Have had this problem for a while and now its starting to drive me mad, after just having had to walk 2 miles home on icy pavements...its not fun!!!
The car will start fine and run well, and then for no reason just wont start again.
Have had it into the garage and they couldnt find anything wrong apart from maybe a problem with the heater coming on but this was fixd with a new rheostat. The car was then returned to me and it sat over the holidays (2 days) and did nothing and started first time. Have been driving for the last day fine. Then finished work tonight at 9 started the car, ok, stopped at the shop for a paper, no more than 10 minutes, came out dead, nothing.
Lights come on, radio works, heater works, it just wont start.
When I turn on the ignition there is a clicking and a kind of pop coming from the speakers but the engine wont start.
It usually starts first time with a booster which I cant get arranged until tomorrow, which suggests its the battery.
We've checked the battery is charging ok when the engine is running which it is.
Ive recently fitted new lights with the angel eyes, also fitted new electric mirrors and changed the interior lights to blue LED's. Just wondered if this would affect it.
Any help, ideas, would be gratefully accepted.
Im not looking forward to the 2 mile hike back to the car first thing tomorrow morning either!!!!!!!!!!!!
