Hi Dus,


I am afraid that I am not mechanically/electrically expert, but there are many members who are and will assist.


Being a former Accountant, I would usually go for the cheapest option, which would be to give it a bit of a squirt with WD40.


That might clean the contacts, which I am guessing to be the fault,

Hi Peter I couldn't get the car to start at all even when hooked up the other half car to it I think I know the problem with that the reverse lights are on sometimes when it's in park and engine turned off if I put it in neutral tennis starts first time so I think the battery is fine the indicator worked earlier but the engine management light came on but still drives smooth and gearbox change is smooth I was wondering if the engine management light could be to do with it running low on petrol it has 88 miles left on the read out and it's just under a quarter of a tank left
