My son has a 05 plate Corsa 1.2 16v SXi which refuses to start. He has tried to turn it over but it wont. He has tried jump starting but just doesn't want to know. Any ideas on what could be possibly wrong with it?

Check the cam belt .
It sounds as if the Timing belt has snapped and the Valves are hitting the piston.
Do you mean he's tried a "jump start" or a "bump start"?
If it won't turn over from a "jump start" with jump leads from another battery it could be a starter motor problem.
If it won't start from a "bump start" (pushing it or pulling it with another car) it could be as TWR has suggested.
do you get any noises when you try starting? Are there any lights on the dash? It might be an immobilizer fault .....
Did it start and run okay the last time it was used?
