Scenic starting problem
I bought a Scenic in 2004 brand new from a dealer so its now 2 years old with 10,000 miles on the clock.
6 times since new has it been sent back to the dealer because I can't start it (it had a keycard that can be used as wireless).
Usually, the dash all lights up but I just get 3 clicks with alternating "steering locked" and "steering not locked".
The dealer always gets it working but can't find any problems. It's had other electrical faults like windows not shutting and doors not locking on one side.
It's a pain getting towed as its an automatic and I have to show the AA man how to take off the surround to the gears to press the button to manually move into Neutral (little trick I saw in the manual).
Anyway, I'm completely let down by this car. I once again found myself in a car park this afternoon with a wife and 3 small children and a car that wouldn't start. I've left it blocking the doors to the dealership on a Sunday in order that it gets immediate attention on the Monday (if they want to get in).
Come back Ford, all is forgiven.
Anyone have any input into my car's ailing health ? Please !
