    Default 2006 L322 wont start, key turns but engine doesn't

    I have a 2006 Vogue 3.0 diesel, the car has done 80,000 miles, and is well serviced. Recently the car has started doing this not starting. When you open the car it opens as normal, put the key in the ignition and turn it to the on position, the steering wheel moves to position, auto lights come on, sat nav powers up, and heater inside comes on, but the engine does not turn over. If you listen carefully to the ignition u can help a very faint beep beep beep, and then it stops. After taking the key in and out 4 or 5 times, and shaking it about in the ignition, the vehicle starts. Does this seem to be a problem with ignition barrels? Has anybody else seen this? Please let me know. Thanks in advance!

    As nobody else has replied, I'll give it a go. There have been reports of various electrical faults on the L322 that have been cured by cleaning the contacts on the ignition switch. Whether this is the contacts inside the switch itself or where the loom plugs into the switch I have no idea. But for the cost of a can of switch contact cleaner (do not try to use WD40!) it has got to be worth a go.

    Have renewed several due to intermitent non start etc.internal connections very crude for such an expensive vehicle,cleaning never worked for us couldnt realy see much wrong with the old ones but a replacement always worked.

    I believe they are saying to clean or best replace this part no.YXB000080 or you can see it on this link "ignition switch contacts housing"
