Not starting at all, all lights are flashing and binging, lights and wipers work fine though… literally working one minute stopped working the next time starting (5 min later).

No, we think it’s the immobiliser

If immobiliser on most cars you get a warning light . Have you checked battery voltage , tried a jump start ? The fact that the lights and wipers work fine means nothing as they take little power to operate compared to starting car

Tried a jump start tried everything like a push start and all, but got nothing back. I’m going to try the spare key and see what happens fingers crossed, maybe it’s a faulty battery in the key or something?

The battery is gone voltage wise too
