was heading around to a mates place tonight and bopped the car and went to start it and when i turned the key it turned once(starter) then everything went dead i mean everything as if the battery was not connected.
tried to jiggle the key about and play with the gearbox but nothin.
the strange thing is when i got out and shut the door and opened it again the interior light turned on but as soon as i would go to start the car everything would go dead again.
i checked the battery terminals and everything was tight ,i scratched my head as well but nothing happened, i am really stumped as to what would be causing this problem,ive got nrma coming around in the morning but would really like to know what could be causing this so i can give the nrma bloke a different opinion.
sometimes the most complex problems have the easiast solutions.
this morning the car struggled to start and when i returned later to start it ,nothingexcept a few clicks.
after alot of looking around and scratching heads i decided to check the battery terminals and low and behold the + was loose so tightened that and off she went.
mind you though while underneath the car looking for the starter motor ,i noticed a bad oil leak,will degrease it tomorrow to make sure as i didnt tighten the oil filter enough once
