    525tds starting problem

    Hi everyone, have come to start my tds yesterday to no avail. as usual, i let the glow plug light go out and the car just sat turning the engine over but not firing. this only started yesterday. i thought it may be something to do with the immobiliser, but now am not too sure. i thought this because the battery in the fob was running low and would intermittently lock the car using the buttons but would unlock the car and the boot everytime. i have changed the battery in the fob and it now functions properly everytime, which ever button you press. problem is the car still will not start. i have plugged the diagnostic scanner in and it had 2 errors on the immobiliser which i have cleared and are no longer showing. if i press the throttle peddle down while turning the engine, it eventually fires but a minute later it cuts off again. at a loose end without the car so any help is appreciated. i thought it may be the fuel pump in the tank but i can see fuel running through the clear pipe on the fuel filter?? could it still be the fuel pump or could it be the ignition switch. this has only happened since the fob wouldnt lock the car yesterday. i locked it with the key and then when i came to use it it unlocked with the fob???

    Passenger Side Electric Window

    Another problem with my 525. Had some work done on the passenger side sill which meant having the seat out and the carpets lifted as well as moving the wires closer to the centre console. also had the door card off on that side as well. problem is now the electric window doesnt work. the only things that were disconnected from the door was the puddle light and the electric window switch. the window worked before the work was done and have since removed the seat and carpet again and cant see any reason why it should not work. can someone help me please. its driving me mad.

    525 TDS Parking Brake Cable

    tried a screw driver and prizing it out with no luck. ended up having to drill it out with my air drill.
