Hi my name is*****’m just reading your comments, can you confirm the battery is new and fully charged? Why did the battery need replacement?
can you tell me what happens when you turn the ignition on? Does the engine turn over or does it click and the ignition lights flicker?
how long has the car not been used?
I look forward to your replies and I’ll try my best to help you many
