    Default Signum Eelectrical Problem

    Hi Guys
    a new poster here,
    I just went to start my 2004 V6 CDI Signum after parking it for one hour and it will not start. All that is happening are all the dash lights are randomly flashing/flickering, if i move the auto gear leaver the sellonod clicks in and out. The doors will not lock they just go down then come back up. No imbolbiliser warning light is showing.
    Is there a eletric re-set button? all help would be very welcome

    thanks

    HI Lump

    battery should be OK, never been a problem and the car starts first time every time, no problems today, it does seem some sort of elec fault in the way the lights on the dash are flickering

    did you try to remove - (negative) on battery for about half an hour just to reset everything? this has helped me a few times

    btw, don't forget that you'll have to input radio code if you do that

    tried the above but no good,
    parked the car yesterday after 2 hour journey (no ignition or warning lights showing). came to move the car 1 hour later and nothing (car might have turned over half a turn - not quite sure)
    all dash lights are now flickering and soloniod(s) clicking in and out, it will not turn over after fast charging charging for three hours also will not turn over trying to jump start from another car. (lights do become brighter and stop flickering with another car attached) The other car cars engine slows alot with the amount of current it trys to take. could this be caused by a starter motor problem? stuck in, could a starter motor cause this fault or could it be that the battery has packed up and shorting out. any ideas? also if i have to tap the starter motor (auto - so cant rock in gear) where is it situated?

    thanks

    wonder if its a problem on the autobox not realising that its in park ??
    therefore not allowing the vehicle to start ??

    does the radio work

    would the gearbox ecu need resetting - i know some vehicles with auto boxes if the battery goes flat, you cannot select neutral/park electronically so therefore cannot be started and subsequently your stuck

    If it is the auto solenoid not re-alising its in P and stopping starting,then u should be able to over ride by pushing solenoid in manually. Had similar on a toyota 4x4 I once owned and was solenoid not quite pressing in enough,just came loose tightened up and was ok after.9 solenoid usually mounted on a bracket near gear stick, just remove gaiter and locate)
