Well Graham,Did you get is sussed.
The reason I ask is yesterday around lunchtime I asked my daughter how the wee Bravo had handled the cold weather after its major surgery...I had real bother starting it this morning and no power .I switched it off it started again and went fine.
Around 1630 got a phone call from her "Dad, My car wont start"...Attended loadsa power in the battery but nowt out starter motor...I reckoned I'll assume a jammed starter ..Rocked it and it started on the key...I set off first, stupidly, got around the block when mobile rang..Dad it had no power and I switched it off to see if it worked like this morning and Now Nothing again...Went back Bumped it and followed her to our house.
Switched engine on and off to try to simulate the fault..BUT it worked fine,every time.
She set off to Kilmarnock and a wee while later...while up to my eyes sorting out Laceys insurance which went up a tenner when I enter the reggie no....should have accepted and let them ask for the reg no of the insured vehicle...But now protected and only a £200 compulsory excess (Saga was £350) with no voluntary...I'm happy even although it should have been cheaper (But was still a fair amount cheaper than Saga),Dad I stopped for petrol and it wont start.
Got Stu the Blu to run me up to the petrol station in East Kilbride and it started on the key first time....Tried at 2330 last night after leaving it since we returned around 1930 and it started first turn of the key (And it was still freezing then)..This morning again started no prblem at all...I suspect the starter motor.(BUT ITS THE LACK OF POWER WHICH WAS SIMILAR TO POMEOS MAF PROBLEM..ALL THOSE SPARE MAFS AND THE BRAVO IF IT HAS ONE IS DIFFERENT
)...As far as I can see its only the ignition switch and starter in the circuit.
Will get it sussed soon.I hope.
How did yours pan out.
PS Now I have left Saga, well on the 4th.My life is full of little SAGAS..AARGH
We all have breakdown cover BUT save it for real serious issues...We sholud have used it BUT as you say Graham its the wait esp yesterday with all the calls they would have got.
