there could be one of many issues. What exactly did it do when you started it and did it do it again when you tried restarting it?

When i started it, the engine switched on and when i pressed the accelerator pedal it raved once and switched off. An auto mechanic looked at it and is saying the car has a shot wire hence why it is switching off. A fuse linked to the computer box is blowing once the engine is switched on.

Answer to you question, it kept on shutting off once swtched on and raved once.
