    Default Car won't start/turn over

    Hi All,

    Just went to start the car this afternoon and it wont turn-over (its a 3.2)

    Getting regular knocking noise when I try to start which I'm guessing means the starter is goose'd.

    Just wondering if there were any common problems that cause s.motor to play up. Can you replace component parts (i.e. brushes) or is it the new/refurbished route.

    Cheers

    Sounds like a flat battery fella, you tried a jump pack or a jump start.

    I had a feel it could be assoc with batter as I have not been using her much for a few days - and its been short runs.

    Managed to get a charger and been on charge for an hour - fired up fine

    Spot on themarbleman

    I thought if the battery was low and you tried the starter it drew all the power and rest of the car died - but did not notice anything dimming (sorted now)
