Can anybody help? My Mondeo Ghia Automatic went flat (my own fault) and I cannot get it started with my Battery Power Pack. It makes a grinding clicking noise when I turn the ignition and the instrument panel flickers. Before this I was having a problem with the interior lights coming on by themselves and the alarm going off a lot. Also when driving the gears used to shift into neutral (high revs and no power) which I'm guessing at a diagnostic problem. Can anybody suggest an easy logical solution (such as a new battery). I'm new and rubbish with cars so be gentle please. Thanks

Takes a lot of energy to turn the engine over so a new battery would be the obvious place to start. Have you tried charging it up? Jump starting it?

All the other problems might be cause or migh be effect. I would try to start it with another battery first and if that didn't work then take it down to auto electrics or somewhere.
