Hi all,

Can anyone advise what the most likley cause of an electical problem which my S3 has developed whilst standing (under a car cover) for several months.

I charcged and reconnected the battery yesterday and attempted to start her, after several turns of the engine the starter motor started to make a noise asif it was having problems meshing with the starter ring.

I also noticed with the ignition in the off position, and the key removed the Red ignition warning light and the orange fuel warning light were both still illuminated.

Any ideas.

Pete

First thing I would check would be polarity of battery, did it get charged right way round ?

Can't understand how the starter would have turned the engine over though if the battery had been charged the wrong way (and it must have been totally dead to have done that).
