signs of a low/flat battery on my Corsa
my vauxhall corsa (2003) wouldn't start up this morning. I can turn the key but the engine won't fully kick in. I assume it is a low battery?Also, when I turned the key the accelerator wouldn't work. Is that normal for a low battery?
update: oppologies, I forgot to say that I haven't used the car for 5-6 weeks
Does sure sound like it. Can you have the voltage on the battery checked? You or a friend have a multimeter? It should read 12.3 or higher. How old is the battery? If that checks out ok, then we need to look at other areas.
it takes more power to fire up a fuel injected car- the FI electronics have to be juiced to work- so even if the engine is turning slowly, the spark won't be sufficient to light it up
