Re: 156 jtd dead wont turn over


Is the key symbol flashing or lit on the middle display in the speedo housing?

Check the battery positive terminal is tight. Mine died like yours once and that's all it was.

Re: 156 jtd dead wont turn over

on top of the battery are 2 fuses, brown, and red, check these.
Also get someone to wiggle the box on top as you try to start the car, these fracture the connector between the battery positive and the fuses ontop which causes ignition eqpt to work but it can not throughput the required ampage to start the car.
My JTD has suffered both fuses and fractured positive battery linkage.
