Smile rover 45

hi everybody, I'm new to the site.
I have a problem with my rover 45, it unlocks and locks with the fob but it wont star with the key, it doesn't even click or anything.
the dash lights come on, and the immobiliser light is lit, also the electric widows don't work now.
I've heard a lot about pektron relay's and about replacing them but I not sure whether its them or not, so I don't want to take out the scu if I don't have to.
any advice would be much appreciated.

Sounds like your battery is duff or you have an earth failure.

Does the fuel pump prime when you turn the key to pos II?

Hi and welcome to the forum

What year is your car?
Does it have a square Lucas fob or a round Pektron one?
Do the dash lights dim when you try to start it?
