PostSubject: My car won't start   My car won't start Empty10th August 2011, 15:09

It did this last week then decided to work....

I can turn the battery on. But when I try to turn on the ignition it just clicks and things start beeping at me. HELP PLEASE. I DO NOT LIKE BUSSES, especially when I have fuel in the car! Sad

Thanks x

I wish I was nearer to you. We have one of those portable jump starters. It is really powerful and has got us out of trouble several times. Don't despair, a knight in shining armour will soon appear on this board. Do you have Homestart emergency service at all? But you'd need to take it for a run after.

Just a flat battery Li - see if one of your neighbours has some jump leads. If you can get it started then give it a reasonable run to start putting some charge back in.

Is Harry local to you?

I had this with Chilli does all your warning lights come on & windows go down? That what chilli.

Sounds like battery to me. Try & get some one to jump him & see.

There quite easy to change but just expensive! U don't have to have genuine unless u want to. U got a car shop or parts place as they should b able to help u if no one on here volunteers?

Good luck xx

I said it was the battery last week! if it's gone flat again and you've been using it I'd say the battery needs replacing

Hi Princessriot it does sound like the battery has gone flat now you could try to recharge the battery back up with a battery charger and if it is as flat as it sounds you will need to charge it for as least 48 hours to put a full charge back in it, if you take it for a good run it will help it but not charge the battery enough so sort out you problem as your vehicle has an alternator fitted to it and it will only charge it back up to the same charge state that it was at when you start the vehicle, lots of science involved but take my word this is ture only an old dynamo will keep charging a flat battery not sure where you live but I work for a motor factor and may be able to get a discount at a branch near you or you can send me your reg and I can sort you out with a battery at the next meet.

Regards
