Sorry to anyone who has already seen this problem, I have posted it on the end of another thread, but here it is, I would be very grateful if someone could help me out:
I tried to start my Signum, turned it over a few times and eventually the battery died. I put some jump leads to it and cranked the engine again. After about 20 seconds it started and then stopped after 5 seconds. Cranked it again for 10 seconds and it eventually started and stayed running. What could this be? Battery? Glow plugs?
(I did the glow plug trick, ignition on and off a few times to get them warmed up, the battery may be dodgy, but when I had the other car and jump leads attached, it seemed to have a good turn over.)
After getting it to start, I drove it up and down the village a few times starting and stopping it without any problems. I then got home, parked it, and tried starting it again, it started and the stopped with a Spanner icon on the dash. I tried to start it again, and when I turned the key, nothing happened at all, turned it off and then tried again a couple of times and then the starter motor turned over and the car started!!!!!
What could the problem be?
Leak off pipes are talked about a lot on these forums for a similar problem, but they all look OK to me! Could it be the battery?
I put my code scanner on the car but there were no fault codes registered!
The car did have P0500 (Speed sensor) and P1222 (Traction control circuit fail) on it when I bought it, but nothing now!
Any help would be gratefully received
