Well I left work last night and it started fine. Got home and then 10 minutes later went to put it down the drive to check the battery conections etc and it would not start. For over an hour my husband tried to start it, he thought it might be the battery so tried to jump start it but nothing just dash board lights on and a clicking from the glove compartment but no noise from the engine.
My husband found the conectors for the starter motor and unplugged them and sprayed them with wd40 and like magic, it started straight away. Fingers crossed it started later on last night and was ok this morning so Im hoping it might have solved the problem and it may have just been damp in the conectors.
