    Posted: 18 Jun 2017 at 7:57am
can anyone tell me please is there an inertia cut off on a 2016 Picanto 1?
I recently had someone reverse into mine (and then drive off). The damage was realty minor apart from breaking the under bonnet fusebox.
I've swapped the fusebox and everything electrical works fine apart from the engine will not crank over. Ignition lights all come on but when you turn the key to start it nothing happens?
There is an orange key light on the dashboard display.
Is the immobiliser not disarming?
Or is there an inertia switch that has been triggered in the bump that now needs to be reset?
Any help greatly appreciated please :-)

I am not certain but I don't think the immobiliser affects the engine cranking, I think it just disables the ignition but someone will tell me if I am wrong.

A couple of years ago my daughter's 2009 Picanto wouldn't crank over and it turned out to be a bad connection on the cable to the starter motor solenoid.

I hope I am not teaching you how to "suck eggs" here and it might be a long shot.
Have you checked the relay for the starter solenoid in the new fusebox? Does it click when you try to start the car? If it isn't doesn't it might be faulty, check the live side connection to see if it is getting current and try swapping it for another one. If it does click check to see if there is a current at the solenoid connection on the starter motor.

It's a different model to my daughter's car so I wouldn't know which is the starter relay but there is probably a diagram on the inside of the fusebox cover showing this info. There is on my daughter's car anyway.
