Hey guys im after some more help.
This morning when i finished work i turned on the ignition and my Rev and fuel tacho's went from left to right and interior lights started flashing but engine wouldnt turn over. I left it a min then tried again. Same thing happened but then all lights on dash stayed on. their was still life in the battery but wouldnt start. My mate gave me a push and i bumped her then she started. I didnt want to stop so came straight home.
I had a look under the bonnet when i got home and engine still running but couldnt see anything out of the ordinary?
All i can think of is maybe the battery is on its way out because it looks old.

Any clues??
Thanks guys.

i might treat the car to a new battery anyway but i just went out to check the car again and it started first time with no trouble. So now im not too sure if it is a battery problem.
No sign of leaks and engine sounds normal. Maybe some crap fuel or filter need changing???
