battery???

    Had a flat battery after boot lid wasn't shut properly at night. Jumped it next day and it struggled to start but did eventually. Used it a few times throughout the day with no problems. The following morning the battery was flat again for no apparent reason. Tried jumping it again but nothing, got power to everything, starter motor turning but not firing and no petrol fumes. Definately got fuel. Is there a fuel cut off or is immobiliser on??
    Please help
    Thanks in advance
    Ian

    Welcome Ian

    The MK4's have a immobiliser and when this isn't working the spannner light will flash

    It shouldn;t need resetting and can only be programmed by vauxhall with your security code
