Have had a search on the forums but can't seem to find anything on this one.
Week or so ago the other half got in the car, remote central locking working fine. Turn the key, and nothing. Not even a click from the starter motor, central locking not working, absolutely nothing. Battery voltage was OK, reading 12.8V. Got some jump leads on it anyway, and after 5 minutes, it was able to start fine, starter motor turning the engine over well.
Fast forward to this morning. I get in the car, starts strong, no problems. After about 15 mins of driving, stop at a shop and in the time it took to come back to the car (2 minutes, if that) the car had completely died with the same behaviour as before. Jump start sorted it, despite battery voltage OK.
Battery terminals are clean and tight, and I'm not getting any codes from Multi ECU Scan.
So gents, any ideas what this might be?
Thanks in advance!
