146 wont start - first time ever in 10 years
My 146 1.6TS would not start this morning - first time ever (after me boasting to everyone in work last week how reliable it is!)
All the dash lights were bright and the radio worked ok, but there was nothing when I turned the key. Thinking it is the battery, I quickly put the battery on charge, swapped the kids into my wifes car, took them to school and am now in work.
My plan is to go home lunch time put the battery back in and off we go.
BUT I cant help worrying that it may not be the battery as I used the car yesterday and cant see how it would run down overnight.
Also I had a strange event yesterday in B&Q where the central locking wouldnt work when I clicked the keyfob. The lights flashed as usual but the doors wouldnt open. I had to open the boot with the key and climb in the rear - not very dignified I know.
Could the two be related? What do I do if I get home and the car still wont start?
Any help gratefully appreciated.
