97 gtv ts battery changed wont turn over?
Hi there my first post as I am a newbie so please be gentle,
My battery was dying so I took her to the garage today.
On fitting said battery the alarm was going off constantly ( original scorpion 918u) I told my mechanic this had happened the last time it was done and started her with the alarm going and pressed the left hand fob button whilst turning over and my 916 gtv ts started but with the alarm sounding.
However on switching off and trying to re start nothing from the starter all the lights on the dash come on and go out as they should including the injection light and yellow key code light.
I have changed the battery once myself with no issues it was totally flat then after a lay up of a year on the drive I just fitted a new battery with no problems.The last time it was done my m8 a different mechanic back then had the same issues and wanted the master key which I said would make no difference as it is just used to program other keys and that was when it started with the red key and cancelling the alarm with it running. This time no joy with that method as now it wont even turn over we have left the battery disconnected over night to see it that makes a difference when it did start it was very laboured and not keen.
I do not have the key for the alarm unit under the flap on the right hand wheel arch any ideas please I have owned my gtv for 15 years and this is only the second time I have been let down! Last time it was the crank speed sensor that must be a record 15 years and only 2 breakdowns! Thanks in anticipation and sorry for the long post.
