Every now and then, but more frequently recently, and only on 'First Start' when putting the key fob into the notch, all the display lights would drain away and the car wouldn't start (Qtroninc BTW). So, after enduring this again this morning, I decided to replace the battery.
Low and Behold, it's still the original battery in the vehicle (58). It was a Magnetti Marelli 12V 72Ah 570A Heavy duty, part No...71765419.
All is forgiven. It's lasted this long so not too bad all things (Italian) considered.
Replaced it with a Bosch S5 096 77AH 780 which fitted the battery tray perfectly. Got it feom Euro car parts in Abingdon (branches all over the place) for 96.70 inc VAT. Had to get it fitted at my local garage using a code 'rememberer' (not a real word) so I didn't lose any programmed info .
Will post further if it wasn't the battery.....................
