Went to look at/buy a car today 2006 1.8Zetec, nice car., all seems Ok
Whilst looking around the car I opened the boot and set off the alarm.
Quickly went to the ignition switched car ignition switch to first position and then off, and alarm stopped
However when I went to start the car, it would not start, the instrument panel instuments flashed witha clicking noise ,
and a red light was flashing (I think) to the right of the clock
The owner was at work and his wife was not sure about operation.
Over the phone the owner seemed to think it was the battery, but I am thinking imobiliser issue
Can anyone shed any light ?
