When you say it wont start do you mean it wont even turn over? If so it sounds like a dodgy starter motor connection, main earth lead to chasis connection or starter motor.

when you turn the ignition on the fuel pump will run for a few seconds to prime the system,if this is`nt happening could be a poor connection to fuel pump,check you are getting power to the fuel pump,could be that the ecu is not switching the fuel pump,would need to put on ids for diagnosis

check the fuel is getting to the fuel filter,its worth changing the fuel filter if it has`nt been done recently,making sure it is fitted the right way, and check the fuel lines for a blockage or restriction,might be worth putting some fuel system cleaner in tank to help clean any crap out of lines

I have just started to have problems starting my Mondeo 1.8LX. There is petrol in the tank and the battery is fully charged.

The faults are
Starter will not engage.
Engine will not start on bump or jump start.
All fuses are ok.
Frost and ice warnings are displayed.
Air temperate and milometer show bars.
All other electrics are ok.
