    Default HELP - 360 won't start !

    Haven't used the car in a while, but it has been on a trickle charger. Went to start it this morning, both the green lights on the trickle charger are on showing its charged, but the car won't start and it looks like its because of a lack of power. The trickle charger went straight to red after trying to start in a couple of times.

    I have turned to ECU on and off etc, nothing.

    Any ideas? Don't have another car to use and need to get somehwere pretty quick.

    You didn't say if the engine was actually turning over, but since you mentioned that the red charging light on the charger came on I presume it is.

    Is it turning over too slowly to fire up?

    Did you press the immobiliser button the remote control, I'm simply guessing that the car might have been unlocked, but that the immobiliser is on ??

    If you try to start the car with charger still plugged in ,it may have blown the fuse

    The battery needs replacing, managed to jump start it and do what i needed to do and get it back. I think i need a new trickle charger and battery, so will do that on the 27th.

    I am quite worried that the odometer is now reading only 456 miles, it seems to have lost about 22,000 somewhere. Anyone know what thats all about ?

    This might work!

    Turn the battery off, at the master switch, with the key in the ignition. Then turn the key to position 1, and then turn key to off position. Then turn the battery back on.
