Customer Question

Hi
I have a diesel Citron C3, manual 2008 model.
I filled it up with diesel (£10) to day and after paying went to start it and there was nothing _ the engine didn’t fire, the electric windows don’t work. There was a click sound, as if the solenoid was stuck. Tried a push start. The engine turned but didn’t fire. Tried a jump start – the battery warning light started coming on and off – but again the engine didn’t turn or fire – infact no noise at all.
Now I have disconnected the battery for two hours and tried to start the car. Again nothing – but the battery warning light is not, on and off and again there is the clicking noise on the LHS of the car.
I am a driving Instructor and until that moment there was no sign of any problems. Can you help?
