I made a quick search but didnt see anything similar to my case.
I tried to start the car today, but no joy.
To begin with, it started but after 3 seconds it cut. I tried again, the engine is turning, the dashboard goes mad (starts with fading and then a range of errors come up). I tried again, it did start but immediatelly cut again. This time I heard a noise which I also heard two days ago: like a noisy rubber belt.
The car was fine until yesterday. The battery had given me some grief about 6 months ago but has been fine. Also the engine is turning and tries to fire but to no avail.
When I remove the key and try to start again, no messages appear on the dashboard and the lights are stong (so its not the battery right?).
Not sure if it is relevant, but the car is parked on a slope.
Any help welcome!
