Last weekend my 3.0 Super was messing about. I went to start the car and all the lights on the dash came on in 'position II' on the ignition as normal. I then tried to start the car and there was nothing - no sign of life. When I tried again, everything had failed.
I thought the battery was knackered, but that has turned out to be fine as it turned over perfectly. The only way I got it going was to make contact with another battery (ie jump start). I re-set the alarm/locking and it started. I guess there was interferance with the immobiliser.
Upon losing my beloved 164 QV to fire, I decided to disconnect the battery and I noticed the positive terminal was very tight. I also noticed that it had cracked and broken in several places and therefore not making good enough contact on the battery terminal to start the car. This may of engaged some sort of immobiliser issue.
I'm hoping that, now I've got a new one, that this will rectifiy the problem. I can't help feeling there's an electrical gremlin that may be causing the problem as it was so sudden.
Anyone else experience anything similar?
