I´ve had my Azure for one year. Suddenly it began to give me starting problems. It stops during a drive. It fails to start often. Now it won't start at all. I've checked all fuses, contactors and so on. There is absolutely no spark when checking the plugs. Any ideas, everything is appreciated.

Your car has individual coils that supply sparks to each spark plug. If all of them are not sparking then it makes diagnosing the problem easier and we may have several issues to consider. I am not the best person to offer advice although I have the same car as you do.
First of all are all the connectors in the engine compartment making good contact? secondly I would check the ignition switch which is a flimsy plastic thing and that has already failed on one of my cars. A third thing to look at is the crank position sensor. Fourthly I would look to see if the alarm system is working properly and the immobiliser hasn't locked out the ignition.

If it is pre 21 st century it will have ZETEC EMS3 digital engine management system. Zetec/BMW/Mercedes Forums might be good place to start.
When it cut out on road, did it "feel" instant (as ignition) or as if running out of fuel. Injection cars won't feel like old carb. cars when running out of fuel but may take bit longer to cut than ignition. Thinking of fuel pump as well as ignition?
