Re: Car not starting (battery fine)

It has had the problem of taking a few attempts of turning the car on before the engine would run without shutting down again for a couple of weeks (usually when I hadnít used the car for a long period of time such as overnight) Havenít attempted to listen for a solenoid click, if problem occurs again Iíll try listen for it and not sure what you mean by MIL. (Appreciate all the help guys!)

Ok.
Time to go back to basics.. it sounds like it needs a basic service.

Did you manage to drive it back to your place?

MIL. Error Displayed.. or fault lamp lit.

This SHOULD leave an error code..pointing towards where the issue might be.

Best bet: plug in an OBD fault code reader

Then.. SEARCH that code on here.

You will find a few posts about it.. should point to what the was remedy on somebody elses GP.


CODE READERS.. its an industry standard
On Board Diagnostics..
Can be bought from around £10...(type OBD into ebay..)

But ask around ..somebody you know will have access to one.
