No i have not solved the problem yet and i am willing to wait for your answer
I would like you to continue as money as been taken out of my account for this service ........are you confident of finding a professional to assist me or am i wasting my time and money.......what is the problem with finding a professional to assist me
if i drove it now at this moment it would start and drive perfectly and i could stop at the shops for maybe up to an hour and it would start and drive again no problem but if i was to stay a bit longer say maybe 2 hours or more it would crank fine but just wont catch at this point if i boost the battery it starts and drives normally again but i'm not sure if its the booster that helps or the fact that its been 10/15 mins before i have tried to restart as on one occasion the booster made no difference and i phoned the AA but after waiting 20 mins i decided to try start it again without the booster and it fired up perfectly.. the recurring theme seems to be if i only use it for driving to and from work there's no problem as it's been stood more than 8 hours in between........but if i make other journeys as well that's when there could be a problem...140000 miles on the car not had a full service recently apart from mot work recent repair for new brake discs last year i did have my central locking system repaired as the alarm would go off and the doors would lock while driving but cannot remember if this was before or after my starting problem...the only things i have had tested are the battery and alternator ...but no problem there..no parts replaced...
I decided to take a chance and replace the ignition switch,which was ok for 3 journeys, but this morning the engine cut out while driving again...then would crank but not start till i used the battery booster...any idea ??
