I've just joined the forum in the hope that i'll find a solution so I don't have to take it into the garage. I've been having starting problems for about 18months now.

Sometimes it starts straight off but usually it takes a good 10mins of turning the key before the engine kicks in. Once started, as long as it's not left for a long period of time it starts straight away.

When I turn the key, the electrics come on and there is this clicking sound coming from the left side of the dashboard underneath the glove box.

I'll try cleaning the key but not sure what else can be done. Any help is most appreciated.
