hi


Tried to start my car this morning just get a series of rapid clicks.

i have charged the batterye for around 2 hours but no difference.

I have checked the battery voltage theorugh the instrument cluster and it says 11.5v

Will i need to buy a new battery????

11.5 i think is on the low side but if you can get at the starter try giving it a knock whilst someone trys to turn it over might be a stick starter chk connections on starter as well that failing try a jumper on the battery if it fires then batterys at fault i,d try the jumper first .

i would get the alternator checked just to make sure its charging ok.
