I was gunna say that! haha

Could be the starter, but could also be the battery.
My car wouldn't start when my old battery was low, and once i jumped it, it was fine. I just had to be careful to use NO electric without the engine on lol.

As said possibly starter motor then? Shove it in gear and rock that bastad :P

Otherwise battery either crapped, or the starter motor/battery connections are rotted or loose?

Judging by it working the other day i would of said a wire or starter was on its way out, might also be worth checking if an earthing cable is loose or breaking??

When my mk4 fiesta wouldnt start at all an earth lead was found to have given up the ghost and caused a short :doh:

French electrics = wank

Hi
by way you are saying that it wont tick over do you mean wont turn over? if then do you get a click or anything when you turn the key or interior light dip?

Definately sounds like starter motor if it wont do anything when you turn the key, keeps doing it on my van, its basically the motor sticking. As said stick it in gear with handbrake off and push it forwards and backwards and that should free it. Sometimes it dont do it straight away but it will work. If it does take ages then bump start it if your on a slope.

When Adrian was on the phone to you and you said about it being £70 for a new lower arm my jaw dropped! Bloody french cars lol. He said you was going to get the spanners out and do it yourself, good on ya! No one should get ripped off by garages, especially for the amount of labour they wanted to charge you too! lol
