Ireland Yet Another Newb

Hi guys,

I have been on her since i bought my first mini about 2months ago but only getting around to saying hello now.

So i bought a r53 cooper s and i love it, but it let me down today. I went for two short drives with the final one being my local tescos. Came back out to the car unlocked it using the button on the key and the car has refused to start. It turns over but wont fire.

At first i figured it was the immobilizer so i disconnected the battery, left it for an hour and went back to and still the same problem.

Then i checked all the fuses, not a single one burnt out.

Decided to check the fuel pump filter and that seemed fine, checked the fuel line running from the pump and that was fine too. The fuel lines coming from the engine seemed very dry.

can anyone help me with this?
