I just signed up to see if you lot could give me any suggestion about what could be wrong with my car.
I own an estate 1.8D LX 96 N reg
This morning I put my key in the ignition and let everything charge up as normal, waiting until all the lights went out. Then turned the key to start the car and all the needles went to the right and then that was it, the engine didnít even try to start.
Now every time I try to start it nothing happens. I thought it might be the battery so I tried jumping it but no sign of life. The lights in the car, central locking etc work fine, just not the driverís console.
I was thinking that there was a surge and it blow one of the fuses, which Iíve not had time to look at right now as I had to get to work. Could it be the ignition barrel?
Any suggestions would be great.
