Getting fed up of posting these topics on here now
But I have yet another issue with my poor focus.
During my ownership of the car it has failed to start on 3 occasions;
The first was in works car park after a night shift after it had been raining, it didn't start the first time, thought it was a bit strange, tried a second time and it started perfectly and I drove home.
The second was in Morrisons car park when we had that recent heatwave, this time was worse and it took about 3 attempts to start, it will make the noise of it trying to turn over but it won't start so I'll have to switch it back off and try again till it finally starts.
The third time was parked on the driveway, again in the heatwave, this time was the worst and it took about 5 attempts and it still wouldn't start. Went back in the house for maybe a minute, got back in the car and it started this time first time.
I noticed on one of the occasions the check battery light popped up on the dash for a second or two.
Took it to Halfords soon after to have the battery tested, it only showed 47% start power and was the original ford battery that was put in the car 7 years ago. We put it down to this and I purchased a Bosch silver battery for around for just under a £100 fitted. This was only 3 weeks ago on Friday the 13th, if your superstitious (unlike me) you'll notice a pattern emerging cause I also bought the car on the earlier Friday the 13th of this year.
Anyway.. Parked in Tesco car park with the Missus today, when we got back in the car, it wouldn't start.. Took about 5 attempts then it finally started. It can't be a problem with the battery itself cause it's a brand new Bosch silver not even a month old.
Has anyone on here got any advice or ideas on what the problem may be?
Already thinking of trying to P/X it in for what I can get for it and get another Ghia if possible.
