Hi folks!  :)

 

So, starter button seems to work intermittently.

Sometimes works perfectly 1st time

Sometimes have to try 2 or 3 times

Yesterday, nothing, nil, nada - luckily was somewhere where I could get a gentle roll on and bump start

 

Turning keys always gives right clicking flowing noises, radio on etc

 

What happens next?  :unsure:

Check for the relay socket connectors being pushed back on the terminal block, happened to me, they would randomly touch (the relay pins) and the car would start, but randomly not touch and the car not start

WD40 sprayed onto the screws holding the covering box won't drip onto anything sensitive will it?  :tumble:

WD-40 is non-conductive.

Ok, finally got round to it

 

Can I just check; plugplug in and out like fuses?

No special precautions like disconnecting battery..

 

Which one opens the car when you're locked out?
