Please someone help me
I have a 147 selespeed, 2 1/2 months old.. But i cant start it.
drove it some distance last weekend, and then left it for about a week. However now it wont start. It drops down into N as i would expect but the motor doesnt turn over. I have tried the alarm on off, starting from N from 2 from R and 1 but the same..nothing. I have even tried jumping starting it with someone elses car..this worked one, but now that wont work...
Sounds like a flat battery - does anything work??
Radio / lights / clock??
Sometimes if the battery goes completely flat, it won't restart as the ECU needs resetting.
If it's so new, you will be in the AA - give them a ring, and if they can't start it, they will take it to your dealer.
Is it not turning over at all? Or just not catching? If the latter, it could be the fuel cut-off switch under the passenger seat, try giving it a press and see what happens, what's the worst that could happen? eek! wink
still nothing. when i turned the alarm off, i heard a whirring, then as soon as i open the drivers door, it started again. however when you turn the key to MAR, check active, then when turned to AVV, it clunks, drops to N but doesnt start
havent physically used another battery, but using some pretty duty jump leads, and no difference. same noises.
This haapened once before and jump leads did the trick. But this time no joy.....cant believe teh battery would be too dead to start the car after a week..
