    Car wont start!!!!!

    I need help guys!!!

    Right my ACT was fine yesterday. Went out today, and it would not start. All the electrics come on but when you turn the key round to start the car, it just clicks, doesn't even attemp to turn over.

    I came home tonight and had to open it with the key (remote is not working), alarm did not go off so it must have been disabled since this morning. I then thought i'd come in and go on here to get help but now it's stuck open and I cannot lock the car, I can't turn the key to lock it or push the door pins down.


    HELP

    Flat Battery, jump leads and a good 30-45 minute run.

    Right, Ye it was the battery - FLAT I've just took it a good run.

    I didn't think it was the battery as when I was turning the key the cd player/sub & amp was coming on, all the lights on the dash etc were on fully and exterior lights were all fully lighting up too. But it wasn't even attempting to turn over at all.

    Ah well, thanks guys

    Cheers

    I had the exact same thing last week mate, central locking was acting weird, alarm going off etc.
    Was glad it was just a flat battery as well

    If weird shit starts happening to the electrical systems on your car, the battery is the first thing you should be checking.
