If you put the hazards on, then turn them off while its happening does it stop it?

hazards work fine everything else runs fine just won't start, done ecu selftest that comes up negative for problems but it just won't start and everytime i turn the key to on when reconnecting the battery it flickers the left handside indicator for about 3 or 4 flashes and then it doesnt come on after that

Well, then we're having the same problem, except Ive completely stripped the interior out of my ED and thats whats caused it because it worked before, Im leaning towards a faulty smartlock or bem module. Your fuel pump wouldnt be constantly on all the time too would it?

Ok then probably not exactly the same problem. Let me know what you find. Do you have an aftermarket alarm?

well while the key is in cranking position just keep holding it there while tapping the dash above handbrake, start hitting harder if it doesnt do anything. Very well could be the contact in the indicator itself but I doubt it.
