CIVIC STOLEN! Now it wont start
To cut a long story short my 08 1.8 civic was stolen using the key.
The police found the car locked and parked less than a mile away from my home. I took my other key to go and recover the car but it would not start.
It sounded like the battery had completely died so I phoned the RAC to come and jump it.
The RAC guy tried jump starting it but it will only turn over and not start. We topped the fuel up as it was low, He ran a diagnostics on it checked some fuses etc but could not get it to start.
I had the car towed and have been trying to get it started. I have charged the battery. The key seems to work fine but the car just turns over and won't start.
The car had a light scrape on the front bumper so had been in a bit of a knock. They had pulled off my aftermarket mic that had a wire running down the front pillar and under the dash (nothing else was tampered with or stolen)
THINGS I HAVE ALREADY CHECKED:
There is no green flashing key light on the dash.
I have checked the fuel cut off switch, I thought that was going to be the issue as the mic wire ran past this switch but it is fine.
I have scanned the car with a Bluetooth ODB adapter but no codes are showing.
Does anyone have any Ideas?
Thanks in advance.
