Hey guys. My fiesta ha the battery die the other day. Charged it off the car and refitted it. Started perfect first time. Went out in it parked up etc. came back to it later and all I get when I go to crank it is a loud click. Battery seems to be perfect and car starts when bumped. Can someone please shine some lift on this please?

Thanks guys!!

The power doesn't dip when attempting to start like it did when it was almost dead

Sounds like a loose connection, have you tried tapping the starter motor with a hammer?

Also make sure the battery connections are tightened up correctly. One member not too long ago had a similar problem and it was due to a loose connection after replacing his battery
