    mk 3 17.7tds wont start

    hiya all im new here so forgive my not knowing
    my sister has a mk3 1.7 tds 1995 reg (isuzu engine)
    she had the car broken into and they have tried to hotwire it but got disturbed.
    now she cant get the car to start it winds over but doesnt fire.
    i have read about immobilisers on here but am not sure if this car has one.
    it just has a standard key with a led light in it. it doesnt have remote central locking.
    i am visiting her in a couple of weeks and will have a look but just need as much info as possible
    ie if it does have the immobiliser and if so does it just stop it starting but allows the engine to turn over
    and what signals on what wires to i need to get the engine to start
    thanks for any help

    Yes it does have an immobiliser. Theres a tiny chip inside the ignition key, and a signal receiver around the ignition barrel.
    Chances are they have broken/moved the receiver so it now no longer picks up the chips signal.....
    Is the ignition barrel damaged/smashed?

    i think it may be damaged not too sure as i havent seen the car yet.
    can the signal receiver be swapped off another car? or is it coded to the car? they have another car which can be used as a donor but not sure when bits are coded to what

    just an update the receiver seems to be damaged. can another receiver be fitted to the barrel to make it work or will it require recoding?
