My Vel Satis had this exact issue. A brand new battery is what it needed, the old battery was so knackered that it just wasn't holding enough charge to start the car, even after being fully charged overnight.

Good luck!

Hi,this is fairly common to Lagunas. The exciter wire to the starter motor is green. You need to put a meter to it and see if it lights when you press the starter button.If it doesnt if you look to the right of the battery you will see some connector blocks, I think they are grey with a purple clip. One of the blocks will contain this wire. You can tell its green going into the block and white going out. There will be a bad connection there or even the wire fell out of the plug. I think youve had a low battery and when youve taken the battery off to charge it the wire has been disturbed. Good luck
