Hi, when I turn the key to start all the center consol/radio goes dead, dash lights stay on engine will not crank/turn over. New battery. If I connect a live to fuel pump so it is running all the time and then manualy close the starter relay it will start and run fine.
The engine/service lights are out.
The fuel pump will not prime either when the key is first turned.
I have replaced the ignition switch/all fuses.
Could it be a fusable link, if so where are they.
Please help, thanks, Matty.

Links are either at the starter motor or the fuse box underhood.

Check all other fuses as well with a test light.

Was the connector burnt on the ignition switch?

Hi, yes I have checked all fuses with a metre, all are okay.
The ignition switch was not burnt or damaged.
I have tested the relays, they are fine. If I put a live onto the field winding on the relays they will pull in and start/run.
I am not getting any power from the ignition switch/key to the main fuse box /relays underbonnet.
Could this be the alarm system.
There is a small red led on the dashboard which is always on! What is this for?
The key phob will lock/unlock the car and the service light goes out with no problem.
Where do I go next.
Thanks, Matty
