Great news!

So… got in my car to start it to go home after work and… nothing… tiny tick from the starter and then all the lights went out… Had to get some mates to push it, then dump the clutch in 2nd gear and it popped into life… I’m going to throw on a new battery to rule that out first, but I’m certainly going through a rough patch recently, lol! :rofl:

In other news, gearbox was working great now! :rofl:

Brand new (very large!) battery installed and still have an electrical problem. Key in the ignition, dash comes on, fuel pump and injectors are audible, turn the ignition for the starter and it makes a ‘tick’ and then everything in the car turns off. I also noticed that if I just have the car turned off, turn on the sidelights - they work (but a bit dim?) and then turn on the headlights - all the electrics go off again.

Does that sound like anything in particular to anyone? I first thought ‘dodgy earth?’ - but does anyone else have any ideas to add?

I’ve asked TrackGroup to look into it, but thought I’d ask on here in case anyone else has suffered similar previously? :slight_smile:

Thank you!

No problems before hand?
Sounds like an iffy starter motor to me.

Just had a brand new starter, due to it sounding like a dodgy starter in the first instance :frowning:

Hopefully just a wiring hiccup with the new starter? As it’s recently been changed, it’s a logical place to start.

Car is now with the awesome TrackGroup to be investigated… :slight_smile: I hope to god that this is the last ‘hiccup’ it has for many, many years, lol!
