There have been a handful of times when I've pushed the key in to start the (3.0 TDi) engine, with the gears in neutral and the clutch depressed, but it has not attempted to start. It does the 'sweep the dial' thing, but doesn't try to fire up the engine. Any idea why this could be? What's it objecting to?

Normally this is no big problem, but one occasion was when I stalled at the lights, and a quick restart there is pretty obligatory.

Speedy replies guys. Thanks.

I have seen it tell me to 'press clutch pedal to start' or similar (when I forgot to). I didn't see this message on these occasions though.

Ah, penny's just dropped! Maybe the 'press clutch' message only appears if one repeatedly pushes the key in in a short period, and it then works out you may be struggling and drops you a hint.
