When the key is turned to the start position, the current passes through the ignition switch, down the heavy yellow wire, to the junction with the wiring loom, but does not reach the solenoid on the starter. The wire is purple when it gets to the solenoid, the wiring diagram says it changes to purple after it goes through the anti theft moidule. If the key is on and the solenoid is activated remotely, the car runs for about 2 to 3 seconds, then dies. Where is the module actually located and how

Hi, Oil level OK, Quality of oil uncertain, changed 4 months ago Just happened : You drive a mile, then it is like the gearbox is no longer connected, and you feel like in neutral mode.
