147 wont start

New to this forum, looking for help. Had current 147 for 5 years now. Been on holiday for 1 week, car left idle and now won't start. Thinking it may have been battery, gave it a push and started but felt kinda sluggish. Strangely radio kept cutting out but ran it for a few miles and thought it was OK. Once parked at home, it won't start again. Its as if battery is dead as the dash lights etc take a while to come on. Car is dead, not turning over. I do not have a clue about cars, guess its the computer, any advice from anyone.

Re: 147 wont start

My initial thought is crank sensor, but some preliminary checks can see if it's the relays or fuses under the bonnet, just remove each one in urn and check for corrosion of the terminal pins and ensure the fuses haven't blown, it may well be just one of them has wiggled it's way out.
