Stilo 1.6V Dynamic Cold Start Issue

Hi Stilo Fans,

I am a fellow stilo owner. 1.6v Dynamic 5 door Petrol beast! lol.

I have an issue when i have leave my car for about a week, when i come to start it, it doesn't want to start at all, and i have to get a jump start all the time. I went away fro 3 weeks and the car wouldn't even open, so i don't know if something is draining the battery? Does anyone know of any reason this would happen? How can i prevent this from happening again?

Regards,

Gaz

Buy a new battery! I'n not kidding. Stilo's are very intolerant of batteries which are at less than their best (many of the electrical gremlins you read about here are battery-related).

Get the most powerful one you can afford. Opinion on here suggests at least 66Ah, preferably 74Ah. Bet it will cure your problems...
