Hi plz help! My car was struggling to start to weeks ago. Then when I popped out in it last week got back in turned the Key nothing happened just a ticking all dash lights came on ect. Bumped it got it home. Seemed ok after so carried on using then did it again. Bumped it again. So brought a new starter motor put it on. Had to bump again cuz battery was flat. Drove for a while seemed fined turned on off started start away. Left over night tryed this morning fine, turned it on off least three times on my trip this morning school run ect then went to get fuel. It's done it again now it won't start completely just a tick?

I don't trust those green sight lenses. I would recommend that you have the battery load tested. And yes, it if starts with a jump, chances are the battery is bad.
