Hi all, parked my car up in town earlier, and when I returned it wouldn't turn over, the battery is fine, the immobiliser isn't bleeping to say it's still on but it does seem like it, when I turn the key to start it does take power as the dash lights dim slightly, I have checked all the fuses for the ecu e.t.c, but I'm at a loss, it has done a similar thing a couple of times before, before when ive turned the key to start position it hasn't turned over straight away, and if I held it there for about 3 seconds it would all of a sudden start turning over, but this time nothings happening, I've even tried disconnecting the battery, any help would be appreciated, thanks.

hi, check the battery and starter connections, have you tried bump starting it, if all the connections are fine and it will bump start, and the battery is ok, it sounds like the starter/solenoid

Sounds like you have a broken plate in the battery or a duff starter.
