  1. Hi guys quick update, the car went into fords last Thursday. They looked at it on Friday and told me that the car has been involved in an accident they will not repair it under warranty. The quoted me £180 p/h. I had no choice but to give it to someone my mate knows recormended. I'll call him today hopefully it is all done :)
  2. Hi guys so I charged the battery again still no joy :( I have dropped it off to fords as its still under warranty hopefully they will fix it for free, I'm sure they will try wriggling out of it. Let you guys know what they find tomorrow
  3. hi, i tried bump starting it but all it did was show me a message telling me how to start it with the cluch down and pressing the power button. i dont have aa or rac cover, didnt think i would need it with a not even three year old car :( ill charge the battery again tomorrow and check the voltage in the evening hopefully its a simple battery change. i did try using jump leads and that didnt fix it either. if i cant fix it ill have to take it to the dealer. The car is in under warranty till the end of the month. ill let u guys no the results of the battery readings tomorrow :)
  4. hi mate, thanks for the swift reply. i charged the battery yesterday and a bit this morning and i still did the clicking noise. the clicking noise semed to be coming from the boot. i followed the sound it it lead to a fuse box. you think maybe the starter motor solonoid is stuck??
