Alternator belt snapped, not a big problem as had got new battery in about a week previos so thought it would be fine for a few days until I got mechanic to replace belt. However on third night parked it up and next morning went to start and not enough power to start. Car sat for about a week until mechanic called, he replaced both the alt belt and power steering belt but when tried to jump start it would start for about 5 seconds then die out, a dashboard light of a car and a key sign show up after this. He has checked all fuel lines and pumps and all seems fine. He is wondering if its thrown off some immobiliser or timer from having no power for a week. Strange thing is it was driving fine the night before it wouldnt start.
