Hi,
Right i've had the car for 6 months now without any starting issues. I wired in my new Optimate 4 charger on Xmas day and left it a couple of days to top up. I decided to get the charger because the car can be left for 1 - 2 weeks without being used.
Last night I went to start the car and nothing, all the ign lights come on aswell as the intelligent key warning light. When I switch off the ign all the lights go out except the intelligent warning light, that stays on for a few seconds more.

The battery is fully charged.
The key battery has been changed and also tried in the slot.
Checked all the fuses.
I've removed the plug to the steering lock device several times.
steering lock does engage and disengage.

I suspect the steering lock is at fault as it is a known issue. Suppose to be going away in it tomorrow so if you have any other ideas I could try before it has to go HPC.

Thanks Richard

TBH mate you dont really need the charger.

I leave my car you 4/5 weeks untouched when I'm offshore and it starts up no problems after that

Hi, after a couple of weeks it's a bit sluggish, thats the reason I got it.

I started my GTR today just after 2 weeks and it fired up perfectly. I don't think a charger is necessary if you're only leaving it standing for a couple of weeks.

Poor man I will slate you for buying a charger and not help you like the other members p.s I will search for a thread but if its what I think it's very very expensive to fix!

Hi, yes checked all the fuses. The RAC have been out prior to it being taken to HPC on Monday, he didn't have any luck. I'm not convinced it's the steering lock as it engages and disengages without a problem.

same issue as mine.

You need to remove the wire plug of the steering lock.

Do this:

Push the start button and pull and push the plug in and out.

Then you hear krrrrr and on contact :D

I've tried taken the plug in and out but not pressed the button at the same time, but i'll give it a go
Were all the ignition warning lights coming on for you?
I presume your steering lock wasn't disengaging properly?
Mine appears to be engaging and disengaging properly.

Thanks for your help anyway

just tried pulling the plug in and out while pressing the start button, still no luck.
Intelligent key warning light stays on for about 18 seconds after the ign has been switched off.

Try to move the steering wheel position to all positions and try again.

Mine was moved hence the "steering lock problem strikes again" came.

Mine Key light stays on the whole night if I have this problem.

Just checked for any DCTs through my Ecutek cable.

BCM (body control module)
B2609
B2612
B2617

IPDM (intelligence power distribution module)
B210A
B210E

Update
managed to clear all but BCM B2617
B2617 STARTER RELAY
CIRC
An immediate operation of starter relay is requested by BCM, but there is no response for more than
1 second
***8226; Harness or connectors
(Starter relay circuit is open or shorted) ***8226; IPDM E/R

Spoke to litchfields a couple of days ago and he suggested checking the fuses which are ok. It's going to HPC on Monday but i'm trying my hardest to get to the bottom of it before then.

I have B2607 and still works.

I guess replacing the steering lock is the only option now?

Please keep updating on this because, mine sometimes love to strike.
