wont start:(

was out lastnight, stopped to tlak to friends turned car off.

but nooooo..... car wouldnt start again , electrics all work, when turning the ignition nothing happens at all, all the lights on the dash come on as normal no warning lights or that?

it aint feeding power to the engine?

not that gd with cars dunno where the spark plugs r in a mk2 8v elx.

what do you all think , spark plugs, starter motor, ecu?

Bumped started it no bother but when i got home tried to start it again wouldnt start!

Almost sounds like the starter motor to me - especially if the rest of the car gets power and it will start on a bump start!

When you turn the key to stage III on the ignition, do you hear a faint whirr or click?

i think it could be your battery thats fcuked

when you try to start it do the lights on the dash go dim or go out if so it could well be your battery.

you can get a battery for about £40 from a motor factors.

If it is making a whirring, or clicking noise when you try to start up it is almost certainly your starter motor is sticking, so it cannot engage onto the flywheel to start up the engine, what to do is either bump start your car, or get a metal rod of some sort put it on the housing for the starter motor and gently tap the rod with a hammer, it may shock it loose.

When you turn ignition does starter make any noise? if not does the lights on the dash dull down? if neither of this happens check to see if all wires are still attached to starter. If all wires still attached sounds like your starters goosed.

I wouldnt have thought it would be the starter motor you managed to jump start it......

I agree with Fee. Sounds like a dodgy battery or loose connection somewhere.

You can jump start a car with a dodgy starter, my starter would not engage last year, and thats all i did until i replaced it.
