1998 Ford Fiesta Ghia 1.25 Battery

Hi everyone

Im looking for a bit of help and I found this site so i thought i would give it a go.

A couple of weeks ago i went to my car and tried to start it but it just made a slow turning over sound with rapid clicks. i think this was because my battery had lost some of its charge so I jump started it and it started fine but this morning I went to start it and it did the sae thing again. I am going to buy a new battery today but my real question is that for the last couple of months my remote locking stopped working. the batery in the key was OK as the red light still comes on but the car doesnt do anything when it is pressed. About 4 weeks ago it started working agani randomly for about a week and a half then it stopped again. Also recently the interior light stopped coming on when the driver door was opened, it works fine for the passenger door but not the driver. Again this intermitantly comes back.

Do you think these problems might be related to my battery being on its last legs?

Hope someone can help

A new battery would help but all of these problems sound like you have an earthing problem.... there are several on the car. Check battery to chassis, engine to chassis - anything that connects to the body check for corrosion and fix any before doing anything else.
