HELP! Mrs semtex stranded (1.9JTD 16V)
a long shot this one! Just had a call from the other half to say the car won't start. Now, not being the most mechanically minded (her, not me!) I haven't been able to get much detail. Only what I can hear down the phone (like i said, a long shot!).
It sounds like the engine is turning over OK, and doesn't sound like the battery is weak. But whilst the key is turned to the start postion the cranking just stops dead. No warnings on dash, all electrics are working as they should, no odd behaviour from the dials. The car had been sitting for about 9 hours, with nothing unusual happening driving it prior
I've been able to direct her to check battery connections, and that the fuel cut off switch is pressed in.
Any ideas for simple things I can direct over the phone?!?
