I have found a receipt in the paperwork from the guy I bought the car from, it had a new battery 9 months ago.
It's not a good brand name battery but it is labelled as performance - it's a 60mh and 580 cca so close to what is recommended.
I've put 2 & 2 together and think the battery needs a charge!!!
A couple weeks ago I foolish ran out of petrol, I was on my own and on a slight hill, only slight mind so I have to drive the car on the starter motor about 20 yards and I have barely used the car since.
I hadn't given it any thought until I read the advice your guys have offered.
If charging it doesn't work i'll buy a Varta Silver Dynamic as it seems to tick all the right boxes.
I'll update this post when i've been to halfrauds and bought a charger and given the battery a session.
