Dead Battery? Please help
Hi there guys - I've got a 147 Collezione 1.6 (Around 3-4 years old) and I've not driven it for around 3-4 months. Recently I tried to jumpstart it. The car started for a while - but I realised that the wiper was not working (might be fused during the jumpstart?). However - after a short while, around 5-10 min. The car died on itself. The engine sounds like its overworking (loud and u know cranky).
What problem u guys think this is? Do you think its a dead battery and how much would it cost to repair? Also - I've not got any breakdown cover on it. I was wondering if I would liek to get it to a garage - how do I get it there? Using a tow truck? How much would that cost as well? I live around the central Nottingham area - any recommendations for tow companies which are cheap or garages which do outcall services for a reasonable price?
Thanks alot guys
