My car's been sat now for about a month, as I just cannot get the thing started. I do have another thread, but that's getting lost among a couple of other problems I was having with flickering lights.
The car unlocks fine, the radio works, the dash lights up, everything's fine - until you come to start the car.
Put the key in the dash, press the brake/clutch and the car turns over. It will catch as if it's about to start, but then it cuts out immediately.
When it was running, the temperature was fine, the oil levels are fine, everything was alright.
The error that I have is that I have the check engine light on & my service schedule has expired. (I've not long owned the car, and in trying to get it to start, it's now told me it needs a service)
It was suggested that the battery might be at fault, but I have tried 4 different batteries on it, of varying CCA, but no joy.
It had one error code P0237, but that was cleared and it's not come back again (even though my check engine light is on). Plugging it in now, no error codes come up at all.
I need to get my car in to a garage, but I could really do without towing it up there - I could do with a few things to check to try to get it started!
Would a video of the problem help at all?
If anyone might be able to suggest some common things to check, I will be hugely grateful!
I only drove it for a couple of weeks, then this happened! I miss it already!
Thanks in advance!
