Natural cut off switch. Try moving the gear shift as you have the key turned all the way to start.

Good news, all sorted. The diagnostic tool showed the cam switch was the problem so was replaced but did not sort the non-starting . A lot of frustrating diagnostics by the mechanic as we eliminated fuel - pump and injectors, and ignition as the cause. Combustion due to the cam was the cause of the non- starting issue and was not considered at first at the cam belt had been replaced by a garage. It was clear the cam had jumped out of alignment and as soon as it was remediated the car started and is running nicely. By the way replacing a fuel pump is a doddle even for someone like me so save money and do it yourself.Appreciate the blog advice.
