Hi there,

Every time I try to start the car it won't start and the central locking keeps moving. I've checked to see if it's the battery by jump starting however there is a green light on the battery and it still didn't start. Any ideas of what my problem may be?

Thank you

Kathleen

Kathleen:

I have to be honest, it sounds like a weak battery. Does the start even turn the engine over? If not, do you hear a click or clicking when you try to start it?

Nah it doesn't turn the engine over. Yes I do hear a clicking noise when I try to turn the ignition on.

Have the battery tested. I feel you'll find that it is weak and doesn't pass a load test. Most parts stores will test it for free.
