Hi,

Wife went to use car this morning but will not start. Engine turns over fine but will not fire. All lights work including dash icons. When you try to start you can hear a whine rather than a clicking noise you get with flat battery. Replaced both front side lights yesterday and car was ok then.

Car as in sig.

Any help appreciated

If it turns over ok. Then it could be a fuel or electrical problem (Not a starter motor)
Do you have a code reader?
Check all the electrical connections and fuel lines near to where you where working yesterday, if you have a battery charger then charge the battery too.

Hi Gollum,
Thank you for your reply.

Don't have a code reader. Checked electrical connections and all feel ok. The battery is fully charged.

Yes. 4 by the side of the battery and two fuse boxes near the wing. All fuses are ok. Nothing else was touched yesterday so at a loss to know what it can be. Never happened before.

Just a silly question: did you check the fuel? Is there any fuel left in the fuel tank?

No not silly question really. Like they say don't overlook the obvious but in this case the tank is three quarters full.

Another question the lights u replaced were they exactly same as the old ones? Why not backtrack
Disconnect the new lights by taking bulbs out and try start.

Hi Picasso,

Yes they're exactly the same bulbs. Have bought headlight bulbs from same place before with no problems. Not got time to do anything now as I have to be at hospital for an op which is why its a PITA for this to happen now. The joys of motoring.

Thanks anyway Picasso

If a bulb is faulty for whatever reason could cause electrical short or not earthed properly only reason I ask is the cruise control doesn't like the rear bulb not working and fails to work. it might be that type of problem,
And if it was the last thing you did before problem occurred must be related?
