When either the Cup or the Spider has gone completely flat, they have both re-started OK with normal ignition key after battery re-charge.

Usually it's inevitable that the alarm sounds when fitting the terminals back onto the battery of the GTV as the boot will be open. Keep the key fob close at hand while you do this, (not in the ignition in case the central locking arms itself). It sometimes takes two attempts at priming and turning off alarm via the fob to get the noise to stop. I have found that when there is hardly any power left in the battery the windows will stay in 'auto drop' position and the two goes with the fob seem to correct this. Hope all goes well.
