Hoping anyone can point me in the right direction..
I've recently bought a Brera 1750 tbi.
Things were good in the beginning (accept from some minor fixable details) but now randomly the car won't start/ignite.
- I put the key in the slot, apply the break and press the start button.
- Starter motor runs for a few moments but the engine will not start.
- Do this for a few times and the weird clacking noise appears, locking the key. Now weird low power stuff happens (hill control, engine warnings, abs, etc etc)
- When I disconnect the battery for half an hour and try again, it starts!
Dealer (sigh..) can't find the problem..! They replaced the battery but problems remain. When the car is there it doesn't happen..
It's totally random.. could not happen for a week and suddenly for 2 days straight. When 'fixed' by disconnecting the battery I can do 20 start cycles, without any problem..
