Welcome to the Werkz.

So when you try to start it the engine doesn't actually crank at all, or it cranks but doesn't fire?
How long has it been since it was started? Has anything been done to it between when it last ran and this issue occuring?


Riding in style

this is part of the problem i bought the car from a friend he parked it at home came out next morning to find battery dead he tried a jump start and engine would not turn over its been stood 3 months , i fitted new battery removed starter and checked it it works fine , when you turn ignition on dash lights flicker a little bit just like a low battery and indiator on have just spoke to him he says he had it coded and it came up ecu, the car is mint seams a shame to break it it only stands me at 300 its a 51 plate 318 se est 8 month tax and test

Judging the description of lights flickering in start up I would assume your alternator is bad. Same thing happened on my car. Take it out and have it tested just to make sure.
