    Do you have a second key fob?
    The key fob has a re chargeable battery on it which is charged when it is in the dash, but the batteries only have so much life in them and could need replacement.

    I think you need to start a process of eliminating possible problems, probably the battery would be next call, it would be strange if both keys suddenly developed a fault.
    Unfortunately the electronics are complex and you might need the help of someone who has a device to access the ECU.

    Do you need to press the clutch pedal to start? My auto needs the brake.
    Shouldn't block the auxiliary ignition from working but may be worth looking at the clutch switch and taking it out of the equation.

    looking at a pic on eBay there's a switch right at the top. Whether that's the right one I don't know. if its just open and close switch you could short it out, but try and get a definitive answer first on the operation.

    I'm guessing the engine isn't cranking?
    The clutch pedal inhibitor switch is a good place to start.

    From seeing what goes through here and other forums, the steering lock is the usual culpret for these non-starts - usually accompanied by a message on the dash saying the steering lock hasn't been released. Sometimes it the steering lock itself. Other times changing (the seemingly healthy) battery (so a boot pack isn't really anything to go by) resolves it, other times a ECU software update and other seemingly unrelated reasons. Would be worth having a look into it I think.

    When you say no lights, I assume the dash display doesn't power up at all?

    If so try turning the steering wheel to help it unlock if its turned and stressed, when putting the fob key in and pressing start.

    He should get a dash display regradless of pedals.
