I will try and explain as much as i can and here it goes,
OK my poor alfa has been sitting outside for over a year as i have lost my license (thats another story lol)
Anyhows, since its been out there i have still maintained it, as in starting it changed oil and antifreeze moving it the lot, anyhows because of the cold spells i have took the battery out and brought it inside the house as i know that the cold can really kill it, and i did that a week ago and started it up as i normally do.
Yesterday i put the battery in ( fully charged) tried to start it up ( all lights on dash and everything else lights up as normal) turned the key to start and everything shuts down, i turn the key off again and try to start and there is no power whatsoever.
When i take the cables off the battery and put them back on again, its all normal like the first stage but when i want the engine to start all powers goes again.
My question is what do you think is going on ??? is my starter gone?? electric short or some thing???
I am a little stumped by this and because i am getting my license back next month i am worried i may not be able to take it for a spin
All suggestions are fully appreciated
Thanks in advance
