Recommended Posts

Went to the car wash earlier on, came out from there to Asda which is literally 500 mtrs up the road,did some shopping went back to the car and it wouldn't start,so called AA out,Guy said that it wasn't anything to do with the car wash  but a spontaneous thing to happen.He took a plug out to see if there was a spark and nothing zilch.So anyway just got towed back to my home.???Does anyone one here have a clue as to what has happened with the car.

Any answers on this would be great as i need my car for work on monday.

Might be an idea to start with the basics, like what year/model do you have ?

OK, In that case I'm supprised the AA guy didn't do a fault code scan as that might of highlighted the reason, and without that any fault finding would be based on replacing things until you have a fix. Have you checked the obvious things like blown fuses ? The coil pack is also a known weak area

Yeah coil would br my first look, it may have been on the cards for a while and the carwash was the last straw
