Hi Tony.  It's probably your battery.  Fit a new one then check that the alternator is charging it properly by using a multimeter.

not 100% certain on this but i thought it could stop the starter motor from activating. on this forum many times it has been mentioned about the circuit board in the speedo unit needing resoldering. I thought I had seen mentioned a few times that people could make the car start by pressing on the speedo unit in a certain place to flex it slightly to reconnect the dodgy soldering connections.
