Our car ran out of petrol on the side of the road. We filled it up but now it won't start. We tried turning it on to Reds and off again a few times but still won't start. Can anyone help please???!

Try pulling out the fuel relay start it-should hopefully displace the air trapped in the fuel rail-put relay back in and see if it starts.

If it still won't start, fuel filter might be completely blocked as it may have picked up dirt seeing as you ran it empty.

have you fixed this problem ??

make sure interior light works
check for spark - check crank sensor if no spark
does smartlock light come on and go out when ignition turned on ?
can you hear fuel pump work ?
