    Car will not start and run., and has just suddenly happened, stopped the car one day and it would not start the next.
    The starter motor turns so I assume it is not caused by the imobiliser cutting the fuel supply.
    When I try to start the car it partially fires but will not run, and black smoke is coming from exhaust.
    The warning light for "water in diesel" on the dash illuminates when trying to start the car.
    I have removed the fuel filter/water trap, drained the filter housing (no signs of water) re-fitted the filter and primed fuel to top of filter cover, but warning light is still on.
    Any thoughts on what the problem may be??
    Anyone know where the sensor is located that gives the signal to the dash fuel/water warning light.
    Any help would be appreciated
